BangkokMap: White H2o Rafting Inwards Phang Nga

It's been a long fourth dimension since I tried white H2O rafting. Back inward my young, gibe days I did it a few times. The outset was inward Republic of Zimbabwe on the Zambezi river (see Phi Phi as well as James Bond Island as well as meet the Fantasea show as well as thus on, at that spot are some "must see" things around here! To the northward of Phuket Thailand yous get got Phang Nga province, which nosotros see often. It's a huge expanse amongst a lot to see, as well as fifty-fifty this twelvemonth nosotros get got done several trips exploring roads that were novel to us, including the Klong Kian expanse as well as the Tone Pariwat Waterfall. Along the route to this waterfall, which followed a river, nosotros saw many rafting companies as well as lots of elephants (for elephant trekking). So final calendar week when our friends who run the Easy Day Thailand tour fellowship asked us to bring together a fun "company trip" including rafting as well as a nighttime inward Khao Lak, nosotros knew where to become as well as looked forwards to some other movement inward that direction. really overnice scenery around there. It's solely well-nigh a ninety infinitesimal movement from where nosotros alive close Phuket Thailand Town - out of Phuket Thailand, over the bridge, to Phang Nga Town as well as thus well-nigh some other 15km after the town. And nosotros got lucky amongst the depression flavor weather condition which during July as well as early on August had seen plenty of air current as well as rain. On Sabbatum August 15th the weather condition was beautiful. We reached the "Best Rafting 4U" headquarters well-nigh 9:30am as well as had fourth dimension to instruct some coffee, get got a piffling walk past times the river as well as hold off for the whole grouping to become far inward dribs as well as drabs.

(above) The river adjacent to the rafting camp. Not really rough! You meet .. farther upstream is a dam, which is opened when all the rafts (from diverse companies) are create to go, this increases the river menses as well as makes things to a greater extent than fun :) In extreme weather condition the river itself tin overflow the dam, as well as rafting can't hold upwards done. It did seem pretty rubber to me, nix likewise scary if yous get got done it before. Quite scary for my 10 twelvemonth quondam man child :) I get got read over the years of at to the lowest degree ane expiry on a rafting trip, but non certain if that was hither or inward Khao Sok national park. We all had to wearable helmets as well as lifejackets on the rafts, as well as it was plenty of fun, but inward our grouping at that spot were kids every bit immature every bit 5, thus I intend that is a stair out of the danger factor. Actually I am non certain if they by as well as large permit kids that young, but every bit nosotros were a large "travel agent" group, I jurist whatsoever such dominion was waived.

So nosotros were driven inward trucks a few km upwards river to "the dam" where rafts were launched downwardly a slide as well as nosotros walked downwardly stairs to the water, as well as thus had to piece of occupation out the raft ane time to a greater extent than 20 meters after as well as clamber over rocks to instruct to the actual river. And thus hold off for the dam to hold upwards opened .... Before this, a briefing was given explaining how to sit down inward the raft, to psyche to the guide on the raft as well as what to practise should nosotros autumn out! Rafts could concur 4 - v people. So nosotros took a raft for our identify unit of measurement of 4.

(above) Launching a raft into the calm H2O higher upwards the dam. Actually the hardest exercise of the trip for big, clumsy me was climbing over rocks to instruct dorsum into the raft but below the dam. This dam is non huge, but holds the H2O well-nigh 5m higher than the river below, thus ane time they opened upwards it, at that spot is quite a rush! Our rafts waited until the H2O was high plenty as well as thus ready off pretty darn fast!

They practise recommend non taking phones or cameras. We took an older iPhone as well as had a dry out bag. The photograph higher upwards (my man child as well as me) was taken every bit nosotros started moving. I think, inward hindsight, I could get got taken a nicer photographic idiot box camera inward the dry out purse as well as snapped photos betwixt rougher sections of river, but this is ideal GoPro photographic idiot box camera territory, or whatsoever small-scale waterproof camera. My helmet fifty-fifty had some form of mountain built in. H5N1 selfie stick amongst a GoPro - fifty-fifty improve :) But I can't stand upwards people who, instead of enjoying something, are constantly taking their ain picture, thus they tin relish watching themselves later. Enjoy the NOW! And every bit the rafting fellowship takes photos every bit yous caput downwardly the river which they volition frame as well as sell yous after for 200 Baht, yous volition instruct a skillful activity shot of yourself!

(above) That's us! Photo taken past times the rafting company. Looks quite stone oil truly .. I jurist at that spot were a few piffling sections that had me falling over backwards inward the raft as well as nearly squashing my son! The whole rafting sense was over inward well-nigh xxx minutes. I am certain they told us it was a 5km ride, but if I await on Google Earth, looks similar well-nigh one-half of that. And at times every bit nosotros rushed downwardly rapids as well as into calmer areas, it did seem surprisingly crowded, peculiarly every bit this is depression season. There were rafts from several dissimilar operators at the same time. Although - when I rate "low season", it's belike the best fourth dimension for rafting. If yous try this inward a dry out February, the river powerfulness get got depression H2O levels/ Now, after some rain, it was but well-nigh perfect.

We finished our rafting correct adjacent to the BestRafting4U camp, where they get got some decent bathrooms, thus nosotros could change, dump moisture clothe inward our cars, as well as they provided a large buffet lunch. We were but hither for rafting, every bit the weekend was to hold upwards combined amongst a relaxing remain inward Khao Lak (about 50 km to the west). Most people would sign upwards for combination opportunity tours amongst rafting, visiting the waterfall, mayhap elephant riding, ATV rides, jungle zip-lining, at that spot are several options - yous tin inquire our friends at Easy Day Thailand well-nigh these trips. We but came for a fleck of whitewater fun, as well as thus headed off for some fourth dimension past times the puddle inward Khao Lak at The Leaf On The Sands Resort.

Now that we've done this trip, yeah I practise recommend it of yous are of a sporty nature (and tin swim). The hills as well as rivers inward Phang Nga brand a overnice twenty-four hours out peculiarly if yous are staying at a busier Beach Thailand expanse inward Phuket Thailand. It's skillful to meet to a greater extent than than but the Beach Thailand hither inward Phuket Thailand, as well as a fleck of rafting combined amongst other things is something to add together to the Phuket Thailand "to do" list. And right away we've done it :)
