Rock Climbing Koh Tao

Rock Climbing Koh Tao

The Bunker Koh Tao is your awesome all-in-one rock climbing centre, hostel, café, and hang-out space (pun intended!). The bunker provides various guided climbing services along with rock climbing courses suitable for all skill levels. Beginners to seasoned rock monkeys are all welcome!

Rock climbing on Koh Tao is a fantastic experience that gets you out into nature to some amazing spots. There are impressive rock walls and epic viewpoints that most non-climbing visitors will never get to ever experience. 

What makes Koh Tao climbing special? The rocks here on Koh Tao are made of granite. Granite is an ideal choice for beginners in rock climbing courses and skill development, as it offers better traction compared to Limestone. You can find Limestone rocks on the mainland and the West Coast of Thailand. 

The Bunker Koh Tao offers a range of rock climbing courses suited to a range of climbing abilities:

Bouldering Basics: Half Day, 1900b

Best suited for novices, you don’t even need to strap on a harness or deal with ropes to go bouldering. This course is all about discovering the best approach to start and execute a short climb. You will also learn how to spot and support your climbing buddy. 

Top Rope Climbing Course: Half Day, 2600b

The most popular of The Bunker’s Koh Tao climbing courses. The beginner top rope class is excellent for those who want to try climbing with ropes and a harness. You’ll learn how to use all of the essential climbing and safety equipment under the guidance of an experienced instructor. 

Intermediate Lead Climbing Course: 2 Half Days, 5800b

Already completed your top rope climbing course on Koh Tao or the equivalent elsewhere? Or feel you’ve reached your top rope climbing limit and are ready for the next challenge? it’s time to gain a bit more independence and learn how to lead a climb! 

Guided Koh Tao Climbing Trips

If you’ve already taken a climbing course or two and just want to get out and explore with a trusted spotter, belay buddy, or leader, The Bunker Koh Tao can organize half-day trips with one of their professional guides. 

Guided Bouldering Trip: Half Day, 1600b

Completed your introductory bouldering basics climbing course on Koh Tao or elsewhere and looking to get out for a bit more practice? hire a guide, take on some trickier boulder problems, and build your confidence knowing you have a professional spotter to guide and support you. 

Top Rope Guided Trip: Half Day, 2600b

If you possess experience but haven’t mastered lead climbing yet, there’s no requirement to undergo an additional course before venturing out to enjoy the granite climbing experience. One of the Bunker’s Koh Tao climbing guides can accompany you to set up the climbs and guide you as you practice. 

Lead Climbing Guide: Half Day, 1900b

If you’ve already got some experience lead climbing and are comfortable tackling an outdoor 6a+ or 6b (French grade), you can hire an experienced Koh Tao climbing guide to belay you as you set up each route and hone your skills on some of our more challenging routes. 

Bouldering and Sport Climbing Guide: Full Day, 3600b for 1 person, 6500b for 2 people

If you have limited time but desire a taste of everything, then this trip is ideal for you! You’ll get to boulder, top rope climb, and lead climb – all on the same day. Please note you need to be a comfortable top rope and lead climber already (comfortable with French grade 6a+ or 6b) to join. 

The Bunker features an indoor climbing wall, a café, and hostel accommodations as part of its amenities. It’s not just a great place to learn. It’s one of the best places to hang out, meet fellow climbers, and make new belay buddies. Pop down and share your favourite Koh Tao climbing routes and stories.
