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.

Uppon arrival there were already many monkeys. We brought bananas with us to feed them and they were really friendly. Many of them had a baby hanging on their chest on the time of our visit. Walking up the stairs to the temple was worth...More

Its a hard climb getting up the 1237 steps, but worth the view. Don'y forget to take a bottle of water, you will need it.

If I remember correctly there are 1238 steps to climb up to the top. It is quite intense but very rewarding once at the top. I strongly recommend it.

I was dreading this hike but looking back it was one of the highlights of my month-long trip. I went with three friends, all of us relatively healthy and in our mid-twenties. However, I'm definitely not fit and never exercise. But I made it!! Bathrooms...More

The steps up are steep and it was difficult so lots of steps on the way, but the views across Krabi more than make up for that and the temple at the top is quite special. Take lots of water and plenty of stops along...More

Not at the temple that I am aware of, and you certainly won't want to carry it to the top, the climb is hard! You're best bet is to check in at Ao Nang and get a taxi to the temple afterwards.

Not sure about the time you can start climbing, but early morning is definitely a good option to start the climb, so that you reach the top when there is not much of heat and sun. We completed our entire trek (climbing... More
