Our goal is to take you to places and engage in experiences that are truly unique. Our Cat Ba climbing adventure is unlike any experience you’ll find in Ha Long Bay and Vietnam.
The day begins with a twenty minute motorbike ride first along the beautiful coast line and then into the lush green hills of Cat Ba. Soon you’ll find yourself in the remote and breath taking Butterfly Valley. As butterflies flutter around your head, we’ll have a short walk through the farm lands passing friendly water buffalo and cattle. But enough of the scenic mumbo jumbo… we’re here to climb the massive rock face that overlooks the valley!
You may choose from a variety of beginner through advanced routes. Your professional guides will then set up a top-rope system so that you may ascend the rock safely and worry free. Climb as high as you feel comfortable and don’t forget to look down! That’s right, there’s no feeling as rewarding as viewing the stunning valley from a position you created on your own. Spend the day climbing, rappelling, drinking tea and chatting with the locals (who still can’t understand why we climb rocks), exploring the surrounding terrain… remember the possibilities are endless with Halong Adventures. We can give you a full agenda to keep you busy for the day, suggest an array of activities to keep you wanting more, or let you introduce new ideas to make our experience together as unique as can be. This is your adventure.
This excursion is suitable for all ages with or without experience rock climbing and/or athletic ability.
