Deep Water Soloing in Krabi, Thailand

Deep water soloing in Krabi, Thailand is a rigorous and adventurous sporting activity that attracts many tourists. Some describe it as the purest form of mountain climbing, because you are completely free of any climbing gear. This sport began in the United Kingdom in the late 1980s, but didn’t become really popular until the late 1990s.

Deep water soloing in Krabi, Thailand involves climbing up a mountain without ropes or equipment, except for a good pair of climbing shoes. Once you reach the height you wish, you jump feet first into the beautiful emerald waters of the Andaman Sea. (Guys are cautioned to keep their legs close together when jumping.)
