Rock Climbing

Our rating:

Tha Khaek’s famed rock walls are begging to be climbed and courses are available for those who want to learn how.

Rock climbing routes only began to be established in the Laos in 2002 and the scene is slowly but surely developing. Tha Khaek’s climbing potential was “discovered” by a group of German climbers in 2010 and Green Climbers Home began the following year. Today, it’s a German-owned resort and climbing school for all levels, open from October to May.

Pricing works on a sliding scale, depending on the number of participants. Word has spread about this place and it is popular throughout the climbing season, so there’s a good chance you’ll have others in your group to lower the costs. Sample price: 1-day beginner’s climbing, price ranges from 700,000 kip for one person, 260,000 kip based on a group of five, including all equipment, not including food or accommodation.

Other courses cover top rope, belay technique and leading. For advanced climbers, they publish a Laos climbing guidebook and you shouldn’t have a problem finding a climbing buddy at the resort. Visit the website for detailed information.

There are now more than 500 routes found in Tha Khaek and in Laos’ other climbing hub Vang Vieng. Unlike Green Climbers Home, which shuts down during rainy season (June to September), there are some routes in Vang Vieng available year round.

Green Climbers Home is located on Road 12, 12 kilometres from the main highway Route 13. Cash payment only.
