We’re talking about rock climbing in Thailand, of course! Where other than in Southern Thailand can your carabiner catch the inquisitive eye of a monkey, gibbon or monitor lizard? And where else would 10 days’ guided climbing and 12 nights’ accommodation at half board still be classed as ‘affordable’ for South Africans?

As exotic climbs go, this is the place to be. And there’s a reason rock climbers look the way they do: they’re masters of bodyweight work. Remember, the main muscles used in climbing are your lats, which means the wing-shaped ‘V’ is what it’s all about.

Rock & Sun offers three fully guided tours of what many consider to be the most beautiful and exciting climbing destination in the world. Designed to give you a good flavor of what South East Asia has to offer, your climbing guide Trevor Massiah has been climbing and developing routes in Thailand since the early 90s. He knows the area really well and will pick the crags to suit your experience levels and to avoid the crowds, giving you the best possible climbing experience.

Many climbs begin straight from golden sandy beaches or directly out of the ocean requiring a traditional long tail boat or kayak approach. 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.
