Even if you have no desire to become Spiderman, the seasonal property will appeal to any traveller who appreciates stunning natural scenery and a chilled out atmosphere. Best of all, there’s a range of accommodation that will suit different budgets and tastes.

Green Climbers Home is located 12 km from Tha Khaek on Route 12, which is along the same route as “cave alley” and the first day of the Tha Khaek motorbike loop. From humble beginnings, the property now has two accommodation camps that are open from October until May, shutting down during rainy season.

Both camps are nestled at the foot of towering karst and have similar facilities: restaurant/bar/lounge, rustic bungalows and shared bathroom facilities with hot shower. Camp 2, located closest to the entrance on Road 12, is the latest addition. Camp 1 is further in, a minute drive down the dirt track located by the river—yes, you can swim.

The main difference is that the bungalows here have hammocks and private bathrooms, which are large and quite well done by bungalow standards. Whether you choose ensuite bathroom or shared bathroom, expect simple, solidly built, clean bungalows with wood floor boards and bamboo thatch walls, an electric outlet and fan. A mosquito net, mirror and towels round out the deal.

Camp 1 also has a dorm. They are basic, functional affairs with fan, mosquito nets and small locker for valuables. The truly frugal can stay in a tent, pad and bedding provided. The shared bathrooms are divided by gender but if you’re skittish about privacy, note that the showers are not fully private.

Green Climbers Home is about alternating between chilling out or being active scaling rock walls. When you get bored of either, break out the board games, try the slackline or hang out at “the beach” at the river, where it’s possible to swim in a cave. Tha Falang swimming hole is also walking distance from the resort.

The downside is that there are no motorbike rentals, only bicycle available. That means for exploring the many caves and swimming holes along Route 12 (a highly recommended day trip), or to seamlessly continue onto the Tha Khaek motorbike loop from Green Climbers Home, you’ll have to arrive with a rental from town.

Those on a tight budget have to factor in extra costs such as transportation, meals at the resort, and if you really must, the cost of 3G; there is no WiFi. Note: 3G signal can only be found at Camp 2. Thankfully, the joint appears to be well organised and helpful, so there’s a shared tuk tuk order sheet. With luck there are others you can share with (100,000 kip per tuk tuk, up to four people, add 50,000 kip for transfers after hours).

There are many conveniences with staying in Tha Khaek. Green Climbers Home is a retreat, making a worthy case for getting out of town or prolonging your Tha Khaek loop for a few days, or even a few weeks.
