The tourist was with two others friends of the same nationality and could not get down again. Monks, nuns and locals were at the scene.

She was stretchered out but it took rescuers two hours to bring her down due to the problems posed by the staircase that is very steep at points, reported Thai Rath.

She felt better when at the bottom and was taken to Krabi hospital then was allowed back to her hotel.

The temple is a popular attraction in Krabi Noi sub-district.
