Krabi province on the west coast of Southern Thailand is home to some of the world’s most spectacular coastlines featuring a karst landscape with craggy limestone hills, jagged cliffs, steep vertical sided limestone pillars and rock faces and unusual rock formations overlooking the emerald waters of the Andaman Sea, dotted with oddly-shaped verdant tropical islands basking in the sun.
With Krabi offering some 600 rock-climbing routes, this present numerous challenges for individuals of various levels of skills and experience. The towering cliffs of Railay Beach and Ton Sai Beach attract rock climbers from all over the world and have steadily gained fame as one of the premier rock-climbing destinations.
The 2012 Krabi Rock and Fire International Contest scheduled to be held during April 16 – 17 will feature two key contest categories namely a lead climbing marathon and speed climbing. The fire contest provides a spectacular added attraction.
In addition to its natural beauty, Krabi also offers an excellent service infrastructure thereby making it a popular destination for island, beach and adventure holidays.
