Cast off into Lan Ha Bay, an area of Ha Long Bay that is lightly traveled, clean, and astounding in pure beauty. After cruising through a maze of karst towers you will arrive at the secluded and uninhabited Moody’s Island beach with sea water caressing two shorelines beneath a massive limestone cliff. You're certified climbing guides will outfit you with safe and comfortable UIAA standard climbing harnesses and rock climbing gear. After brief instruction your guides will set up top-rope systems on a variety of different routes so that you may ascend the rock face safely and worry free. With the coaching of our experienced guides, climb as high as you’d like overlooking the emerald waters of Ha Long Bay and enjoy a spectacular view unlike any other.
Spend the morning challenging yourself on different routes, which will no doubt leave you hungry for more…..or at least hungry for food! We'll set you up a full spread of lunch while everyone can chat about their unique experiences and feelings while climbing.
After lunch, you’ll de-board at the amazing Hai Pai Island Beach, a gorgeous strip of secluded beach framed by two spectacular limestone cliffs. Some may want to kayak through the bay into hidden lagoons; others may want to continue climbing on the new cliffs of Hai Pai Beach. Or swimming and lounging may suit some….no worries…this is island life! No forced itinerary will allow you to choose your own adventure. Take it as it comes and our guides will be there to help make it happen!
This excursion is designed for any age with or without athletic ability and no necessary prior experience rock climbing.
