About Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi
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.

Tiger Cave Temple, Krabi Reviews
Great spot, quite a tough climb up steep steps but that's the point. Bring water, you can refill at the top. I was at the top during a thunderstorm so low visibility and raining, I still loved it! On a clear day the views would be spectacular. When you return to the bottom be sure to visit Wonderland and the Tiger Cave before leaving. Beware the monkeys, they look amazing but will try to grab any bags, food or gadgets you have.
If you are in good shape then you definitely should climb the steps to the temple on the top of the mountain. For sure it is worth a try. In the tiger temple close to the parking you may get a blessing from the monks Besides the is a cave with another buddha and some small monks houses to be seen nearby
this temple is famous for the steep stairs which lead to the top of a mountain but there are many great buildings in temple complex. the climb to the top of the karst mountain is really tough due to the steep staircases with uneven steps and usual high temperatures. there are two toilets on the way up but no water until you reach the top so make sure to take enough water to keep you hydrated and rest when you need to. the climb is worth it for the view and the sense of achievement when you make it to the summit. coming back down is much easier and quicker than the ascent
Over 1200 steps to the top, not too bad, we finished reached the top in about 30 minutes. Not too crowded when we visited in the afternoon around 230pm. There's railings on the side of the stairs for assistance. There are also monkeys around the temple grounds and the lower part of the stairs. Watch your bags and belongings! The view at the top is worth it! Don't forget that this is a temple so appropriate clothing must be worn, if not there's clothing rentals available.
Just made it to the top after 1,273 steps. You definitely need to bring water. The view is spectacular.
