Arm yourself with a bottle of cold water and some sun screen and set out an adventure climbing rocks in Koh Samui. Physical exertion is a great way to beat the calories you gain when you are on vacation and a fun way to do that is to do some rock climbing in Koh Samui. Koh Samui is a tropical strip in the South of Thailand that is home to a set of beautiful islands, sandy beaches and rocky hills with an incredible view of the South East ocean.

The climbing experience in Thailand is unique because of the lime stone rock that is found on most of the islands. Even in Koh Samui it is the lime rock which is a major feature and attraction for tourists. The rocks are around 200m high, which means they are moderate heights but what makes it unique is the fact that most of the lime stone rocks are in the coastal areas. Koh Samui has been recognised as a hot spot for rock climbing in recent times because of the geographical variation in the region. Each of the islands in the area has a different natural landscape. Some of the lime stone rocks are surrounded by tropical jungles and others are in deserted beach islands.

The best part about the climb is the fact that no matter where one is in Koh Samui one can always see a spectacular view of the blue waters. The ocean in the area is not too deep so the waters are an amazing bluish sea green. This makes it one of the most remarkable sights for rocks climbing. If you are interested in rock climbing or want to try it out, contact one of the local adventure guides. Depending on the level of intensity and your skills the guide will choose the location. If you are an expert you can always ask for the location you want to climb in. There are several other fun activities you can indulge in when you visit this part of the world. Look for a Koh Samui resort for your accommodation so that you won’t have to travel too far to get to this place. You can always narrow down the search and look for a Chaweng hotel since that is closest to the mountain area. Check out Anantara Lawana Koh Samui which is conveniently located and has comfortable rooms which include some fabulous service.
