This Wat is set a little way out of the main park but only a few minutes by bicycle. There is a pretty steep climb up a rocky staircase to the Wat which boasts a splendid standing Buddha and great views. Worth the exertion.

A tuk tuk will cost about 200 baht round trip, plus an extra 100baht entry fee. The Buddha is on a hill, with a stone trail leading up. Most should be able to make the walk. I have a neurological problem with no depth perception,...More

Can genuinely say being here for sunrise is truly magical. The whole of Sukhothai historical park and the surrounding countryside are well worth a visit, sunrise here is the sublime icing on a very decent cake

The temple is quite far from Sukhothai and is located on a high hill making it both difficult to visit and difficult to access once you reach it. There are no steps and the temple can only be reached by climbing a steep stone path....More

A nice activity after the bustling historic park. A few kilometres up the road and a 300m walk up a medium hill to a really nice viewpoint with a tall Buddha.

It is far from the Royal city. You may arrive by bike or tuk-tuk (tuk-tuk is perhaps, the best option as it could be very hot and humid. You have to buy a 100 Baht ticket. You have to climb 300 meters. It is not...More

I hiked up for about 300 meters from the road, on a stone path, to the hill top and began to see a spectacular Buddha standing up there. From there, you can look down and see beautiful rice fields and villages. Luckily, I went up...More

When the sun is shining it is hot to walk, but the view and the buddha is very nice. There were also not many tourists.
