Overview

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.

The highlight of this is the victory feeling after the climb. It is well worth it. The view is ok and the Golden Buda is also something else. Get ready to put your cardio skills to the test...and watch out for the monkeys...they will steal...More

The 1237 steps up to the peak wasn't easy yet definitely worth it when you are able to see the scenery...Not recommended for elderly and children.The whole clinging up and down may take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

We went by taxi and it waited for us whilst we climbed the steps to the top. (2 hours). It was not very expensive.
