Thailand has been well known to climbers for many years thanks to its stunning rock and tropical paradise locations. There are lots of wonderful climbing areas spread throughout Railay Beach and Tonsai Beach which are separated by a 5-minute walk.

The landscape in this area is seriously impressive, there are loads of spectacular walls rising straight up from the beach, dripping with massive tufas and high-quality rock. On the peninsular alone there are over 700 routes, with grades from 4a to 8c+. As climbing areas go it is fairly unique, being more popular for general holidaymakers than for climbing. Although the beach can be busy, the crags generally aren’t. It's normal to have a couple of other pairs at a crag, but it's also possible to find quiet spots you’ll have to yourself.




The climbing is of a very high standard, with lots of classic routes to choose from at any level. The karst limestone here is very special, there are loads of stalactites, tufa blobs, hourglass pockets, spikes, giant jugs, and undercuts.

Thailand has a tropical climate, with hot and humid weather remaining reasonably consistent throughout the year. The main concern for climbers is visiting in the dry season, which runs from November until early March. April is usually the hottest month and May to October is the rainy season. Some sites at .Railays rocks provide an overhang that will protect the climbing routes from getting wet.We climb all year around.


Note that DWS has been banned since a few years back by The National Park and nobody has it today

Rock climbing is an exhilarating, challenging, healthy, and fun activity unlike any other, and an alternative activity to make your holiday more valuable. When approached correctly, it is also nowhere near as dangerous as many people think. One of the great pleasures of the sport is that Rock Climbing cannot always be rigidly structured; every rock face and every climber is different and you learn something new every time you put your feet on the rock.
