About
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.

We visited this place on a very hot day. So the 1260 steps up the hill grave been very challenging. The view from the temple was great. Nothing for kids because the stairs are quite height.

I found it a little difficult at the beginning, but once the lungs cleared it was not as bad.
For me it took 40 mins to get up and about 20 to get down.
What could I recommend.

Take lots of breaks.
Wear decent shoes.
Bring at least a litre of water.
Start early before it gets hot.

and

Enjoy the beautiful view from top

Amazing!, i was pretty nervous about doing this as dont like heights but love a challenge, we arrived at 8am when they opened which i recommend as I cant imagine doing it in the mid day heat. We were the first people up and the views were astounding. The steps are super steep and relentless but you feel so happy when you arrive at the top and finish also!. We took a taxi from our hotel at Shell Sea Hotel near Ao Nang, you can get a bus i understand or hire a scooter.

Absolutely satisfied. We did it with children and it takes about 45 min to the top. View is magnificent! Bring more water than you expected with you :)

Nice place! If you wanna go upstairs be prepared, it’s kind of hard but absolutely worth it. The view on top it’s spectacular. It is cheaper if you just rent a bike and go there than paying for a tour.

The 360° view at the top was amazing. Glad it was cloudy with not much sun burning me. Bring water, take your time, take a break and catch your breath often. I am a 61 year old male, and glad I did it.

Incredible views from the top. It’s a bit of a long way to get to the top with over a 1000 steps but it’s definitely worth the effort. 360 degree views back over Krabi and the countryside.

I have given this place 3*s as an 'average' rating because I don't have any information on what it is really like.

My taxi driver spoke to the entrance desk when I got here and it turns out the place is closed. So as a visitor you aren't able to go anywhere on site. Covid related no doubt. The lady manning the entrance desk wasn't sure when the place will be open again.

So, I'd exercise caution before coming here at the moment.

I think this place is very exciting. because there are hundreds of steps Even going up the stairs is quite tiring. But it is considered to be exercising in the body. Plus the temple itself is beautiful. It's worth the sweat.

At first we thought we could just drive to the top of this 550 meter elevation mountain, but then we discovered that we had to WALK to the top. We took 2 new friends with us and began the ascent of 1,260 cement steps. The tall mountain stairways seemed endless and we took many rests before reaching the top. The steps were also very dangerous at some points with very high risers and small areas for your feet. There were also some monkeys at one point and one of them took my water bottle! It took us nearly 2 hours to get to the top. Once we arrived at the top, the views were spectacular! The temple itself was not so great and there were many antennae that took away much of the beauty.
