If you are an avid explorer of unusual places, you can certainly think of visiting the Wat Ban Tham. It is basically a Buddhist temple. This is not only a sacred place that pulls devotees and tourists, but it is a wonder as well. The temple is located on a mountain top and you must be physically and mentally prepared to reach the top taking almost 1600 stairs. You can locate many small and big statues of Buddha here along with statues of other characters that are known to be significant in regard to Buddhism. You will be taking some stairs through a dragon statue also. The place is great for photography. Don’t forget to carry plenty of water during this trip.

Wat Ban Tham Reviews & Ratings
Very beautiful and when you get to the top, which you can ride the tram for a small fee, you have a fantastic view of the whole area. The Kwai river, rice fields and the mountains are in full view!! I recommend.
What an experience, we only found out about this fantastic place from another review posted on trip advisor. I would certainly recommend visiting early in the morning as it could get quite crowded later in the day and pose some problems crossing on the steps. The paintings on the inside of the main dragon are amazing. Total number of steps the the temple at the top are about 700. We'll worth the trip.
The Dragon is stunning and if you follow the stairs further up the hill, you can find a small cave lit in colourful lights. Go further up to top and you will have the best view over the river and Kanchanaburi.
Scary steep stairs but fun to walk up the dragon. Countryside was also nice to see driving to it.
A hilltop cave where a big image of sitting is housed inside that lots of worshippers from local and elsewhere are paying respect , It is about 1,000 steps something to the cave itself and if you are fit enough ,why not climb up another 800 step to the top where another 2 shrines were erected. The view from the top is magnific even in summer time. Make sure you have suitable shoes for the climbing ;trainers are highly reccommended '
