Top The Best Places to Go Rock Climbing in Thailand – Paradise for the climbers

Thailand is a land that offers so much to those who opt to visit the place and rock climbing is just one of them. Whether you are a beginner at rock-climbing or an expert at it, this country has some of the best rock-climbing experiences to offer.



This is one of the most popular places to visit in Thailand. The island is famed for its unspoiled beaches of white sand and clear blue waters. There is so much to experience in Krabi and one of the best Ao Nang things to do would be indulging in a rock-climbing experience. If you are not sure about the exact spots for rock climbing here, then inquire from the front desk of hotels like Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort. The limestone formations jutting out of the waters here are approached by many climbers who aim to conquer these giants for grand views of the little island and the ocean.


Chiang Mai

This city is one of the most relaxing places in Thailand and has a very laid-back vibe with an old school look to the place. There are several things to do here as well, but if you do happen to visit this northern Thai city, you simply cannot leave without trying the authentic food and a session of rock climbing. There is a rock formation in Chiang Mai called Crazy Horse. It is quite an interesting climb and has many caves to explore as well.


Koh Phi Phi

There are six islands which form Koh Phi Phi and all of them attract all sorts of tourists. This is the island for parties and many tourists seeking splendid nightlife make their way here. Most people get on the ferry to watch the sparkling fireworks in the evening. But that's not all, it is also an island popular with divers as the waters promise a glimpse at a shark or two on a dive session. Rock climbing came into the scene in the 1980s and became an activity in demand during the 1990s. The spot for climbing here is Tonsai Tower and it is ideal for beginners. The site has 30 routes and offers a wonderful view once you reach the top.


Koh Tao

This is an island that is made up of boulders and is one of the best rock-climbing destinations in Thailand. Some even call it the boulder heaven as there are a few amazing formations that are well hidden among the greens of the farthest forests on the island. For those who climb these formations and reach the very summit, the best views await. The island is not only popular for climbing, but for its diving sites as well.


Koh Yao Noi

When it comes to things to do, this island unlike the others does not offer much to travellers, but when it comes to climbing, the island offers nothing but the best! However, some of the most amazing routes have been closed off by the national park here because they are quite risky.
