Thaiwand Wall is to your left as you face out towards the water at Railey Sunset Beach. At the end of the beach locate a trail that makes its way up towards the wall. There are a few alternate trails but all the trails that lead up will lead you to the wall. The furthest right trail leads to fixed ropes that lead up a steep section to the base of the wall. These fixed ropes end at a bamboo ladder.

In addition to the normal trails up to Thaiwand wall, the Wall can be acessed through a complex maze of dark tunnels and caves. This route is difficult to follow and requires a light source to negotiate through the caves. Within the caves you follow steep sections and bamboo ladders. The entrance to the pathway is accessed via the beach at Rayavadee Resort. The trail is difficult to find-I recommend that you ask a local guide.
