Con­quer a river

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Things To Do -

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). RM180 per pax with a min­i­mum of four per raft.
