Khao Chong Krachok is a mountain with temple on top in Prachuap Khiri Kan town. View from bridge over railway line (the white text เมืองสามอ่าว means "city of the three bays"):

Start of stairs:

Around and on the mountain large number of monkeys:

View from Khao Chong Krachok over Saranwithi bridge สะพานสราญวิถี to Khao Lom Muak:

Only after first visit did I learn that the mountain has a hole (on the northern end, easily visible on first picture), which required a repeat visit. The way up to the hole starts with stairs, then on rock, and to go above the hole there is a ladder. From there you can go to the temple side entrance.

Other towns in Thailand that have an easily accessible and climbable (stairs or even road up to top) mountain are
Chainat, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Nakon Sawan, Nan, Phuket, Uthai Thani.
