khiri-khan-forward

Dominating the skyline of the humble provincial capital of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand is this mountaintop temple.  Visible from almost anywhere in the whole town, a series of wooden stairs lead forward the way up the rocky outcrop to it peak.  Oftentimes it is dominated more by monkeys and soi dogs than by the monks or tourists traversing the stairs.

The name of the mountain translates to Mirror Tunnel Mountain because of a hole in the hill through which you can see the sky.  Two times here, and I still have never noticed this feature.

Hi all, my name is Ben. I’m a native Michigander with a passion for human culture and new places, and more than that, new experiences. I have degrees in archaeology and writing, pursuing a career in the latter. However, I never quite lost that fascination for archaeological theory. For the past 9 years, I’ve been living and travelling in Asia, documenting ancient sites and the peoples who built them, and then adapting them into practical archaeological travel information at PathsUnwritten.com.
