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.

It takes 30-40 minutes to climb up. Although it's challenging it's well worth the effort. The view is splendid. We went in the afternoon, started climbing around 3:30 pm which was... read more

It takes 30-40 minutes to climb up. Although it's challenging it's well worth the effort. The view is splendid. We went in the afternoon, started climbing around 3:30 pm which was a good choice, since it wasn't too hot, but you will still be soaking wet. :-) Be careful to climb down before it gets dark since there are no...

It is hard to climb up there, but it worths the effort, mostly for the nice views cause up there is full of anthems mixed with buds, going up beware of the monkeys do not show plastic bags or food and of course do not feed them, it is not a bad idea to bring some water, and keep calm... More

North of Krabbi, near the airport. Staying in Ao Nang we decided to visit then go on to Krabbi night market. We caught a bus ( pick-up truck with two rows of benches) at the bus stop on the main Ao Nang strip and were taken to Tiger Cave for 150bht. The entrance is free and its 1260 steps up... More

It is quite the hike to get to the top but well worth it, it was beautiful 360 degree view of mountains and the town below, and the temple itself was beautiful! We saw monkeys on the way back down (be careful with your food and belongings!). It took us about 30-40 minutes to get through the 1200+ stairs. It's... More

Made the trip because it was raining and nothing much else to do. Half an hour drive from Ao Nang. The temple area was okay, monkeys were entertaining! Took snacks from your hand, but they were not shy and easily stole from you if you had something they wanted! Beware if you have children, saw them jumping on a child... More

We played with monkeys. We walked around. We climbed 1,237 steps to the top! It was amazing and one of those moments where you say, "Wow, I did it!"

This is a grueling 1200 stair hike to the top of a mountain to see the Tilger temple. The temple itself is pretty cool, but the experience of getting there and the views are the real attraction. The first 200 steps you have to fend off the monkeys who want to steal anything they can off your backpack. They are... More

We did this climb after hiking Tab Kak a day earlier so we were a bit on the exhausted side but none the less it was still one of the most fantastic experiences of my life and definitely of our trip to Thailand. It is a very rewarding opportunity and the view from the top is incredibly scenic.

Sweating a bit and enjoying a 360 degree gorgeous view before heading to the beach, what else? Honestly after my first steps I started regretting my choice but it was just because my entire body was warming up. It was a beautiful 1247 steps ascension (with some very small steps and other very high so be patient, it worth it).... More
