Maesa Elephant Camp, Chiang Mai


In the lush tropical jungle of Chiang Mai's Maesa Valley , a big family of elephants lives side by side with their mahout caretakers. "Maesa Elephant Camp" is home to one of the largest assembly of elephants in the north of Thailand .
Our philosophy is to create a natural and healthy environment for the elephants while working to conserve and breed them,due to the dwindling number of Asian elephants left in the wild
Maesa Elephant Camp created a painting by a group of the eight artist elephants which became of interest on the world stage when the Ripley's Believe It Or Not and the Guinness World Records acknowledged this special painting as “the Largest Painting by a Group of Elephants” and “the Most Expensive Painting by A Group of Elephants” respectively.

Ripley's Believe It Or NoT | Guinness World Record
Ripley's Believe It Or Not (Thailand) awarded its coveted prize to Maesa Elephant Camp for its 2.40 metres wide and12 metres long painting entitled “Cold Wind, Swirling Mist, Charming Lanna ” and created by a group of eight elephant artists, as “the Largest Painting by A Group of Elephants” on December 13, 2004. The award was given to the camp on the day it staged the painting rehearsal for the Guinness World Records shooting that took place on February 19, 2005

At the rehearsal, the eight elephants - Kongkum, Wanpen, Kamsan, Lankam, Duanpen, Songpun, Punpetch and Pu Ood - spent six hours creating the painting which combines eight panels each created by a different elephant. Only non-toxic acrylic was used in the painting and the elephants took a short break of 15 - 20 minutes every hour to have some food and water and take a rest
