Two cliffs in one location. easy routes to very very hard stuff. one cliff is on the shade all day long, the other one is on the shade at 10 am. top quality rock. Cool accommodation right there.


Namphapayai Camp is right now the major rock climbing site in central Thailand. It includes two walls, river wall and bat cave wall, where more than 50 routes are bolted for the moment. The route number increase every month and the potential is about 130 more for what gone become a great concentration of very hard routes.

The rock has some cool concretions as usual in Thailand, but also some interesting steep walls or roofs where force and technique will be needed in order to get to the anchor in a good fashion way.

What makes this place the main climbing destination of the area is not only the rock and the routes but also the greenery place it is located with cool and cheap accommodation right at the bottom, the quick access from Bangkok, and the luxury to be out of the touristic mass flow.
