Climb: Vietnam
6 day - climbing trip
Departing December 2019
 
The Plan

The plan for this trip is to explore the limestone crags of Cat Ba and Ha Long Bay in Vietnam.

Landing in Hanoi, we'll head straight to the local climbing gymto get to know each other and warm up for our trip.

From Hanoi, we will take the bus and ferry to the stunning Cat Ba Island. After a lunch of Vietnamese Pho we'll head out to the Hidden Valley and begin climbing.

With so many crags to choose from, we'll  climb crags based on the weather and what we want to achieve.  We'll also head out on a boat to the secluded MIT Beach to climb with a view of the beautiful Ha Long Bay.

After so much climbing, you can choose to either revisit a crag or take time off the wall to explore non-climbing activities, such as kayaking around the cliffs, or even trekking in the National Park.

After all the adventure, we'll head back to Hanoi in the early morning before flying back to Hong Kong ready to celebrate the New Year and a week of awesome climbing.

Minimum Fitness Requirements

We highly recommend that to fully enjoy the experience you undertake some form of physical and climbing training in your own time.

Our aim to be as inclusive as possible, so for participants that we feel do not have a sufficient base level of fitness we may suggest a training action plan to help.
