Half-Day Climbing Course – Ideal For New Climbers! 

Climbing Day Begins: 9:30 AM
Return to Adam’s Climbing School: 1:00 PM

This introduction to climbing class will usually take place at ‘Sleeping Wall‘ located 15 minutes from Vang Vieng on the banks of the beautiful Nam Song River. Sleeping Wall has over 31 established beginner to intermediate routes that will challenge any level of climber. The trek to the cliff “the approach” is the easiest in the area and can be managed in flip flops.

The course will begin with instruction on climbing equipment, climbing knots, belay devices and safe belaying techniques and procedures. You will be allowed to belay a lead climber (instructor) who will set up a top rope for you. You will begin with an easy warm-up climb and progress upwards in climbing grade typically completing 4 – 6 climbs of increasing difficulty before returning to Vang Vieng. Your climbing guide will offer instruction and guidance in hand and foot placement (Beta) as needed. This can be extremely helpful to a beginning climber just learning how to read the rock.

Full-Day Climbing Course – Perfect For Beginners!

Climbing Day Begins: 9:30 AM
Return to Adam’s Climbing School: 5:00 PM

This full-day introduction climbing class will usually take place at ‘Sleeping Wall/Secret Canyon‘ or ‘PhaDaeng‘ located 15 and 20 minutes, respectively from Vang Vieng. Sleeping Wall is located next to the Nam Song River and has over 31 established beginner/intermediate routes that will test any level of climber.

PhaDaeng is located east of town heading towards ‘Blue Lagoon‘. This approach is steep and has very sharp rocks, therefore it is better attempted with good hiking boots or trainers. This location receives more sunlight throughout the day which is great for photos but it makes sunscreen a necessity. This site offers a great view of the valley below and very long climbs, up to 25 meters. 15 Intermediate routes are currently available at this site.

The course will begin with instruction on top-rope climbing, belay & climbing techniques, equipment use and safety measures. You will begin with a warm-up climb and progress upwards in climbing grade over the course of the morning. Your climbing guide will offer guidance in hand and foot placement as required. This can help a beginner learn to read rock. 

After completing 4 to 6 climbs of increasing difficulty you will take a lunch break with a meal that is included in your tour price. After enjoying a nice meal, the afternoon will be filled with more climbing and additional practice with belay concepts.

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 72 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

  1. Really enjoyed my half day of climbing and thought it was good value for money. I learned about the basics of rope rope climbing/belaying from my instructor who spoke with good English. Our climb was thankfully in a nice shadowy area so it wasn’t too hot either.

  2. Had a great morning climbing – mixed ability group of four. Our instructor, Sien, spoke good English and was very clear in his instructions. He was a great instructor! Very good value for money- you would enjoy this activity as a beginner or experienced climber

  3. We had a really great day. Adam and his stuff are very experienced climbers and they took good care of us. They explained everything, ensured our safety and adjusted the climbs to one’s ability and experience. We couldn’t have wished for a better course.
