It's a very old temple and nice to see however it's small and kinda short to see it all. They only ask for 20 baht donation to get inside however. So I'd say if you are in the area, passing through or in Chiang Mai...More

A short bicycle ride outside the city. Surounded by nature,a small lake,a very interesting Wat with underground tunnels. Well worth the visit, one of the better wats in the Chang Mai area.

This is a beautiful Wat. THey provide a lift if required to get to mountain top. It was, however very crowded. We went late in the afternoon and stayed until the monks chanted at 6:00 pm. Interesting to experience.

This temple is a little out-of-the-way and well worth your time. The tunnels are quite beautiful. The grounds hold a few surprises, including the large stupa, the area with broken statues, and the posters of dogs and Buddhist sayings.

This temple is set in caves at the base of the hills. I saw a number of groups just explore the cave temple tunnels, then leave. This area can be a bit chilly in the morning so plan accordingly.

This temple is tranquil and shady, it is a popular tourist attraction. The unusual part is there are few Buddha statues inside connecting tunnels in small tight space. Also a wonderful big pagoda at the back. It was told that the Japanese hid themselves inside...More

Not really - wheelchair access is not really a priority in Thailand. Very view locations/wats facilitate wheelchairs. You can get into the complex, but not inside temples/buildings
