Learn Rock Climbing in Chiangrai Thailand

There are three 'tiers' of climbing routes on the hill. Each is from 50 to 60 feet high, much of it vertical

 

Thailand rock climbing can be enjoyed in many areas around the country and there are many rock climbing companies in Thailand offering you the chance to enjoy this thrilling activity.  As you’d expect from a country as geographically exciting and as adrenalin fuelled as Thailand, there is plenty of rock climbing to be found. The Thailand rock climbing scene has developed over the years and now has a large following.  Whether you are a complete beginner, a keen amateur or a professional, you will find amazing climbing opportunities for rock climbing in Thailand. And there really is nothing quite like pausing to gaze out at the breathtaking views once you have reached the top of your climb- especially knowing that getting down is easier than getting up!

There are some world renowned locations for Thailand rock climbing. Krabi is famous for its limestone cliffs rising spectacularly out of the ocean and has a flourishing climbing scene. Rock climbing in Railay in particular is out of this world, a climbing mecca, and Ton Sai is also phenomenal. And when you fancy a bit of relaxation, then take advantage of the gorgeous white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters that surround both places. Amazing.

A slightly different climbing adventure might see you take to the mountains for some rock climbing in Chang Mai, northern Thailand. Here you can spend a few days or weeks trekking through awesome jungle, climbing various cliffs and crags, and just living for the climbing!  A quieter alternative to Chiang Mai is Chiang Rai, where more rock climbing areas are popping up.  Popular island destinations for climbing include Koh Tao, where giant granite rocks make for amazing climbing and bouldering experiences, alternatively if you are short of time then there are numerous rock climbing walls located in Bangkok.

Wherever you decide to go rock climbing in Thailand, your experience will be absolutely unique, and will be something to take away from your holiday forever.

In Chiangrai Boomerang is a new adventure park in Chiang Rai open from February 1st 2011 featuring rock climbing, fixed traverse lines, zip lines, frisbee golf, as well as a 2 hour treks nearby and an outdoor restaurant onsite. The adventure park is called Boomerang, because of the shape of the property.

It sits alongside a paved road just 2 Km NW of the tourist town of Chiang Rai in northern most Thailand. Boomerang is a 15 minute stroll to the large Mae Kok river, where there are other climbing crags (public). The rock is limestone karst, and there are dozens of great rock climbing areas in Chiang Rai of all skill levels, including some overhangs at our site.

We also have two side by side zip lines stretching to a length of 170 meters, coming down from the cliff face, to the meadow far below.

Plus, Boomerang offers northern Thailand’s first & only frisbee golf course – 9 holes (actually baskets on poles). The course features large shady trees, some fairways, some rocky terrain. The longest hole is 80 meters. Planning to have the world’s first boomerang golf course, using three sided ‘trimerands’ (on order from HK).

Trained staff and top quality equipment on site. Safety is our #1 concern, though exhilaration is a close second.

There are three ‘tiers’ of rock climbing routes on the hill. Each is from 50 to 60 feet high, much of it vertical. Obviously, most climbing activity will be at the first tier, because it’s most accessible from the ground level. Just the first tier has over twenty five distinct routes, so the total number of routes at the Boomerang crag approaches 100, particularly if one adds the climbing routes to the west of the main staging area, including the ‘big wall’ which soars roughly 90 meters straight up
