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.

Introducing Children to White Water Rafting

white water rafting in malaysia with children1. You can start children on white-water rafting adventures as it gives them an excellent opportunity to enjoy themselves outdoors.

2. In Malaysia, there are a few rivers that are suited for children. Sungai Kampar in Perak is one of them. Sungai Kampar is a 30 minute drive from Ipoh and a 2 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. From Kuala Lumpur, take the North-South Expressway headed north and exit at the Gopeng Toll Exit.

3. We have had some parents bringing their children as old as 7 but we feel a good age to start them on white-water rafting is about 9-10 years old. By them they would have more confidence (hence make them less fearful of the rapids), slightly stronger to swim (if it was required) and would understand instructions better.

4. We enjoy taking children white-water rafting because we know it is not only the adventure of going on the river but there is so much for them to learn – the rainforest that we are in, the different people that they will be meeting, trying different food, immersing themselves in the culture of the locals, etc.

5. We hope to be able to introduce these to children at a young age so they appreciate the outdoors, the adventures they go through, they understand their own capabilities and gain more confidence along the way.

6. Do you think you want to bring your children on an adventure of a lifetime? Get in touch with us. We would only be too happy to welcome you!

WHITE WATER RAFTING RIVERS IN MALAYSIA

Rivers have long been the means of  connecting the native people of the land. They were until now a source of food, a means of transport, and now, an avenue for adventure tourism.

The indigenous people in the country has been using sampans and rafts for centuries, but whitewater rafting has only been a popular recreational and tourist activity in Malaysia since the early 1980s. Experiences variety from the high adrenaline Grade 5 rapids to the more tranquil family rides. Some of the rivers are very remote and long, traversing through kampongs and Orang Asli settlements. There are opportunities to traverse through virgin rainforests full of birds and animal life, while others even flow past limestone caves and prehistoric archaeological sites.

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

Is White water Rafting Sungai Selangor the Best Choice? Find out the inside scoop on why Slim River may be a better option.

We receive plenty of bookings from those who want to come white-water rafting. Most of these bookings are for Sungai Selangor which is located in Kuala Kubu Bharu, Selangor. They could have heard about this river from their friends, or they could have read about it on the net. There are even some who may not care much about which river they raft on as long as they get to go on a white water rafting trip.

Well, Sungai Selangor is but only one of the several rivers available for white water rafting located just outside of Kuala Lumpur. Besides this river there are also Sungai Slim (Slim River) and Sungai Kampar.  Both rivers are located in Perak.  Both this rivers can be rafted and done as a day trip just like Sungai Selangor. For the dare devil rafters there is even Sungai Singor in Grik, Perak. Now this one is considered a Grade 5 white water rafting river.

Most rafting outfitters prefer to promote Sungai Selangor because of the close proximity of the river to the city and also to their home base. Therefore, operating on Sungai Selangor can shave off some of their operating costs. By operating here, there wouldn’t be additional costs such as off-road transportation of equipment, guides, rafters and even food.

With Sungai Selangor, rafters would normally have a great time on the river but unfortunately Sungai Selangor is not without its bad points.  Although this river is considered a Grade 4, often times the flow of the river is very much influenced by the water volume.  The water volume is controlled by the huge dam upstream managed by Splash.  Splash stands for Syarikat Pengeluaran Air Selangor Sdn. Bhd. – a state owned water management company.

Rafting outfitters do not know in advance how much water will be released by Splash on any given day and this makes it difficult for them to know the river condition in advance. After years of meetings and discussions between Splash, the local municipality, the tourism ministry and all those involved, this issue has never been resolved until today.

So rafting outfitters can only hope that there would be sufficient water volume on any given day for them to conduct their rafting runs.  It is always a touch-and-go situation. This does not augur well when it involves conducting white water rafting programs of international scale and quality.

But it is safe to say that over 80% of their rafting runs can be conducted without the need for any postponement, cancellation or change in venue.  In saying so, there would be that small percentage of about 20% of the rafters that may face this inconvenience.

Therefore, our advice is if you plan to come white water rafting choose Slim River. The reason this river is not very well known is that Slim River is a relatively new river for white water rafting if compared to Sungai Selangor or Sungai Kampar.  These other rivers have been on the rafting map for years and therefore with the information available and through word-of-mouth, they would be the more popular choices.

Slim River actually has plenty to offer to novices and experienced rafters alike. To begin with, the location is simply remarkable.  You are actually rafting in a remote setting in some very beautiful part of the rainforest in Perak. So when you raft, it is not just rafting exhilaration but also the chance to be in a peaceful jungle setting.

Do you know that getting to the put-in-point (the starting point) is an adventure in itself? Because of the remoteness of the put-in-point located deep in the jungle, we will transport you off-road using our 4 wheel drive (4WD) vehicles.  The steep ascents and descents, the muddy trails, twist and turn of the single track will get your adrenalin pumping even before the start of your rafting.

And as you pass through some Orang Asli villages along the way and watching their laid back lifestyle, it gives you a feeling that you’re totally away in a remote area away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Slim River, a Grade 3 rafting river, has plenty of rapids and they come one after the other. So you can be guaranteed of the chance of challenging rapid after rapid on your 2 hour journey down the river.  Believe me, you will get a good work out at the end of the trip.

And the best of all, this is a natural flowing river unlike Sungai Selangor. So we can raft on this river throughout the year. From the years of operating here, there has never been a trip cancellation due to low water volume. You can be assured that when you arrive, there would be a very very high probability your rafting program will be going on as scheduled.

Having read this, when you’re planning a white-water rafting day trip from Kuala Lumpur ask for Slim River by name and we can promise that you will have a fantastic day out with us.

We hope to meet you when you come white water rafting on Slim River!
