Trekking to the viewpoint and lagoon

Call it rock climbing light

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

On our last visit, torrential rains kept us from climbing the steep trail that begins halfway along the walkway from Railay East to Phra Nang beach and leads to a viewpoint and lagoon, but it sure sounds like a good way to spend a few hours.

While it will be a piece of cake for rock climbers, the trail is quite steep -- bolted climbing ropes provide assistance for parts of it. After 20 minutes or so, you'll reach a viewpoint atop the lush plateau that forms the southernmost part of Railay.

From here, another steep trail leads down to a wide lagoon sheltered by cliffs. The emerald water flows under rock formations and into caves -- it's a great swimming spot, or so we've heard.
