Had to make a 2nd trip because the first trip was mid afternoon and the heat was unbearable. Best to start the hike up at 8 or 9 a.m. The view is beautiful on top, the monkeys are fun and 1250 steps feels like an...More

Nice Temple, just now they are building inside. Take long pants and sleeves clothes. Tiger cave is nice, full of monks and nans. Other caves is nothing special, just small cave in mountai and dirty forest. 1200+ steps hike worth that. It is not easy...More

Well I don't care what others say, this was a real challenge. The steps were at times very steep and very big. Take it slowly, let the lactic flow away and move on, stop repeat all the way to the top. Don't give up and...More

309 Meters.... 1260 steps, almost always at a steep incline or decline. There honestly isn’t much to say for the average traveler on this one, with except to say that it requires allot of physical endurance. Make sure to wear good (hiking) shoes, take plenty...More
