Viewpoints and attractions of Koh Larn
The Buddha Footprint Lookout. The way up the 250 steps is especially in the summer, so from May to August very exhausting. As I climbed the 250 steps to the lookout point it was particularly hot in April 2016. It was in the shade around 40 degrees when I mastered the ascent with a loud breath and a bottle of water in 5 minutes. The view over the steep stairs and the sea is priceless.
