Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea), Krabi Town

4.5
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Krabi Province
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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. Make Tiger Cave Temple (Wat Tham Suea) a centerpiece of your Krabi Town vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Krabi Town road trip planning app.

  • 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.
