Rock climbing around Krabi is a popular activity. Climbers travel from all around the world to climb the high karsts of this region.
The cliffs on the Railay Peninsular have some of the best known climbing routes and the views from the top are worth the climb up to see.
There are established climbing schools in Ao Nang and all around Railay and Tonsai beach. The schools have experienced guides and instructors and they have all the gear available to take you to new heights on these amazing rock faces.
If you have never climbed before but would like to try it you can go on an introductory day with an experienced instructor.
You will be supplied with climbing shoes and a harness and shown the basics including; knots, belaying, climbing and rappelling.
You will be amazed at what you can achieve and by the beautiful views you get looking across the beaches and bays from high on a cliff.
More advanced courses are available if you have some experience already or if you ‘get hooked’ while you are here.
The courses will range in duration from one day to three days, or more.
The schools also cater for experienced climbers who want to try out new routes and certain categories of climbs. Experienced guides can take you to the climbs that will challenge you and make sure you have a satisfying climbing experience in Krabi.
