Being one of Thailand’s most recently established climbing areas, I recommend Lampang — a hidden gem to globetrotting climbers looking for an authentic experience. Near mountainous Northern Thailand’s third largest city of the same name, and about an hour-and-a-half drive from Chiang Mai, this vertical limestone hideaway is a unique and unparalleled climbing destination.

There are currently around 50+ routes here and I  have put up a handful of the, myself, and while I most often guide large groups of students, Lampang is a haven for regular climbers looking to crush quality routes. I recommend that adventurous and curious climbers stay for a week, and take in all of the rich culture that the city of Lampang has to offer. Lampang is a top-notch destination for those looking to get away from the crowds and experience a climbing paradise-in-the-making.

Please note, the Lampang climbing area is on military property, and all climbers must register with the CMRCA and obtain a climber’s entrance pass before going to the crag. Access is only permitted on days when the CMRCA certified guides are there and climbers must register every time they plan to visit.
