What To Expect

Imagine climbing down to the depths of a large hole, not really knowing what you will find down below. Sounds scary? Don't fear. You'll be in the safe hands of the experienced climbing instructors of Chiang Mai Rock Climbing Adventure on this one day introductory course to caving. You will learn all about cave exploration, view remarkable features of caves that few get to see, and do all this at the awe-inspiring Crazy Horse Buttress, one of the world's most sought-after climbing spots. Staying true to the spirit of adventure, you will also stop for a lunch break within the cavern, where you can enjoy a delicious Thai meal with your headlamp as your source of light, and a bat or two above you (don't worry, they won't bite!). The package also includes transportation from the CMRCA center to Crazy Horse Buttress, and back, plus optional hotel transfers for added convenience.

    It was my best trip in Thailand this time. I never try this kind of trip. The instructor is very nice and professional . Actually I'm a person who really scared of high place,but I don't feel any scared on this trip. It's very safe and interesting .

    Super safe, great fun and a really special experience. Completely organized from pick up in Chiang Mai, lunch, safety instructions, and a lot of jokes during the whole day till return to the hotel. Even saw a monkey mother carrying and showing the little baby. Although the lunch wasn't as great as in Chiang Mai, the whole day was absolutely great.

    Nothing bad to say about this. We went there as a couple, we met up with some other couples and we were 6 people. The 2 instructors were amazing. Laughing with us, funny, joking a lot and very proffesional. It feels super safe and organized. It was one of the best attractions we did in chiang mai.

    Had a great day caving with the guides from CMRCA, professional, fun, and surprisingly informative! Always felt 100% safe which is pretty important when you are in the middle of a cave system in the dark. These guys also organised a home stay for me and the flight of the gibbon too, both were great and definitely worth experiencing

    Loved it and staff were well trained and prepared in terms of safety Also extremely charming I would only recommend that they have halal food options for lunch as well

    Feeling happy from the bottom of the heart, it's quite tired after playing, but it's a unique experience. Wear trousers when you go and avoid bruises. The two Thai brothers are cute and come slowly to tease. It's so happy.

    Great! 20 meters of the cave, easy to go difficult. For the first time there is such an experience, the two coaches with the two of us, meticulous patience, to the hole completely dark, can only rely on the headlamps, and so a bit like the United States and the combination of big blown light.
