Hiking toursHiking up to the summit of Ban Tup Keak mountain. Simple 1.5 to 2 hour hike - at three locations steep wooden ladders must be overcome.
Worth it only at absolutely clear weather conditions. But then you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the islands of Krabi district.

KrabiIslamic dominated provincial capital.
Wat Tham Sua MonasteryThe 8 km north of Krabi located forest monastery (Tiger Cave Temple) is one of the most famous monasteries for Meditation theory in whole Thailand. Over stone stairs with 1272 steps we climb the 300 m high limestone mountain with a footprint of Buddha and at goog weather conditions we have a breathtaking 360°-Panoramic view. The climb is very strenuous, because the height of the stairs up to 50 cm is different. According to legend, there lived a young monk together with a tiger, who supported him in meditation. Alternatively, a short path leads into a jungle valley with giant trees and meditation caves for the monks. Here is located the last well-preserved lowland primeval forest in the Krabi region.
