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.

My husband and I are in decent shape and we thought the climb would be easier but it was not! The stairs are steep and it was hot! It took us about 45 minutes to get to the top and about 30 minutes or less...More

Nothing interesting here, just a normal temple. But if really want to experience the view need to climb 1400 stairs which is quite dangerous.

Its a tough climb to the top, which takes about 50 mins with regular breaks. However the view at the top is worth it. The temple at the top is small and secondary to the view. Avoid if you have heart problems.

Like many other temples in Thailand, just with a huge climb to get to it. Make sure you take LOTS OF WATER, as it really is tiring and the steps are practically ladders at some points. The 'Tiger cave' itself is just a tourist trap,...More

No, there are two temple sites at the bottom, although watch out for the monkeys. One site is being constructed, the other one is quite small and not a patch on those in Bangkok

We went by taxi and it waited for us whilst we climbed the steps to the top. (2 hours). It was not very expensive.
