Padas River Rafting (1D)

Padas River Rafting (1D)

Navigate through some of the best rapids in Southeast Asia as you traverse the Padas River!


This rafting excursion offers you the chance to take on some of the most challenging rapids in Borneo deep in traditional headhunter territory. Negotiate through at least seven exciting rapids along a distance of nine kilometres, a tough course that will test your rafting skills.

Your excursion begins with a morning drive from Kota Kinabalu to Beaufort, where a train will you towards Tenom. You will alight the train just before Tenom at the rafting start point at the Padas River. After a safety briefing by the guide, the whitewater rafting begins in earnest!

Rush down the river with waves as high as six feet and seven Grade IV rapids, with names like Merry-Go-Round Rapid, Break Point Rapid, Scooby Doo Rapid, Cobra Rapid, Curve Rapid, Lambada Rapid and Head Hunter Rapid. Soak in the wild atmosphere of the untamed jungle surroundings as you make your way down the river. A delightful lunch awaits you at the riverbanks after you complete your river journey. Unwind and relax as you make your way back to Kota Kinabalu.
