The Stories We Could Tell

Khao Takiab

A short jaunt outside Khao Tao is Khao Takiab – home of a few more temples and some great beachside eateries. We spent the day hiking pretty much straight up a mountain to see the hidden temple. Hundreds of years ago, monks built a temple in a sink hole at the mountain top. It is almost as if the temple is situated in a cave without a roof. The strenuous hike was well worth the climb as the temple was truly awe-inspiring. The way the sun hit the structure made it look as it was being lit from the heavens. This stop was one of the highlights of our trip. It was Thanksgiving back in the states, and we were so happy to be able to spend our day in the presence of such beauty. We capped the holiday off with some local Thai street food – noodles with duck (close enough to turkey right?). Happy belated Thanksgiving!
