9 Important Questions On White Water Rafting Sungai Selangor and Slim River

9 Important Questions On White Water Rafting Sungai Selangor and Slim River1. When is the best time to go rafting?

As we do not experience any cold weather in Malaysia, white-water rafting (especially on Sungai Slim and Sungai Selangor) is available year round. Anytime is a good time to go rafting. The water’s average temperature is 23-27ºC. Although we may experience the normal wet and dry seasons, they will only affect the river characteristics such as producing bigger rapids when there is rain and making rafting more technical with lesser water. Here, these is always water (and rapids) all year round. However, should the river become dangerous to raft during the wet season, you will be informed beforehand of any trip cancellation or postponement.

2. Who can go whitewater rafting?

We have taken from 10 year olds to 70 year olds on our rafting trip. As long as you are in a reasonably good physical condition, white-water rafting will be an exciting outdoor recreation. Non-swimmers are welcomed on Sungai Slim or Sungai Selangor, provided they are comfortable with the possibility that they might “take a swim”, that is, fall out of the raft. In this case their PFD would keep them afloat until they are pulled back into the raft. Medical Condition People with a history of heart trouble, asthma, epilepsy, allergy to bee stings and insect bites, or any other potentially serious medical condition should consult their doctor before coming on a rafting trip. Pregnancy For safety and liability reasons, we advise pregnant women not to participate in any of our activities. Children Children from 10 years old can come rafting with their parent’s permission. They can start with Sungai Slim. Depending on the confidence level of the child (assesed by our Trip Leader) he/she may be allowed to go through the stronger rapids if he/she is comfortable doing so, otherwise, we will walk them along the river bank to bypass the stronger rapids (with the help of a guide of course).

3. Which river is best for us?

Two of the most popular rivers to raft which are just a few hours away form Kuala Lumpur are Sungai Selangor and Sungai Slim. Sungai Slim is a Grade 3 river and Sungai Selangor a Grade 4 river. If you have not rafted before, we highly recommend Sungai Slim as it is easier than Sungai Selangor. After taming Sungai Slim, you can then conquer Sungai Selangor. If you have rafted before, then we recommend Sungai Selangor. If you want plenty of fun & thrills then Slim River with its numerous rapids is highly recommended.

4. How many people ride in each raft?

Our rafts can accommodate 6 people. There are 2 river guides to a raft. So there will be up to 8 people on the raft. Your river guides may arrange your seating to distribute your weight or reduce the number on people on the raft to make it lighter. The width of our rafts are 5 feet 6 inches. Some of the river channels are very narrow measuring only 2 to 3 feet. You may wonder how we can ever get through them. No, I won’t give you the answer here..I’ll save them for when we meet you on the trip.

5. Is rafting dangerous?

Rafting is thrilling, exciting, wet, wild and unbelievably fun. That said, as with all outdoor adventure activities, rafting involves an element of inherent risk. Our guides are trained to manage and minimize these risks, and, statistically, rafting is far safer than many other outdoor sports. The most common injury on most rafting trips is sunburn, and most other injuries occur on land, especially when getting into and out of the rafts. We take many first timers as well as those who do not consider themselves strong swimmers on our rafting trips all the time and they have a great time! When you raft with us, all of your equipment, from your US Coast Guard Safety Standard personal flotation device (PFD), to your lightweight, reinforced, T-grip paddle, to your virtually indestructible, self-bailing, compartmented and unsinkable raft, is state-of-the-art and will serve you well. Your guide will teach you the principle of self-rescue and will also have his eye on you should you accidentally bump out of the raft. He will quickly work with your paddle companions to help you get back in the raft.

6. How easy is it to learn to raft?

It’s easy! Our experienced guides will teach you the basics including everything from how to hold your paddle, how to turn the raft, how to stop or pick up speed and what to do if you fall out. We make sure you are comfortable, relaxed and having fun from start to finish.

7. What happens on a typical trip?

You’ll will meet us at a designated rendezvous place and time such as your office. You will be transported to Sungai Slim or Kuala Kubu Bharu (Sungai Selangor). The journey will take approximately 1 1⁄2 hours. When we arrive at our Put-In Point your Trip Leader will issue you a PFD, paddle and helmet. You will then listen to our 40 minute safety briefing about how you, your team members and your guide will work together as a team on the water. Then you and your friends will head to your raft! As you go through your expedition, we will make a stop to rest. You will be given mineral water, fresh fruits, and chocolates to restock your energy and take a breather. Once everyone has rested we will continue rafting on the river until we reach our take-out point. From here, you will head back to the base camp to relax, brag to your friends about your experience on the river, shower and change into your dry clothes. Then you can head for the buffet line for the most delicious buffet lunch this side of the world. (Boy, when you’re hungry everything taste delicious!) We are the only company which have permanent base camps at both rivers. The basecamps are covered with changing/shower facilities, toilets and dining area. Once everyone has rested, we will drive you back to our rendezvous point earlier in the morning. You should arrive back at about 4.00pm (approximately).

8. Can I bring my camera?

If you want to bring a camera, we highly recommend bringing an underwater camera or at least a disposable underwater camera. There IS a likelihood of your normal camera getting wet as there is water everywhere. We have seen many expensive cameras totally destroyed by water. If you lose your disposable camera it’s not the end of the world. (But remember to check with your guide before taking photos–they may need you to paddle!)

If you are organising a group outing with us, we recommend you appoint our photographer to take your action photos for you. That way you can be assured of getting the best action shots of you going through the rapids. Memories for you to keep in your albums, and on your Facebook and blog.

This covers the paddling commands, capsize drills, paddling skills, actions when overboard or river rescue and then further instruction is conducted in the water before setting off for the adventure trip itself.

Keep in mind, all equipment meet US Coast Guard safety standards for whitewater rafting.

BOOKING

Travelling Haneda to Kuala Lumpur on AirAsia. Going to Malaysia just got easier (and cheaper!)

With AirAsia, Japanese makes Malaysia their favourite South East Asian destination for nature and adventure

 

It is certainly great news to people in Japan now that AirAsia has flights departing from Haneda in Tokyo to the Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) in Malaysia. With there being Haneda Kuala Lumpur flight on AirAsia, this makes Malaysia as a holiday destination so much easier and within reach of the normal independent traveller adventurous enough to venture out and discover this wonderfully colorful country.

AirAsia departs not only from Tokyo but also from other big cities in Japan such as Sapporro, Okinawa, Osaka and Fukuoka. That’s plenty of departure points to choose from! AirAsia flight leaves Haneda (Tokyo) at 11:55pm which is excellent. One of our recent customers, Mr Kohei Umeno from Tokyo, said that the flight departure time is excellent because he can go to work on that day, finish his work and then leave for the airport to catch the night flight D7 523 to Kuala Lumpur.

When the flight reaches Kuala Lumpur LCCT at 6.35am the following morning after your restful sleep on your flight you have plenty of time left on your arrival day to discover the city. Getting into the city from the airport is easy because there are plenty of public transportation to choose from. AirAsia operates their Skybus and you can hop onto this bus which will take you to Kuala Lumpur at only a few ringgit. It’s not luxurious but it gets you into town at a fraction of hiring a taxi.

If you had proper rest during your flight, there is no need to take a nap once you arrive at the hotel. Remember Tokyo is only 1 hour ahead of Kuala Lumpur so you do not experience any jet lag. Leave your luggage in your hotel and then go out to discover this vibrant city. Grab your breakfast from a hawker stall. There are plenty to choose from – noodles, rice, rotis with curry and more. Our prices are unbelieveably cheap if you compare with prices in Japan. For RM8.00 (or about ¥204) can get you a very decent and filling breakast together with a hot drink.

WHERE TO STAY IN KUALA LUMPUR

In terms of places to stay in Kuala Lumpur, there are really plenty to choose from. It is not difficult to find accommodation from a guest house or a backpackers’ inn to a super deluxe hotel here in the city. The consideration that you will have to make to decide on your place to stay is not just the type of hotel (this would also influence your budget) but also the location. If you are in a suitable location especially near train stations (LRT) and eating places, you would save a lot on your transportation. Try not to use taxis in your travel plans as they have received bad raps from the travelling community.

There are a few recommended places you can decide on from our suggestions here. They have been given the thumbs up by our guests who have come on our trips before. We do not do the booking for them. They had done the hotel booking themselves prior to their travel and we just asked where they stayed and their opinion but kept a list of them. So here they are:

BACK HOME KL

Cheap, nice design and walking distance to Chinatown and Masjid Jamek. This is more of a guest house but nicely appointed. This is in the older part of Kuala Lumpur. Every comfortable room at the BackHome KL has an iron. The bathrooms include a shower. Family-friendly rooms are available, spacious enough to accommodate guests travelling with kids.

G TOWER

Located in Jalan Ampang. Near the US Embassy. Walking distance to the LRT (then onwards to other stations in town) and the KLCC park, the Petronas Twin Towers.

Kuala Lumpur Cycling Tour | A Day Trip to Explore the Country on Two Wheels

 

 

 

 

 

Wondering what you can do when you are on vacation in Malaysia and happen to be in Kuala Lumpur? Well, you should consider joining our KUALA LUMPUR CYCLING TOUR for something quite different. Many people visiting the country looking for a cycling tour in the city and there’s not much information you can find. But your in luck because we do offer just that.

There could be a reason why finding this sort of tour in Kuala Lumpur may be a bit difficult – the main reason is that very few companies offer it if at all. As you know it is a tour which is specialized in nature. Furthermore, Kuala Lumpur can be quite a dangerous place for cyclists due to the amount of traffic on the road.

The place that we conduct the activity is only 1 hour outside of Kuala Lumpur – we will take you there in our transport when we pick you up from the KL Sentral in the city.

There are plenty of beautiful sceneries that you will be going through such as palm plantations, rubber plantations, natural hotspring, typical villages and ponds. Not only that, we finish the cycling tour at our basecamp which is located next to a refreshing stream.

Geocaching Adventure from Kuala Lumpur

WHAT IS GEOCACHING?

Geocaching is an exciting high-tech version of treasure hunting. Geocachers seek out hidden treasures utilizing GPS coordinates posted on the Internet by those hiding the cache. Using a GPS, you then trek out into the backwoods or urban jungles to find the hiding spot of the cache. Once found, a cache may provide you with a wide variety of rewards. If you take something out of the cache, you are asked to leave something in return. For some, the biggest reward is the thrill of the search and the discovery of a place that they have never been.

GEOCACHING IN MALAYSIA

There are many hidden geocaches in Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Langkawi, and other cities, islands and popular holiday destinations. So there are plenty of opportunities of enjoying the beautiful Malaysian outdoors and seeing some scenic places in the country in a totally enjoyable and immersive way.
