Guide to Khao Chong Krajok in Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand
The mountain of Khao Chong Krajok is the place to drink in the stunning Prachuap coastline that lays curling elegantly into the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. Visitors must climb to its peak via a flight of stairs, from which they can enjoy shifting views of the lush province’s interior, it’s beautiful beach and the town of Prachuap itself. Along the way they are sure to be delighted, and certainly amused, by the mountain’s resident troop of playful monkeys.
Top Things to See and Do at Khao Chong Krajok
Those who do make the ascent will find it well worth it. Aside from the unparalleled perspective the peak offers, Khao Chong Krajok is the home to a mountaintop monastery founded by Rama VI and an elegant golden pagoda. Visitors can admire the traditional architecture and styling at the same time as the view, which stretches all the way to Thailand’s border with Burma.
The unbroken panorama is also notably uninterrupted by crowds of visitors, the province of Prachuap Khiri Kan being relatively free of tourists. This makes Khao Chong Krajok, located in the North of Prachuap city, especially tranquil and relaxing – all the better for enjoying the view!
