Kiulu Valley Raft And Ride
A wild and wet day out for the energetic!
After a short briefing and bike fitting, you will head out for one of the most beautiful rides in rural Sabah. We cycle through small riverside villages which are home to the Dusun tribal people as well as jungle, plantations and the Dusun people’s farms. The hills are thankfully few, far apart and short on the main route but if you are feeling like stretching your legs a little, our guides can take you off to explore some more adventurous trails with single-track and technical descents. A support vehicle is nearby at all times should a problem occur.
After the ride, transfer to lunch point, where you will enjoy a tasty barbecue lunch, and change into your rafting clothes ( if you want to change!) . This tropical weather's rafting is a fun-filled ride down the picturesque Kiulu River through jungle-clad valleys and past villages and farms with enough white water to get you excited but not enough to scare you.
