Multipitch Clinic (Intermediate Level)
We will be climbing the crag (accessible via a temple) at Khao Jin Lae, which is a limestone peak towering at 206 metres high. Compared to other more popular climbing spots in Thailand such as Krabi, Lopburi is definitely a hidden gem, as this region is still undiscovered for its amazing climbs. It has a variety of climbs, ranging from sport climbing to trad climbing, single pitch to multi pitch climbs, and with all grades to challenge everyone!
The best reward that one can reap from climbing here? Definitely the amazing aerial view of the sunflower field and the Lopburi town from the a height of 206 metres!
If you are looking to challenge yourself in terms of endurance, and wants to experience multipitch climbing where we scale the 206 metres peak in a team, this is the perfect trip for you!

Lopburi is the capital city of the Lopburi province in Central Thailand. It is situated about 150 kilometres north of Bangkok. With a mere two hours drive from Bangkok, you will be able to escape the bustling busy city of Bangkok, and get to Lopburi, also known as Thailand’s “Monkey City”. It is no surprise how it got its name from, as monkeys can be seen loitering on the streets, which definitely adds on a unique flavor to this ancient historic city in Thailand. Lopburi is also well-known for its picturesque sunflower fields, where beautiful sunflowers bloom in the months of November to January.
