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 the coastline.

A long flight of stairs 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 12km away.

Don’t bring food, drink or plastic bags with you as the monkeys will assume they're prizes worth having.
