Thailand Mountain Hikes

Hang Nak mountain summit in Krabi, Thailand

This will be a list of mountain hikes in Thailand, and I’ll embed a Google map below with the hikes that I know about. If you know about any hikes up mountains or hills – leave a comment or zap me and email and I’ll add it to the list.

Southern Thailand

Krabi

Hang Nak (Hang Norn) Mountain – Tub Kaak, near Ao Nang in Krabi Province. This is a 3.7km hike up a mountain through dense forest, but the trail is well defined. There is an option for a waterfall, but it isn’t anything to see. The top of the mountain gives stunning views and straight down drops of 500 meters. Highly recommended.

Wat Tum Sua Buddhist Temple – Krabi, Thailand, near Krabi town. This is a set of steps up a mountain, leading to a great view of Krabi town, Ko Phi Phi, and Khao Phanom, the 1,400 meter high mountain in the same mountain chain. There are 1,257 steps (they added 20) and there is cold water at the top. I’ve seen 5 year olds climb it, and 80 year olds. Go slow, you can make it. More info ->

Ko Phi Phi Viewpoint – Ko Phi Phi, Krabi Province. Excellent view of the islands and surrounding ocean. Video link ->

Railay Beach Viewpoint – 10 minute boat ride from Ao Nang Beach, Krabi. Short, steep hike with a nice view.

Khao Phanom Mountain – Krabi province, district of Khao Phanom. Highest mountain in the area at 1,397m vertical elevation. There were landslides with the flooding in 2011, so the hiking has been postponed until they clear another way up the mountain. This is one I’m going to go on as soon as there is a route. Will report later. More information on Khao Phanom Bencha Mountain here.

  1. Not sure it would really be called a hike but I enjoyed the walk in Pha Taem National Park. I enjoyed the cliff paintings but really liked the view into Lao on the top of the cliff. It is in Ubon Rratchathani province.
