Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On top of the Koh Samui in the mountains above Lamai you will find the mighty statue of Phra Buddha Teepangkorn. The second big buddha on the island. To get to Teepangkorn Temple you have to take the challenging windling road to the top and you probably should think twice if you not an experienced driver! They also have a museum on the top with old artifacts. The view from here is amazing and there is nothing on the island that can top this, not even close!

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.

We visited this temple as part of a tour itinerary & I couldn’t really work out whether it was still in use or not. It is VERY run down & like a lot of places on the island, when something falls into disrepair, they seem to abandon it to rot & then just build another thing next to it. There are several of what look like falling down sheds & buildings, what appears to be a newish hall still a work in progress, then the tower itself is flooded on nearly every level & chunks have fallen off. There are what could have been shops at the top, but again they’re abandoned, and the monuments are just slowly falling into disrepair. If maintained properly this place could be stunning & the view from the top is probably amazing in a good day (it was cloudy & very rainy when we went to we only got a glimpse, but that was impressive) so this is probably somewhere you’d go to look outwards rather than at it.

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.

Very nice view over the island. The path is terrible so you need to take care how you get there. Very nice adventure.

We read about the top of the hill on Koh Samui: 605m above the sea level, with a 360 degrees view of the whole island (and beyond!) and a temple. It was a gray day so we took our rented scooter and headed up... Such an adventure, but beware: It is NOT FOR EVERYONE! There are a couple of streets you can choose from with a few viewpoints each, but the road is mostly unpaved at the end, so be sure to head there prepared (no first timers, it is quite narrow and steep too - know your limits!!!). Moreover a lot of 4x4 vehicles head up and down the road loaded with screaming tourists throwing water around, so you also need to be careful to that (or just join them on whatever tour they're doing). The view from the top is great, and while going up you pass through durian, coconut and banana plantations. There is a temple and a couple of Buddha's statues (quite big ones, actually). One of the statues is in a square with a bunch of bells that you can ring. There are a couple of restaurants along the way that also sell gasoline in case you run low on it. Other lower viewpoints also offer great views and are much easier to reach as the road is fully paved until those points. Overall our most exciting adventure on Koh Samui so far, lots of adrenaline! Only found another couple doing the same track with a scooter - all the others daring to were locals working in the plantations.

A lovely place - take a bike and ride up there for sunrise or sunset - the highest easily accesable point on Samui. I went there weekly over a year in 2022 when there were no tourists, breathtaking views...

The second Buddha on the island with museum on the top with nice artifacts. One of the statues is in a square with a bunch of bells that you can ring. Overall our most exciting adventure on Koh Samui. Overall, a worthwhile destination, Independently it is better not to drive , only with experienced drivers.
