White Water Rafting in Phuket
The tour begins from hotel pick-up. On the way to the mountain river, the minibus makes a stop in the Monkey Cave Temple, where you can watch and feed monkeys.
The rafting begins with on-land training, where the activity briefing and the safety rules are explained. All participants must wear helmets and life jackets. After a little coaching, the group is divided into six people per rubber raft, and start the 5 km long rafting trip. Children under seven years old cannot be engaged in the activity.
After the successful passing of all river thresholds, the desirous participants can try the 240m long zipline called the Flying Fox. The tour includes a Thai set lunch served in the White Water Rafting Camp and guided hike to the nearby Ton Pariwat Waterfall.
At extra charge, you may choose the same tour supplemented with elephant trekking in the rainforest. Both activities are under the guidance of experienced instructors, who put the customer’s safety first.
Get Prepared for the Rafting
While preparing to take a raft tour, make sure that you are wearing comfy hiking shoes for the next stroll to the waterfall. Another necessary thing is a dry bag, especially if you are going to take a camera. However, you do not need to stress yourself about taking photos: at the end of the tour, you are able to purchase pictures taken by the White Water Rafting Camp staff during the experience.
Finally, do not forget to put on sunscreen and take some strong bug spray if you want to do the elephant trekking in the rainforest. And, then onward… to adventure!
