Why Rock Climbing, Thailand?
When you're scaling jungle cliffs and negotiating impossible overhangs above blue lagoons dotted with long-tail boats, you know what Living feels like.
The remote islands of Southern Thailand are a limestone wonderland. Many pitches begin straight from white sand beaches where it appears Mother Nature very kindly carved out a playground for climbing pilgrims, adrenaline-seekers and exotic flora admirers alike. If you happen to be all three, this is your Shangri-La.
The agile locals, that’s to say monkeys, gibbons and monitor lizards with whom you will share the ascent, make for intense pacemakers!
