Activity Information :
10 km White water rafting has it all. Its broken into 3 sections. The first section is a great warm-up where you learn skills practicing with the guides and getting used to the boat. This section has one class III and is probably the most beautiful section of the river with the encroaching jungle offering lots of shade. The middle section is action-packed with rapids and is probably the best Whitewater in Thailand. Most of this section is class III and IV rapids. The 3rd section lets up in the beginning giving you some time to relax before entering a great class III rapid leading into a short continuous section of rapids that goes almost all the way to the take out where our camp is. We have top-of-the-line equipment expert trained guides to make sure you have a safe adventure. We have towels for you when you finish and shower facilities that you can use before heading home. Make sure to bring a 2nd set of dry clothes so you can ride home dry.
For children under 15 or as a choice for adults feeling apprehensive about the Whitewater we may ask them to go around the difficult section with the van. There is a road along this entire section. As you complete the 1st you would jump out of the boat and into the van and take a short trip downstream where you can join the rest of the group as they finish the most difficult section. You would miss about 2 Km of river. This section of river changes dramatically with the amount of water in the river. Let us know if you can’t swim or have very young children as we have a fun solution for you.
