**Sunflower Season is only from November till January. We still operate trips to Lopburi year round though.
Day 1, we will be heading to the crag – Khao Jin Lae, a limestone climbing wall, where we will spend the day rock climbing. We will demonstrate and practice outdoor techniques of crag climbing. Hand and foothold techniques will be demonstrated to show how to be a more efficient climber on natural wall. Access to the climbing site is via a Buddhist temple at the base of the mountain. This add to the uniqueness of this climbing spot.
After a day of climbing, we will head back to Lopburi for evening meal and to our accommodation at the local favorite spot of Noom’s Guesthouse.
Day 2 Another day of climbing with a couple of special stopovers. We will start the day with an organic breakfast and award-winning coffee at a Lopburi local favorite café. Crowned the 2nd runner up in National Thailand Barista Championship, you will be sure to be spoilt for choices when it comes to coffee and tea selection. Then we will head to the crag for our second day of our climbing adventure!
Day 2 climbing highlights. For those who are up to the challenge we will do a 35 meter level up climb, while being belayed from above. Followed by an abseil down to the base. We will also continue to do various climbs in other locations around the climbing wall.
Day 3, the last day, will be free and easy time for participants. Some recommended things to do include visiting the most famous Monkey Temple, Phra Prang Sam Yod, which is probably the biggest attraction that draws tourists to Lopburi. Just across the railway station, you may also wish to visit the Wat Phra Sri Ratana Mahatat, to admire the ruins , pagodas and Buddha statues that date back to the 12th century, to experience the tranquility that it has to offer amidst the old town of Lopburi.
At 12:00pm, transport pick up will be arranged to bring participants back to Bangkok. ETA in Bangkok at 4pm.
Participants are required to have a base level of physical fitness. This trip is primarily for beginners to rock climbing, but if you have the skill and are already versed in lead climbing and trad climbing, you are most welcome to join as there is definitely a variety of routes there for you to attempt and conquer!
