Definitely worth the climb, however 1200 something steps is a lot more than you first imagine! Wear trainers and bring a bottle of water, there is drinking water tap once you reach the top. Amazing views.

Although not a history buff I was impressed by the age and incredible detail of these temples, over 1000 years old. There is quite a lot of walking and steps so you need to be quite fit. It is not wheelchair friendly. As it gets...More

Climbing the tiger cave temple is a once in a lifetime experience you should never miss. 1000 plus steps and the steps are steep. It's a test of your determination.

My sister and her husband did this 1 1/2 years before, and told us we had to do it, but they wouldn't come with us. All the reviews say 1237 steps, and it is brutal. I kept thinking "only 1200 steps... that is nothing". Well,...More

We wore shorts to climb and had sarongs in our backpack (for both of us) to put on at the temple. Legs should be covered. Workout pants should be okay.

There was no sign forbid any drones, but maybe a matter of respect - although it would be very cool to do drone shots from there ^^
