Looking for some serious wet and wild fun? Then get ready to strap on your life jacket and safety helmet to brave the raging Padas River for some rafting adventure.
With cutesy names such as Merry-Go-Round and Scooby Doo, don’t judge the rapids by their names as each of the seven swollen rapids will ultimately challenge your survival (and paddling) skills to the very core. The tumble of this Grade III to IV river is guaranteed to put even the biggest adrenaline junkie’s heart in his mouth.
This exhilarating excursion covers a distance of 30 kilometers—making it the longest rafting route in Borneo by far. Padas River has also been rated to have some of the best and safest rapids in South East Asia. It is suitable for rafters aged 12 to 55.
When not screaming over whiplashes of water, take the time to drink in the beauty of unadulterated nature at its best. With chirping birds and scrims of majestic trees engulfing the river, Padas white water rafting should be high on your list of nature-adventure must-dos in Sabah.
At the end of the journey, you’ll feel quite warrior-like for your feat in conquering the Padas rapids. Three cheers for courage!
