WATER ACTIVITIES

As the first white water rafting outfitters on the Sungai Kampar River, Nomad Adventure has the best water-based activities on offer in the Gopeng area. We have been running trips since 1996 down Sungai Kampar’s 22 different rapids which range from Grade 2 to Grade 3. The landscape is stunning. The journey starts with an exciting series of “drop and pool” cascades that are surrounded by rain forest; a nature reserve for the Rafflesia flower and the Rajah Brooke butterfly. On the lower section of the river, the view opens up with vistas of Perak’s unique countryside featuring magnificent limestone outcrops and rustic villages

But… is it safe?

At Nomad Adventure, your safety is our paramount concern. We have been running whitewater trips since 1996 with no major incidents whatsoever to date. We use Type V lifejackets which are US Coast Guard approved for commercial whitewater rafting excursions. Our highly-experienced guides are all certified according to the high safety standards of Rescue 3 International.

What the participants said;

The most wet and wild fun I’ve had with my clothes on!” – Zoe Higginbotham (Scotland)

Exciting, challenging and most of all enjoyable. I am not usually adventurous but I felt safe and well looked after. A great way to experience Malaysia.” – Mary Kitchin (England)


White Water Rafting

White Water Rafting on Sungai Kampar, only 15 minutes from Ipoh in Perak, is an exhilarating experience that anyone can enjoy!

This rafting trip has it all. Sungai Kampar has 22 different rapids which range from Grade 2 to Grade 3. From the excitement of tackling large rapids, to enjoying the serene beauty of a gentle paddle through lush rainforest, this will be an invigorating day spent as one with nature.

Sungai Kampar is very suitable for beginner to intermediate participants. We have taken several thousand youth and corporate participants of all physical abilities on this river and all have had the time of their lives!

Nomad Adventure’s rafting trips are distinctive because we paddle a further 3km past the usual ending point, where all other companies take-out, landing right at our Earth Camp. This allows you to experience the most scenic part of the river giving you the best value for money. All our trips also include a complimentary session of “Introduction to River Safety” so you are fully engaged and will learn something about the sport.
