Someone really should clean this place up. It's a real dump in places but it's worth it for some exercise, good views and the monkeys (which aren't any hassle as long as you don't carry food).

Monkeys are fun to watch - keep your distance though. Good viewpoint. Not much else of interest but good hike in from town.

No entrance fee and definitely worth the trip. Take heed of other advice here by all means, but don't let it put you off going - go to the top temple, great views. Also go down to the Chinese temple, it is very... More
