I'd like to apologise to everyone who said it was a hard climb. I just thought you all needed to toughen up. It's hot, sweaty, and some of the climb is more like single leg squats than steps. How hard can 1260 steps be right?...More

"Tiger Cave" is located about 3 kilometres from Krabi Town. Inside the cave there are what appear to be tiger paw prints in the stone.

A good experience of climbing a total of 1260 steps. Bring along bottle of water and wear sport shoes as well. You’ll surely love the view from the top.

I'm glad I didn't read the 'bad' and 'terrible' reviews before we chose this as part of a day of tourist attractions. First we went to the elephant sanctuary, then our guide for the day took us to a waterfall then here and although I...More

Tips: - Rent a motorbike for the day from Krabi and go here, less than a 15min drive. Typical rental is 200 baht a day. - Wear trainers. It's a lot of steps and your feet need as much support as possible. Quite a few...More
