Went up to the lagoon and view point only to find out the national parks closed the way and there is a 1000 baht fine for going down. Apparently someone fell off and got injured while going down to the lagoon. Just a heads up....More

Make sure you get the whole way up, it is worth it! Just be careful when you climb, therefore take some good shoes with you! No water during daytime!

Located in the railay island the place is not that great to visit... it takes some efforts to visit the place and once there it may seem like a wasted effort..

The place isn't good and beautifful like others says. So difficult way to here, but view isn't good. Water isn't clear.

I did this challenging, vertical hike in March of 2018. At the time, there were some broken bamboo ladders with new bamboo ladders tied to them. Go carefully, and I wouldn't attempt this during the wet season, but the lagoon is a magical place.

A must for experienced climbers but extremely challenging for the less sure footed . If you are up to it then a must to experience but do be prepared . Certainly not for the very young or very old .

-Longtail Boat from various jettys in A N -Not really about time, more about weather. -Set aside 20mins-45mins -Footwear is crucial and the lookout point can get very crowded
