4.5km from Historical Park HQ. 15min, 300m hike up a rocky hill. Amazing sunrise place west of the Historical Park.

The Wat is acutaly quiet close to the historical garden. You can make it easy by bicycle. From the entrance to the hill side its only few hundred meters. Walking up the stone path is easy, but I would be careful when it is wet. Could be very slippery. The Buddha statue is quite big though and you get a nice view as well. Its a place you wanna visit when you have seen the most of Sukhothai. If you miss it, not a big loss to be honest.…

A bit away from the main park, but worth the ride. There is a 300m footpath up to the wat, don't attempt this if it's been raining. The statue is in fair condition, and the views over Sukhothai are good.
