Things to Know before you Visit:
It is best to schedule your trip to the Tiger Cave Temple either early in the morning, or some time in the evening. Days can get pretty hot in Krabi and climbing 1200+ stairs under an unforgiving sun can be potentially dangerous.
There are little to no provisions to purchase water or snacks at the temple. It is advisable to prepare accordingly.
The temple is home to a number of monkeys that have grown used to the presence of humans. Beware of them and maintain your distance. It is also recommended to leave behind valuables like jewelry and sunglasses as there is a good chance that a monkey will try to snatch them.
