We just came back from Wat Teepangkorn.
The way up and down is already great! As soon as you leave the main road at Lamai Beach you are driving during quite nice farmer fields and then up the rocky jungle road. On the way up and down we crossed only 2 other Motorbikes and a few 4 wheel drive Tour Jeeps. As more you go up as more adventure you will have with your Motorbike!
The view to Lamai and Chaweng Beach from the top is great.

Very nice views from up here of all around . One of the highest points in Samui. If in-experienced driver you need to be very careful. The roads are very tricky and also easy to get lost up in the mountains as many different roads. But if you are comfortable a scooter can go up here with a bit of work and a great adventure in the mountains.

This temple is best visited with a guide. We stopped here as part of our tour with Quadrophenia ATV tours (quad bikes). The views are amazing. Left me wondering how on earth the people who built this temple got all the materials so far up the mountain.

Apparently if you ring all the bells, starting at the top of the stairs and going all around, you will receive good luck.

There are a couple of market type stalls at the foot of the temple where you can purchase freshly cut coconuts and drinks.

Not for the faint hearted as its quite a trek up the hill to this Temple.
If you are going by scooter its not for first time riders, the best way is to pay a taxi or tour company to take you as it is very steep and not all of the road os paved.

The view is second to none on Samui, if you can do this as its amazing.
