Now if your looking to get a view of Krabi from the best viewpoint the province has to offer this is your go-to activity. The hike takes about 1.5-2 hours (one way) so it’s not for the faint of heart but the view is certainly worth the trip. The trail is inside of a national park so be careful of using your drone (See our article on Drone Restrictions in Thailand). You will need to sign in with the national park rangers when you come to the trail head, the rangers start work at 8am and finish around 6pm.
If your really looking for a Krabi adventure, then wake up at around 3am and drive to the trailhead and start hiking by 4pm, you’ll be at the top of the mountain by 5:30-5:45 and will get to witness the sun rising from behind the tall karsts right in front of the viewpoint. If you want to mark this on your adventure list in Krabi, then be sure you come prepared with a strong flash light (or two) and sturdy hiking books.
Keep your eyes on the look out at the bottom of this 3.7 kilometer hike for a fresh running stream of water which collects in large pools at the trailhead. It’s the perfect place to sit and relax and freshen up after a nice long hike.
