Description

There are currently 5 climbing areas within 2-3 hours of Bangkok; Saraburi province has Nam Pha Pa Yai (NPPY) and Muaklek Cliff. Khao Chin Lae is in Lopburi province. Khao Yoi and Khao Iko are in Petchaburi province.  NPPY has the most number of sport routes from 5s to 8b; all within walking distance from onsite accommodation. Khao Chin Lae offers many multipitch routes to the top of an actual summit surrounded by sunflower fields (during the right season). Muaklek probably has the best quality hard single pitches, and due to its position, it is by far the coolest crag and usually very pleasant to climb at even on the hottest summer day. In petchaburi, there are two crags; Khao Yoi is the first bolted crag in central Thailand and is currently being redevelop with Titanium glue-in bolts. Khao Iko has a handful of routes inside of nice cave. As of now, the only guidebook is published by Thailand Mountain Sports Club and you can purchase it on their website.
