  • Kho Chong Kra Chok was given the nickname "Monkey Mountain", and that's no lie. If you're looking for culture or religion, you should avoid this place. You'll encounter 3 things: (1) a partially destr...  more »
  • We did the climb around 6 pm. There were nobody, just us and way too many monkeys. I like monkeys but monkeys here can be quite intimidating. We had no food so they did not try to snatch anything from...  more »

  • Incredible view from the top. We went up around 7.30 AM, it's not hot yet, there were no tourists and the monkeys were still calm and friendly. We passed many on the stairs without problems but also left them alone and didn't look them in the eyes. The monkeys down at the street were challenging us more and got aggressive. Do not look the monkeys in the eyes, don't bring food, plastic bags or water bottles. Take a backpack with your stuff and wear your camera with a strap and you won't have any problems.
  • It was a incredible view but be aware of monkeys. Don't wear something that has picture of food on your clothes. I just guessed because they were attached me two times. I wasn't do something bad to them. I went there with 3 more people and after 4 pm. Monkey is everywhere. For now on, monkey is my terror!!!
  • Fantastic views at the top. Extremely hot climb if you do it in the middle of the day. Lots of monkeys, not really a problem, but kind of stinky in some places.
  • Was pretty good with exception to the aggressive monkeys until they disfigured the mountain with a massive steel and cement sign. I wonder who came up with that brilliant idea?
  • Nice climbing to the hill, many monkeys around, be careful. Nice views to the bay.
