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.

This was a fun little excursion. There were dozens of monkeys at the base of the stairs that were friendly. It was free and open to the public which was nice. The stairs were super challenging and I'm in pretty decent shape. It was totally worth it for the satisfaction of reaching the top. The hike up took maybe 45 minutes and the hike down was so much easier and maybe took 15 minutes. The top had great views and was very nice. Highly recommend this stop.
You must try. There are 1,237 stairs. You might take about an hour to go up and half an hour to go down. There is no light during the night, so you might need to plan your trip carefully. The view on top is great and nice to try. KEEP GOING WALKING CLIMBING, YOU ARE SO CLOSE !!!
Worth walking 1600 steps if you want to see the whole krabi from the top and feel the good breeze after so much of exertions. After 300 steps you will feel like going back but please don’t do that take rest and walk 50 steps then take rest and then you will make it. Carry a lot of water bottles with you. There are a lot of toilets in the middle so there is nothing to worry about that. You will get water at the top also once you reach there. Then take rest and sit in peace for half and hour. It usually takes 2 hours to go up if you are taking good amount of rest. It will take half an hour getting down. Your legs will tremble a lot but there is nothing to worry. 🙃
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.
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!
