Activity description

Navigate the grade III rapids of Telaga Waja on this whitewater rafting adventure in Bali.

A wild rapid run in the shadow of mighty Mt. Agung; paddle together to conquer the torrents, twists, tight turns and inclined rapids of the Telaga Waja River in the uplands of Bali. Explore the flanks of this infamous volcano, travelling through narrow gorges and cruising past rice paddies to reach the penultimate challenge – The Water Dam! Hold on, Take a deep breath, and down you go!

This activity takes place on the Telaga Waja River in Eastern Bali. A 10km rapid run, it navigates class +3 rapids with an altitude distance of 100m - rising on the slope of Mount Abang and passing along the region of Rendang Village, reaching the sea in Klungkung Regency.

Meet your guide at the activity base for this white water rafting adventure on the Telaga Waja River. Suitable for groups of friends and families alike, this rapid run travels through the contrasts of the Balinese landscape via bamboo forest, rice paddies, wild jungle and traditional villages. Starting with a short safety briefing and kit check, head to the embankment area with your very own in-boat guide – learning some basic commands and paddle techniques. Setting off on the river, race through the untamed rainforest in the foothills of Mt Agung – passing wild waterfalls and ancient stone carvings as it picks up the pace. In a continual spray of fresh mountain water, you will rush past steep banks and ancient hanging trees, whilst rafting guides will give you instruction and work with you to safely navigate the raft through torrents, twists, tight turns and inclined rapids. Overhead obstacles, narrow gorges and breathtaking views of terraced rice plains all along the way will give you an appetite for your final challenge, The Water Dam – a vertical drop with a splash zone that’s perfect for taking some action shots. After reaching the take-out area, dry off and enjoy a light lunch before you’re transported back to your accommodation.

This activity is suitable for children +12 years old. It navigates class +III rapids on a 10km stretch of river. Please consult the river grading system below:
Class II: Straightforward rapids with wide, clear channels which are evident without scouting.
Class III: Rapids with moderate, irregular waves, strong eddies and powerful currents.
