River Rafting on Padas River Kota Kinabalu Reviews
A thrilling ride! Jun 10, 2011
I have done quite a few river rafting's in my time, and they have all been pretty good.. Rather touristy (read: slow and manageable), and for everyone... Padas river is everything but this!!
Even in times where it hasnt rained for days, this river is WILD! Go on rainy days and you are in for the ride of your life! We went 2 days after a heavy rainfall, and this river was running like theres no tomorrow!
Some other parties did chose another operator (guide) who took the "safe" route down the river, but not ours.. We went through all the category 4's and 5's we could find! And it was wild and thrilling!
Padas river is by far the best river rafting experience I have ever had, and I would recommend it to anyone who is going to northern Borneo.
PS: even the ride to the start of the river is cool, its an old train that takes you there, and we had to go out to push trees off the track! No kidding! :)
