  • Nice view but you have to have something on the climb to the top was the effort (lots of stairs), maybe you could visit this with something "fresher" again.

  • there are 2 statues, one on the ground floor, another bigger statue is 750 steps above. not easy to climb up as the stairs is quite steep but is sheltered by trees.  more »
  • This Buddha is quite large. But there have to climb many steps to get to the big Buddha, is an exhausting, elders is not recommended to attempt to climb the steps. But can admire peacocks under the mountain.

  • On the side road of going to bangkok from korat. Drive by photo requires emergency stop at a pit stop area with a small view. Otherwise it requires walking up a huge stairway.
  • Quite demanding but the view is worth it. 618 steps of stairs from the bottom to the top if you follow the right side. You will be able to see some peacocks, peahens, some squirrel too.
  • Good place to explore. There is no elevator you have to walk.
  • You need to figure out how you're going to catch your return bus before heading here. We were told by the bus station to just "Flag down a bus on the highway"...which sounded sketchy. So I asked a merchant at the temple how to get the bus and she said the same thing. Still the wrong info. Some people said there is a bus terminal in town, some say you can get a bus to stop at the farmer's market right across the street from the end of the road that leads to the statue. But we were just lucky to hitch a ride on a VIP bus that stopped at the farmer's market. The statue itself is epic. You should definitely visit.
  • Good exercise ,worthy for the view.

Where to stay in Pak Chong

You'll find a few good accommodations within Pak Chong and in the surrounding areas, including on the way to the nearby famed Khao Yai National Park. The semi-luxury hotels, guesthouses, and resorts in Pak Chong represent good value for the money, and generally position you in town or no farther than a couple miles' walking distance. Get in there early, as lodgings fill up on weekends due to popularity. If you're staying on a weekday, make sure to negotiate prices, though be aware that this will often not be possible on busy weekends.
