Worth the trip and climb.

One of the outlying wats of sukkhotai and well worth the climb. Great views from the top and interesting remains.

A little out of town, with an apparent need to pay again for entrance into the historical park. This is followed by climbing a steep 300m pathway, where you can vie a standing Buddha image, which is also believed to be where King Ramkhamhaeng came on his white elephant to worship. Take a breather before descending again.

This is not a well know monument but well worth a visit. Set at the top of a small hill but it's not a hard climb and you can enoy some lovely views from above too

This is one of the further away temples. Was cycling there and quite exhausted when I arrived. To see this temple you have to climp up a hill, as to see on the pictures, but it's worth it. It's a big standig "Monday" Buddha and a fantastic view from up there.

A healthy climb up a stony path seems to deter a lot of visitors from visiting the remains of this temple and I would stay clear of this climb after rain . Well worth the effort though to admire an imposing Buddha statue .

A stone path--beautiful colors--leads up to a nice view. We are in our 60s but did not find it at all difficult. There are many sites in the area, but fairly spread out, so we found a tuk tuk tour a good idea.

This is completely unsuitable for disabled or infirm people, the climb is quite strenuous, particularly on a hot day. However, once your up there, the Buddha is really nice and the views over Sukhothai are wonderful.

It was really worth the climb. I climbed up to the other 2 ruins sights that are on the hillside and they were all impressive, but this huge standing Buddha is really spectacular. Do beware of aggressive mosquitoes if you stand around in the woods near here

I learned from my landlady that this is a good place for spot sunrise, so I got up in the very early morning and make a 20 mins or so bike ride , climb the hill. I had a wonderful Sukhothai-style dawn time.
