White Water Rafting
White Water Rafting at Kampar River in Gopeng is a very popular rafting in Peninsula Malaysia. Whitewater rafting on Sungai Kampar, only 15 minutes from Ipoh in Perak. The clear water of Kampar River (Class I-III) is suitable for anyone who is physically fit and those who crave for mild technical adventure whilst safely enjoy a rafting trip. From the excitement of tackling large rapids, to enjoying the serene beauty of a gentle paddle through lush rainforest, this will be an invigorating day spent at one with nature.
Nomad Adventure's rafting trips are distinctive because our full-length trip does not take out at the halfway point! This allows you to experience the most scenic part of the river. All our trips also include a complimentary session of "Introduction to River Safety" so you are fully engaged and will learn something about the sport. Rafts are usually propelled with ordinary paddles and typically hold 4 to 12 persons.
Participants are advised to wear shorts, t-shirt, swimwear, sandals with strap or rubber shoes, and goggles. Participants are advised to also bring a change of clothes, towel, insect repellent and sunblock lotion. Individuals with chronic health issues and pregnant women should avoid this activity.
