After our morning trip to Gua Tempurung, we quickly rushed to Gopeng for our white water rafting at My Gopeng Resort. My Gopeng Resort is located around 30 minutes drive from Gua Tempurung.
The drive is slow as you are required to drive into small single kampong roads fill with speed bumps. The leading there is also very curvy and many blind corners. I have to press the horn every time I turn the corner. This method of driving reminds me during our Chinese tradition of horning when picking up the bride. Lunch is provided after you have signed your letter of agreement which is quite normal for any outdoor sports now.

After the lunch, we were given a short briefing on how to wear the safety equipments and what to do on the boat during rafting.

Soon, we are on our way to the waters. The Kampar River is just located less than 500m from the resort.Our first lesson is to learn how to do body rafting. This is to provide us confidence in the water and know what to do it we were to fall into the water. The instructor will drop us a rope to save us once we are clear off the rapids. Once done, the real action in the water starts. The instructor will guide us on when to pedal forward or backward or hold on. The important one is “Bom Bom” that is when you should hold on tight and bends inside raft.
The package we paid cost around RM125 per person. The water course is level 3. There are around 8 rapids that we will face. There is 1 huge rapid which is called the “Double Decker”. The instructor gave us an option on this one but after thinking for a while. We thought what the heck and let’s go for the “Double Decker”. This rapid is consisting of 2 plunges and the last one will end up under the water.

There is a 10 minutes break in between the course. Lucky I bought my marine pack camera to capture such a precious moment in camera. After the short break, it is another few more rapids to enjoy.
After that, we were given a chance to do a body rafting down the rapid. We aligned in a straight line by holding on to each other’s life jacket. Here is a picture of us before being washed down the rapid.

Our journey back is via a lorry. This ride reminds me of my previous 4x4 trip to Sg. Lembing. Our group photo with the instructor is classic. After my first experience here, I am keen on more White Water Rafting. Is anyone up for Kuala Kubu Rafting?

The more you learn, the more you know, The more you know, the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. So why bother to learn.

While our dream is confronted with the reality, you always feel painful. Just trample on the pain, or you'll be beat down by it.
