Valentines wedding on the rock

Every year on Valentines day couples profess their love with weddings that take place on the beautiful limestone cliffs of Phranang beach; well known for its white sand and vibrant turquoise ocean, it’s also an especially romantic place for Thai people, where wishes for blessed love are hopefully heard and granted by the spirit of the Phranang Princess.

The cave at Phranang beach is dedicated to the princess of Phranang, as one story tells it, this is where she waited until her dying day for her true love, who on his way to marry her died at sea. Many Thai people believe this place to be lucky and sacred, a place where the spirit of the Princess still resides, and if prayers and offerings are bestowed upon her she will grant your wish; most commonly people send out a wish for love, marriage and fertility, and a very common offerings is a carved phallic symbol, as they are also believed to be lucky; I have heard a few stories around this too, one is that the fishermen wear small ones to keep them safe at sea and ward off sea spirits that would pull them under. These stories are Thai folklore, which is meaningful in Thai culture, so it’s best to treat with respect, and enjoy the beauty of the area!

If you are interested in getting married on the rock next Valentines Day, your wedding ceremony will be fully paid for, as well as your hotel. Please feel free to get in touch if you want more details on how you can be one of the the next couples to profess their love in this romantic way.

 

The Railay Climbing Club works with the Railay Tourism Club, the Tourism Authority of Thailand,  and the Government to put this on, and it’s truly a spectacular event! A special mention to all the climbing guides from the different companies who worked together for many days to set the stage for this, and who safely got everyone on the rock for their special day!

Deep Water Solo Ban

Unfortunately the deep water solo trip is currently not running, as the nature park has banned this activity in Thailand. We do hope that in the future this ban will be lifted, the Railay Climbing Club has been in discussion with them regarding what it would take to reopen, however currently we have no updated information to provide.

If you are interested in sport climbing, we will be happy to have you climb with us. Sport climbing is the really famous thing to do in Krabi, and the locations in Railay are beautiful. There are many routes for the beginner – advanced climber, with single-pitch, and multi-pitch routes available for you to enjoy!

Climbing Best Rainy Day Activity In Krabi

Raining, no problem! We are lucky to have a great climbing location on the beach that is sheltered, making climbing a great rainy day activity. Pranang beach is completely sheltered from the rain, due to the overhanging rock, and there are some great routes for the beginner to advanced climber. Not only is this a great place for climbing with it’s spectacular views, but the stunning white sand beach and amazing scenery makes it a great place to spend the day, and in the high season you can even buy a cooked lunch and drinks off the longtail boats.
