Tiger Cave Temple - Review
The cave where once Tigers used to live is now the temple of Kuan Yin- the Goddess of Compassion. Locals and tourists come here to pray to the huge statue that looks down from a Chinese-style pagoda constructed here. Keeping the Buddhist ideology alive, human skeletons are kept to remind visitors of the impermanence of life.
The Golden stupa with a platform that overlooks Krabi is the highlight of the place. The whole place is loved for its natural surroundings and is a good way to explore the Buddhist culture in Thailand while you get away form the hustle-bustle of the city life.
The place also has a Vipassana center where you can see monks meditate in the forest. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Krabi itinerary 3 days.

Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi Reviews
1237 steps to climb with varying heights at few points. Take breaks while climbing. View from top is beautiful and serene. Carry some food and enjoy it at the topic. After wards take off shoes and enter the small temple. Buddha and Ganesha statues on top. Come back down and further ahead to female Buddha statue and to the left of it there is wonderland trail. A few steps then into the woods passing through caves and massive prehistoric trees.
Wonderful place to visit, monkeys abound on the way through, it's not advised to feed them, the Buddhist temples are spectacular with the option to light candles or meditate in the grounds. If you decide to climb to the first level, there is a track through the lush jungle where the tigers cave is and quite a number of interesting locations. Our guide was very informative but it would be a good idea to read up on the Temples when you are there. There are further steps up to see the Buddha which would be very exhausting but the views are spectacular. Would certainly recommend the visit. You don't need to climb to the top to appreciate this location.
An amazing place! The cave temple at the base of the mountain is worth going for alone, but if you're feeling up for a challenge, there's a 1300 step climb (very steep in parts) to the top of the mountain to see a big Buddha and the most amazing views of the surrounding areas. There's no admission fees, but do your bit and donate to help the upkeep and expansion of this amazing temple. You'll be blessed!
I've been here 4 times. It's very challenging. Well for me it was. Stunning view from the top. There's toilets on site and a convenience store at the temple. Also there are a few shops just outside the temple where you can grab food and drinks. Women will be asked to cover up if wearing skimpy clothing. Watch out for the monkeys. Highly recommend to take a drink with you when you go up. It can get very hot and sweaty. But it will be worth it. Definitely worth a visit if you're ever in Krabi. Highly recommend.
This is a must visit place! It's an vast area with pagoda (which is under reconstruction now), monk houses and the thing tourists like the most - outlook on top of the hill. I think it took almost 1300 steps of literally climbing above but it definitely worth it! When you get to the top you'll see a breathtaking view to every direction. Beware of monkeys, they steal everything - drinks, ice cream, whatever
