***NEWS SEPTEMBER 2013***

DEAR CLIMBERS, DEAR NOT-YET-CLIMBERS,

 

on the October 1st we reopen our climbing resort in Laos, now in the 3rd season! Most of the shacks which had burned down on Silvester’s eve 2012/13 are rebuilt now! What is it that you have to know if you plan like to come on visit of Green Climbers Home?

 

- We recommend to reserve by email (tanja@greenclimbershome.com) bungalow, dorm or tent in advance. Especially during the high season from November to March please contact us quite early (better do not visit us between Christmas and New Year because it will be very busy in this time).

 

- In the low season October, April and May it’s a bit warmer sometimes, but nevertheless it’s nice to climb. Furthermore it’s more quiet and accommodation is even cheaper then (price list is here)

 

- We have nearly 150 climbing routes already (all in walking distance) from the grade 4 up to open projects. Hence, for those people who already had worked off extensively, there are new routes to climb. - Whoever has experience in bolting is invited to set up new lines around the camp. You just have to bring bolts, plates and quicklinks and please contact Uli for more details (uli@greenclimbershome.com).

 

- The new climbing guide book of Laos is still under construction and will be available in October at our camp and in the offices of Green Discovery Laos.

 

- More information concerning location, prices, accommodation, gear rental, climbing courses ... on www.greenclimbershome.com

 

If you have any more questions please contact us.

We are looking forward to your visit!

 

Many greetings from Tanja & Uli

*** UPDATE January 2013***

GREEN CLIMBERS HOME BURNED DOWN!

 

Dear friends, dear climbing partners,

Many of you may know already: on New Year’s Eve our beloved climbing camp „Green Climbers Home“ burned down. No one of our guests or our personnel got injured!


But the camp is almost completely destroyed. Only left are the clothes we were wearing and what we could quickly grab when fleeing the flames...

THE LAOS CLIMBING

GUIDEBOOK

2nd edition is coming soon!

 

Guidebook excerpt

 

 

 

 

The Rock climbing campin Thakhek/Laos
The climbing area near Thakhek called "Pha Tam Kam" is hidden in a small valley which ends in the backside of the beautiful Xiengliab Cave, 12 km outside from Thakhek.

 

It was Volker and Isabelle Schöffl who led a group of 17 people to develop the climbing spot in 2010. They told us (that´s Tanja & Uli) about this climbing area while we were preparing our worldtrip.

 

When we came to this beautiful spot for rock climbing in November 2010 we decided to stay and open a climbers camp. Fortunately we came in contact with Green Discovery Laos, Laos' pioneer in Adventure Travel and Ecotourism. Together we started the project in 2011.

 

 


 

The rock climbing in Thakhek is awesome:
You find wonderful routes with tufas, sintering and face climbing. The gigantic roof with routes ranging from 6b+ to around 8a is unique.

So far there is a total of 170 routes ranging from 4 to around 8b. Whether advanced climbers or beginners, you will have a lot of challenge and amusement! 'Green Climbers Home' is placed directly next to the climbing sectors. And for sure we will make use of the endless potential in and around the climbing area for more and more routes! For the climbing beginners and advanced we offer climbing classes. For those who travel without climbing gear we can rent a harness, climbing shoes, a rope, quickdraws and a belay device.
