Khao Chong Krajok

Khao Chong Krajok information

At the northern end of town, Khao Chong Krajok (‘Mirror Tunnel Mountain’, so named for the mountain-side hole that seemingly reflects the sky) provides a beloved Prachuap tradition: climbing to the temple at the top, dodging ill-behaved monkeys and enjoying a cascading view of a curlicue coastline.

A long flight of stairs soiled by the partly wild monkeys leads to a mountaintop temple established by Rama VI. From here there are perfect views of the town and the bay and even the border with Myanmar, just 11km away. Don’t bring food, drink or plastic bags with you as the monkeys will assume it is a prize worth having.
