White Water Rafting full day

  • Pick-up time from your hotel is 8:00, followed by a 1-hour transfer out to Da Don Commune, which the river runs through.
  • Once you get to our start point, you inflate the rafts, go through a briefing where the technique for this river and this style of the raft are covered, then board the rafts and are on your way.
  • You will use 2 man kayak-style rafts to navigate the river as they provide better maneuverability and allow you to run the river even when the water level is lower. More giant rafts are used when the water level is higher.
  • The first encounter challenge is a 6-meter waterfall jumping (optional), quickly pumping our blood. Immediately after this, we will face a series of rapids that give you no chance to stop paddling. 
  • The next section of the river has a lower class but continuous rapids that roll through the stunning countryside. We come to an area with a fantastic coffee plantation that we need to portage the raft through to avoid the 2nd of the waterfalls on this trip. 
  • Another series of intense and continuous rapids before finally coming to a 3km flat section. Great photo ops are available as we paddle through this calmer section of the river.
  • After a short break to take in the scenery, we prepare for the most intense part of the trip, which has us bombing through a Class 3 rapid, which is immediately followed by several Class 2 rapids. We finally finish our adventure, having run through 10 kilometers of the mighty Da Don River
  • A welcome lunch spot is set up right at the minority village. Lunch is picnic style with fresh fruits and vegetables, and more than enough to satisfy the appetite you have built up.
  • After lunch, we rest for a while and enjoy the remoteness of the spot we are at, and then our vehicle meets us for the 1-hour transfer back to Da Lat.
