One look at Piniapat Hill photos in the Instagram gallery will remind you of the movie ‘The Sound of Music’. And yes, Piniapat hill looks very much alive with the grassy slopes decorated with colourful flourishing flowers.

Piniapat carries the meaning of ‘divided into four’. The hill is owned by 4 landowners, hence the name Piniapat Hill. Because of its charming landscape and sea view, the hill becomes a much-photographed destination as well as for wedding photo venue. The panorama view of the place is extra good looking during sunrise and sunset hours when the ray of light hits the right spot.

There are two alternative routes that visitor could consider taking – the easy hike and another one with an added challenge. However in general the hike is doable for children and adult.

A minimal admission fee is applicable and self-drive with aided assistance from google maps is recommended to get to the starting point.
