Prachuap Khiri Khan Travel Guide :

Chong Krachok Hill 

        Prachuap Khiri Khan is located south of Bangkok and it is around 281 kilometers from the capital. When the Ayutthaya Kingdom fell, the old town was abandoned but a new town was established in 1845 under the reign of King Rama IV. Today the province is extremely popular for its pristine beaches and high craggy mountains. Many people are not aware but the province has many historical sites that are worth exploring.


        Chong Krachok Hill literally means mirror tunnel mountain in Thai language. It is so named because of a natural orifice that is present near the peak of hill and this orifice allows sunlight to penetrate through and it seems as if the sky is reflected inside the mountain. On top of the hill Thammikaram Temple, also known as Wat Khao Chong Krachok, is located. Around 395 steps lead to this temple which enshrines the footprints of Lord Buddha. Chong Krachok Hill is famous for this temple, which is highly revered by the people.

        Chong Krachok Hill should be climbed either in the morning or late afternoon. Thammikaram Temple provides a scenic view of the north and south coasts. Be prepared to be awed by the beautiful panorama of Ao Prachuap Bay. You can even access the tunnel where the sunlight penetrates and it feels like the sky has come down to earth. You can access this tunnel through the temple.

        Chong Krachok Hill is also the favorite haunt of monkeys and you need to be slightly careful of them. They can be quite demanding.
