What to Expect

Leave your fear of heights at home and come along for an amazing adventure you’ll never forget!


We’ll show you a whole new world full of adrenaline and stunning natural beauty. Rock climbing is a unique way to experience nature and challenge your personal limits. The feeling you get when you’re climbing up a steep rock is absolutely fantastic and can’t be compared to anything else. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked for life!


This 4-hour introductory class is perfect for first-time and intermediate climbers. It’s a safe and fun way to try rock climbing for the first time or get tips and tricks to improve your technique.



Explore Railay Beach


Our awesome tour takes place in Railay Beach which is one of the world’s most famous rock climbing destinations. In the climbing community, it’s even known as a climber’s paradise. In other words, you’re in for an absolute treat!


The beach is located on a small peninsula between Krabi and Ao Nang. The fact that it’s only accessible by boat makes the area a bit of a hidden gem. People come here to enjoy the laid-back vibe and relax all day long on the fantastic beaches. That’s all very nice, but we’re here to get some nice adrenaline pumping!


The steep limestone cliffs on the beach are just waiting to be explored by us, so we’ll get straight down to business.  



Try rock climbing in paradise


Over the next hours, your highly experienced guide will teach you everything you need to know to enjoy rock climbing. At Real Rocks Railay, we’re very passionate about our sport, and we only work with the best instructors in the field. That’s why we can guarantee your climbing experience with us will be nothing less than fantastic!


Each tour group will have a maximum of four people per instructor. This means that you’ll have plenty of time to fully understand your instructor’s comments and tips as you go. Rock climbing is about enjoying the moment, and we don’t want to rush through this awesome experience.


During the climbing class, you’ll get a basic introduction to top rope sport climbing, simple belay, and basic top rope movements. You’ll also learn holding, climbing, and rappel techniques. On top of that, you’ll get practical experience with how to use the equipment and, of course, learn how to ensure that basic outdoor climbing safety measures are met.


Your lovely guide will take you on several climbing routes so that you can practice your technique in different settings. The views from each spot are world-class, and you’ll be blown away by the natural beauty in this part of Thailand. It won’t take you long to realize why this is such a perfect destination for rock climbers!
