Phuket is quite a hilly island, with its highest peak standing over 500 metres above the surface. One of the island’s most famous hills is Khao Rang Hill which is popular amongst tourists and trekkers alike. Khao Rang Hill is best known for the glorious view it offers of the city of Phuket, and provides a tranquil and picturesque setting in which to unwind and enjoy its stunning vistas.
This hill located in the north-western portion of Phuket is one of the most popular sites on the island. One can access the peak from either the Yaowarat Road or the Mau Luan Road, both of which provide a delightful workout if travelled on by foot. The path to the peak is quite shady as well, which contributes greatly to the trek to the top being one that is enjoyable as well. Along the Yaowarat route to the peak of Khao Rang one can make a side stop and visit Wat Khao Rang, a temple that is home to a large and magnificently built bronze Buddha statue of immense size and value. Upon arriving at the peak of this hill you can be assured that you will be greeted by amazing and awe-inspiring views. The panorama offers a glorious hawk-eye view of the city, along with views of the neighbouring islands and even the “Big Buddha” site. The peak of Khao Rang also has three splendid restaurants and a shaded area which is ideal for picnics and for enjoying the scenery. Spending a few hours at the top of Khao Rang truly is a remarkable and enjoyable experience, and therefore is a must-visit location to all who visit the island.
