Deep Water Soloing in Thailand

 

Thailand is among the most preferred travel destinations of backpackers! Most people flock here in order to enjoy its pristine beaches -Phuket for instance. For some on the other hand, they visit Thailand to try the sport called Deep Water Soloing (DWS).

 

DWS also referred to as psicobloc, “is a form of solo rock climbing, practiced on sea cliffs at high tide (originally, but can also be performed on reservoirs, rivers, swimming pools, etc.), that relies solely upon the presence of water at the base of a climb to protect against injury from falling.” according to Wikipedia. You can try the said sport in the picturesque Rai Leh peninsula. Visit www.wanderingtrader.com for more recommended travel destinations in Southeast Asia.

 

Do note that this sport belongs to the extreme category and should only be performed if you have the aptitude for it.
