    Super interesting post! it had to be a really exciting adventure! I just want to know…is it very expensive? do you know (more or less) the price??


    • Teja says:

      Oh no, not at all expensive. Less than RM300. Check out the hyperlink for Nomad in the article. There are also other companies offering similar activities, but I’m quite happy with the one we went for.

    Looks like a perfect way to spend an adventurous weekend! Nice pictures too!

  4. I’ve done white water rafting just once and that too was a Class III. I’m yet to experience such awesome rapids. Hoping to go again. Your experience sounds amazing!

    Oh wow, seems like such a fun place! I would definitely panic haha. I tried it once in Turkey and it was fun, but since I’m scared of crazy waters I couldn’t enjoy as much as the rest of the team.

    • Teja says:

      Oh well. :) We can’t all like the same things right? I have my lines too – I probably won’t ever jump out of a plane, for example!

  6. Rafting is one of the activities we’d like to try most. It should be a very exciting thing to do with an expert of course. You have motivated us to try it soon :)

    What an adventure. I love caving, but I have also gone whitewater rafting too. I understand the importance of safety because we had and incident on a massive drop that we hit wrong and being prepared kept it from being a horrible experience. Looks like a beautiful place I would love to visit.

    • Teja says:

      Totally agree!

      We have awesome caves in Malaysia, many still being explored. The nearby Gua Tempurung has blackwater rafting and caving – I really probably should go back and do that.

    Overall you had a lot of fun. It’s good you didn’t cancel your plans even when many others cancelled. I can see the importance of proper preparation and safety measures when doing rafting. Although I am yet to try it myself. Nevertheless, your post is highly useful

    This was a lot of fun! I have not experienced white water rafting before. It was great that they have provided a safety briefing and proper gears. I would be also interested in asking questions from the guide. I would definitely want to try this someday. It will test my skills but it will be exciting.

    • Teja says:

      Definitely pick a good company. I’ve read of whitewater rafting elsewhere in the region where it’s not as emphasised. I mean, usually nothing bad happens, but the thing is, it’s terrible if something did, and the people in charge have not prepared.

    This was really an exhilarating adventure. We have not done whitewater rafting yet, but from reading this post, felt we must give it a try. I am sure you enjoyed it a lot. It is really good that the adventure company has taken pains to ensure all safety instructions are followed and proper training is given beforehand. This is so very vital in these kind of activities.
