People going on about the stairs... not sure if I walked up a different set, but honestly if you are of average fitness and have some water, you'll be fine...I was expecting way worse after reading reviews on here😂.

It's very nice! The view as well. Around the temple is a tiny market where you can get something to eat and drink.

We mistaken visited this way on a Sunday, and I thought it would be busy , but although a lot of people it was very ordily and calm, typical Thai, going to pray to their Budda, a great experience and beautiful view from the mountains.
