Can I drink the water in the river?
No. Drinking the water in any river in Bali will make you sick. Only drink water that has been properly filtered.
Are children allowed on the rivers?
Yes, but please let us know at the time of booking the ages of your children. During wet periods, some rivers may not be suitable for children. We will know at the time of booking which river is most appropriate for your kids.
How do I choose between the to rivers?
Both are generally fine for beginners, but there may be some exceptions during the wet season when rapids are at their biggest. If you are not sure, you can always try the easier Ayung river first, but if you know you want the most challenging experience with more excitement we recommend Telaga Waja. If you are still in doubt, contact us here and we can help you chose a river that is best for you.
Are there any snakes or crocodiles in the river?
No. These rivers are safe from dangerous animals. In the jungle you may occasionally see snakes, but it is very, very rare to see them in any part of the river we raft in.
What happens if someone gets injured?
Due to our extensive safety procedures and experienced guides, injuries rarely occur. In the rare case that there is an accident, our guides are trained in basic first aid and evacuation procedures. After first aid has been applied, an injured person will be cared for appropriately. In the case of evacuation, the river rescue team will help get the guest to the nearest hospital where the next of kin will be notified.
How many tourists and rafts are on the river?
The river association limits the number of rafting companies on the river at any one time so crowds are kept to a minimum. Even so, since the Ayung river is easier and closer to most tourist areas, it gets the larger crowds.
Is it really necessary to hire a guide for the river?
Yes. You cannot engage in any sort of river rafting in Bali unless you are using a licensed river company.
