rafting -- extreme & adventure - fear factor

My cousin-Izni and i took friends from Scotland (Glasgow to be exact) Gail/Fiona/Sandra to white water rafting @ Sungai Selangor (near to Selangor Dam – Kuala Kubu Bharu). Kuala Kubu Bharu is 70km north Kuala Lumpur, a pre-war town with unique buildings - final town on the way up to Fraser's Hill. Nice place to live, i must say.
.
Izni (blogroll) is invloved in outdoor adventures – team building, jungle tracking, mountain biking, water rafting (and all the ings at the back) for individuals, groups, schools, universities, association, alumni, family and corporate. Interested, please call/email him or visit his squidoo HERE @ http://www.squidoo.com/White-water-Rafting-Outdoor-Adventure-from-Kuala-Lumpur @ http://www.squidoo.com/raftingselangor
.
For our info, Selangor River rapid is Grade 4 rapid (in terms of difficulty) as compared to Kampar rapid (Grade 1 – easy - for family) and Banding-Chenderoh Dam rapid (Grade 6 - damn extreme). Izni also covers Slim River (Grade 4)
CORE Management Team - Surin, Ros (in pink) and Izni (cap). Don't play-play with Ros - Grade 6 rafter woo...

The company employs 25 orang Asli (native tribes from suku Jakun & Temuan) -- who can run/jump over the rocks and rapids and pull the raft out of heavy stream/rapid -- oh, their playground what... Other than Jakun and Temuan (mostly located in Selangor) we also have Senoi, Temiar and Sakai (Peninsular Malaysia). Orang Asli have their own radio channel - Radio Asyik (click here >>> http://www.orangasli.co.cc/). Stay tuned OK!

CREW @ Kuala Kubu Bharu Post Office.


Final Safety Briefing
A bridge connecting Kuala Kubu Bharu to uphill Fraser's Hill. Here, used to have a bangee-jumping platform, for us to jump 200-300 ft above rapid (under the bridge). But don't know la... you know la Malaysians - merempit depa OK la, but not bungee jumping (agaknya...).

.
(Dulu, lama dulu, masa aktif dengan Kelab Sukan (sports club), i proposed that the staff/management to go for parachuting (seriously!!) and shooting. Semua orang tak mahu...takut-takut payung terjun tak bukak...)
Crew practical training & Safety Briefing.

Edible fruits - ni ke Cerepu?


Take-Off.



All photos (so-called bird-eye view/satellite view/helicopter view) were taken from the bridge (pic above) - for the first 1 km journey. So no wonder the bungee-jumper will kecut teloq moment before jumping down to the rapid ha ha ha.
(For Gail/Sandra/Fiona should you read this - direct English translation for kecut teloq is SHRUNKEN EGG)















Raft tersangkut, lambat tukar strategi -- air sudah masuk/tenggelam, rafter kena lari naik batu besar tu...

Untuk makluman, alat mengepam raft.

Gail, Fiona and Sandra, during lunch after completing Sungai Selangor rafting. They used to raft @ Scotland but the water there is much colder. They are professional rafters – why – normally the session (from the time you jump to the raft until you reach base camp it will take 2 - 2 1/2 hours) but they did it in 1 hour 30 minutes.
Hope you enjoy your the rafting & your stay here in Malaysia.
