  • Ignore the monkeys on the way to the top hill. 396 steps to reach the top hill. Beautiful sea view & city view at the top. There is a small temple on the top as well, Gold in colour.  more »
  • Wow very beautiful site, fantastic views, but had to sweat out first, 396, also had to skip many of the monkeys, do not bring the food over here because it would be attacked in the same monkey! There is no entrance fee

  • Nice view and lots of monkeys! If you haven't seen any monkeys in Thailand yet, this is the place to go! Just be wary and don't get too close!  more »

  • good view, beware of monkey. don't buy food from people who try to guide you up the stair way. they are the root of monkey over population and aggressiveness problem. donate to the temple instead.
  • Did it once and got it off the bucket list. Monkey's are a real nuisance and the stench of their urine and feces is everywhere. Nice views from the top at sunset. Too many people giving the monkey's food and they are now quite aggressive. Stow all loose items. One girl had her baseball cap stolen. Be very careful about using a mobile phone to take photos. Don't sit on the concrete walls with your back to the ocean as the monkeys will sneak up and grab any loose items. Stay off the wall and leave about a 1 meter separation.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful templesite located at the Krachok mountain. A lot of longtailed macaques here, so do not bring food. Beautiful views if You manage to climb all the steps up.
  • 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!!!
