White Water Rafting,
Info : White Water Rafting
Famous for its cultural significance in and to Bali, Ubud also has much to offer the more adventurous traveller. One of the more exhilarating activities on offer in the surrounding countryside is White Water Rafting on the Ayung River. Almost as big an appeal as the rafting itself is the truly spectacular scenery as you travel down the Ayung gorge.
Switching between Class II and III rapids, you will wind through deep valleys with cascading waterfalls and towering cliffs of prehistoric significance. On the more leisurely stretches through tropical forests you will see brightly decorated Hindu shrines. At Experience Travel safety is paramount and the boats used are of the highest quality and the life jackets are modern international standard and checked frequently. The staff are also highly experienced in handling the rafts. After the rafting, and an opportunity to get dry and change, an excellent lunch will be served on the terrace river cafÃ©.
Whilst not for the feint hearted, the rafting here is not as 'wild' here as certain other destinations and provides a good opportunity for those experimenting with the sport for the first time. It also excellent for families and small groups.The rafting is at its best during the wet season and the river level can get low at the end of the dry season.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
