A stone path--beautiful colors--leads up to a nice view. We are in our 60s but did not find it at all difficult. There are many sites in the area, but fairly spread out, so we found a tuk tuk tour a good idea.

It was really worth the climb. I climbed up to the other 2 ruins sights that are on the hillside and they were all impressive, but this huge standing Buddha is really spectacular. Do beware of aggressive mosquitoes if you stand around in the woods...More
