You will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle for your White Water Rafting – Kiulu River, Kota Kinabalu tour. The drive from Kota Kinabalu to Kiulu River takes about 1 ½ hours by road and provides delightful views of the countryside along the way.
On arriving at the river bank, you will meet your rafting guide and receive a briefing on safety procedures. All participants are equipped with safety helmets and life-jackets.
Other than the thrill and excitement of riding the rapids, white water rafting is also an opportunity to see the forests and landscape from a different vantage point.
With headwaters from Mount Kinabalu, the Kiulu River provides a Grade I to II experience and is suitable for newcomers to rafting. Grade I reaches have moving water with a few riffles and small waves. There are few or no obstructions. Grade II sections give you easy rapids with waves up to 3 feet (1m) high and wide, clear channels that are obvious without scouting. Some maneuvering will be required.
Between the rapids there are deep pools where you can indulge in body-rafting or swimming.
This river excursion is between 1.5 to 2 hours, depending on the season. You will also be served a Local Buffet Lunch by the riverside.
After lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel in Kota Kinabalu where your tour ends.
