Climbing in Lopburi, Thailand 

There are over 60 routes, single and some multi pitch climbing, just 2-hours away from Bangkok. You can do this trip over the weekend from Singapore.

Khao Jeen Lair is a limestone peak located 14km east north east of Lopburi town, 160km north of Bangkok. There are five areas called “Temple Area – Left Side”, “Temple Area – Right Side”, “Secret Garden Area – Left Side”, “Secret Garden Area – Right Side”, and Easter Island areas.

How to get there ?

Khao Jeen Lair is accessed via a temple but not that easy to reach. We got lost the first time. I recommand you to get a phone with a GPS !

Then once at the temple you have to hope it is open ! Therefore watch out the days your going there if it is not a public holiday in Thailand.

To the cliff you actually have to walk through the temple and up to the main face. The monks have been extremely nice to us climbers. The only request they have made is that you have to sign a registration form and give a little something for the entrance fees.

Climbing there

We did the multi-pitch on our sides. 3 groups of 2, doing Waltz for a lovely life and Corcovado. We started around 9 am.

Waltz for a lovely life is a really nice multi pitch of 6 pitchs, 5c/6a all along well maintain and nice area to belay. The first anchor for the relay is not very easy to find you have to do a travers and then you can set up the relay. For the other pitchs no issue finding the anchors.

Corcavado, I didnt do it, but our friend said it was also a very nice route, more engage but still very feasible.

The whole repelling is done on Corcavado. Some cactus and trees on the way done might create difficulties with the rope !
