INTRODUCTION
White water rafting as an adventure sport has gained in popularity in recent years. Other than the thrill and excitement of riding the roaring rapids, white water rafting is also an opportunity to see the forests and countryside.

Kiulu River
The Kiulu River is an hour and a half by road north of Kota Kinabalu. Take in the magnificent views of the
surrounding countryside from the hilltops as you drive to the town of Tamparuli.

With headwaters from Mt. Kinabalu, this river provides a Grade II to III experience, suitable for newcomers to this exciting sport. Deep pools punctuate rapids - indulge in body rafting or swimming. The river journey is between 1 to 1 ½ hours, depending on river-stage. Picnic by the riverside before returning to Kota Kinabalu.

Morning pick up from the hotel and transfer to Kiulu. A scenic drive into the foothills of the Crocker Range brings you to the start of an exciting journey.

Note: A briefing on safety precautions and rafting techniques is given by the instructor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Padas River

This river offers a more heart-pounding experience, one recommended for the more adventurous rafter. A bus ride of 1 ½ hours brings you to Beaufort in time to catch the rain to the take-off point. As the railway track lines the Padas River, this is an opportunity to size-up the raging rapids as the train chugs along. Food and dry clothes are left at the Rayoh Station while all participants travel on to Kg. Panggi, the take-off point. Here, our rafting instructors brief participants on safety procedures.

The boulder- strewn Padas Gorge, cutting through lowland rainforests, is a Grade III to IV. Thrills and spills are to be expected.


The rafting journey on the Padas River is between 1 to 2 hours, depending on the river-stage. Participants get out of the river at Rayoh. After a picnic lunch, return by train and bus to Kota Kinabalu.
