Brave the 1,237 steps leading up to Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea), famed for its tiger paw prints, tall Buddha statues, and extensive views of the surrounding landscape. Take your time ascending the stairs--they aren't a route to be rushed. The panorama at the summit deserves plenty of attention (and picture-taking), as you take in the reverential, contemplative atmosphere of this secluded spot. Be careful on your way up, and watch out for the monkeys that live there: they don't take kindly to being teased and can become aggressive if separated from their young.

甲米镇的老虎庙，听说里面僧人养着只老虎虽然我们没看见老虎，阴错阳差下探险了tiger cave茂密的森林，脚下踩着泥泞坎坷的山路，还被猴子“监视”着，心慌慌时遇到一僧人为我们指路真是一次不同寻常的体验 走出虎穴，我继续登山顶，每当停下脚步大喘时，都会被下山的外国游客激励告诉你山顶的风景有多么的迷人 我看着有抱着婴儿的妇人、也有年迈又胖的外国老夫妇，当然也有身强力壮的年轻人，我想我也是可以的。 山顶... more »The tiger temple in Krabi town, heard that the monks inside the tiger although we did not see the tiger, yin and yang under the yang to explore the tiger cave dense forest, foot on the muddy mountain road, but also by the monkey "watch", panic when encountered a monk for us to show the way is really an unusual experience out of the tiger cave, I continue to climb the mountain top Whenever i stop to gasp, you will be inspired by the foreign tourists down the hill to tell you how charming the scenery of the mountaintop I look at there are women holding babies, there are elderly and fat old foreign couples, of course, there are strong young people, I think I can. The top of the mountain is Buddha and Jinding, overlooking the panoramic view of Krabi. Monkeys were encountered when they went down the hill, but they were quiet and did not steal and rob.
Beautiful place. You need minimum 0,5l water to climb on this temple. On the top you could drink free water and stock up your empty bottle. The views are amazing. I recommend this place 😊
Very beautiful place, I highly recommend to visiting. Also be ready to climb the stairs. It is better to wear suitable shoes. It will take long but it is worth it. One of the best views in my life. My tactic was not to hurry up and climb slowly but surely. Also don't forget to take water.
