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.

A Full Day of Adventure in Ulu Slim

A Full Day of Adventure in Ulu Slim: Visit to the Hotspring / 4X4 off-roading / Trekking / Swimming at the Lata Manik Waterfall / White water Rafting Slim River

full day adventure ulu slim perak

How would you like to come to Ulu Slim and have a full day of fun, adventure and excitement? As you may know, Ulu Slim is famous for its white water rafting river – Slim River.

Many people who come on their outdoor activity at Ulu Slim just come for white water rafting. They enjoy the Grade III river very much but when they finish by 1.30pm they want to do more stuff. It is understandable because getting here from Kuala Lumpur would already take them about 1 hour 30 minutes and if they were coming from Ipoh maybe an hour.

I have been asked many times by our guests “So, Izz are there anything else to do around here besides white water rafting?” That got me thinking because I know for sure that there are so many things that one can do while they are spending their day here. Well, let me tell you .. there are.

So I sat down with the team of local guides and we have come up with a FULL DAY ADVENTURE. One that starts early in the morning at 9.00am and does not finish until 4.30pm in the evening. We have put together the program to make sure we have covered most of the highlights found in the area. That’s almost 8 hours worth of activities and experiences.

Ok, let me introduce to you the program. It’s the FULL DAY ULU SLIM ADVENTURE. It’s awesome because we have put in so many activities in it.

The highlights of the program are

VISIT TO THE ULU SLIM HOTSPRING | 4WD OFF-ROADING | TREKKING TO LATA MANIK | SWIMMING AND PICNICKING AT THE WATERFALL | WHITE WATER RAFTING ON SLIM RIVER

  • You’ll visit the Ulu Slim Hotspring. It’s not just any normal hotspring because it is the hottest in the country at 104ºC! We’ll show you how to use the hot water to prepare one of our snacks we will be taking up to the Lata Manik waterfall.
  • Your adventure starts with a ride on our 4WD vehicles on a off-roading journey past lakes, vegetable plantations, up and down hills, and wading a stream before we arrive at Kampung Tibang about 40 minutes away from Ulu Slim. A truly memorable experience.
  • After that a short trek to the Lata Manik water fall. ‘Manik’ is the Orang Asli word for rain. This waterfall is secluded and unknown to the general public. We prefer to leave it that way to preserve the beauty around the area by bringing only small groups at a time.
  • Have a refreshing swim in the cool and crystal clear waterfall. You will have your picnic lunch here.
  • After lunch, we’ll head back from Kampung Tibang and hop onto the 4WD’s and proceed to Kuala Tibang for our white water rafting! Get ready for your extreme adventure down the river with your buddies. Can you conquer the river? Will you flip at ‘Jeram Kotak’ a rapid with a 3.5meter fall? Rafting on this river is a truly memorable experience for anyone who comes.
  • Evening tea at Kampung Ulu Slim amidst the calm serenity of the village. We’ll share our experiences as we enjoy our meal together.

The grandeur of the canyons imparts a feeling of paddling through the heart of Middle Earth. Enjoy the unforgettable 400m long Dog Leg rapid- New Zealand’s longest commercially rafted rapid before returning to Queenstown for a sauna and shower at Cavells Rafting Lodge.
