Southern Thailand is a must visit destination for any sport climber with a sense of adventure and an interest in experiencing other cultures. During your trip you will be waking up to the sound of the waves or of the howling Brown Horn-bill. Maybe you’ll have a dip in the ocean at sunrise prior to a leisurely breakfast, followed by a spot of sun lounging or kayaking and a stroll down the beach for an afternoon of climbing. These are just some of the things that make Thailand a very special climbing destination. The climbing in the most part is super convenient meaning that you can get a full day of climbing in and still leave plenty of time for the abundance of other things that you may want to enjoy during your climbing holiday. Such as snorkelling, kayaking, Thai cooking lessons, scuba diving, a relaxing massage or having a taste of the entertaining nightlife.
Thailand Climbing Paradise
Thailand is a climbing paradise consisting of classic three dimensional climbing on pocketed limestone walls, towers and caves often dripping in tufas and flow-stone formations. Just as you think you are running out of options and see no way to get higher on the route, there is usually something behind you. You might be able to stand on a tufa behind you. Or have a complete sit down rest in a cave half way up a route. Often bridging or stemming is the best way to gain height. Overall, the climbing in Thailand is mind-blowing, and can ask for creative solutions.
Many climbs begin straight from golden sandy beaches or directly out of the ocean requiring a traditional long tail boat or kayak approach. The jungle crags could have you rubbing shoulders with monkeys, gibbons or monitor lizards and it is not uncommon to spot dolphins, sea eagles, kingfishers, turtles or flying fish while gazing down from belay ledges on multi pitch routes or during boat trips between the mainland, islands and peninsulas.
