Conquer a river
There are few sports and activities that get more extreme than whitewater rafting – rapid currents, tight river passages, little control over your path; what’s not to love? For a taste, Xventure Mind carries out whitewater rafting activities at the Hulu Selangor River at relatively affordable rates. The route begins at the start of the river not far from the Selangor Dam, where currents don’t pose much of a challenge (rated at Class II and Class III difficulty levels). As the course progresses however, you’ll head into rapids with currents of up to Class IV difficulty levels – that’s when the adrenaline really starts pumping. Throw in small drops, big splashes and a couple of tough corners and you’ve got yourself a trip that’ll take you the whole weekend to recover from. àMeet- up point: Pos Malaysia Kuala Kubu Bharu, 165 Jalan Abdul Hamid, Pekan Kuala Kubu Bharu, Hulu Selangor (012 465 3307/malaysia-whitewater-rafting.com).
