Overview

This temple complex not only serves as a religious site for the monks who live and worship there, but also features a maze of natural caves in an overgrown jungle valley where stone tools, pottery remains and the mold for making Buddha footprints have been excavated.

We had high hopes of making it to the top but the amount of steps wore my knees down. You need a fair amount of energy and be relatively fit to reach the top and then benefit from the stunning view. We managed to see...More

We almost didn't go because we weren't sure if we wanted to hike up 1,200+ stairs. We're so glad we did because the 360 degree views are absolutely spectacular. Sunset here is one of the highlights of our time in Krabi. A fit person can...More

Amazing view! View minutes away from downtown with scooter. You should climb up the stairs in the very early morning because of the heat (NLT 08:00 a.m)

We took a cab from Krabi town to get here at 6am to start the walk. The route is obvious as it's all stairs, we did need a phone light at that time though. It took us maybe 20/25 mins, it's a tough climb. We...More

Quite a steep climb to the top (all concrete steps) but definitely worth it! Great 360 degree view from the top, invigorating! Watch out for the monkeys at the beginning of the climb, they're harmless but will go for your bag if you're not careful...More

The Buddha at the top along with the views are well worth the climb to the top. Beware the monkey's between steps 150ish to 250. Yeah, they look all cute sitting on the railing and such but they do leap without warning and will steal...More

We rented a motorbike (scooter) for 250 baht per day. Pretty easy road. No idea on taxi or tour prices, but I do know that you don't see buses very often, so I imagine you would have to wait quite a long time to get on one... More
