INVITATION - WhiteWater Rafting @ Gopeng Perak

by - Friday, November 27, 2009

Have you guys heard about Whitewater Rafting before?
I do, but since I don't know how to swim, I not really care about it.
On 14.11.09, I had opportunity to experience it.
Thanks to Nomad ^^

Nomad Adventure is the first professional whitewater kayaking outfitters in Malaysia,
operating since 1996.

The founder, Chan Yuen-Li, is a self-taught paddler who ventured the first descents of several white water rivers up to Grade 4 - Upper Sungai Selangor, Sungai Luit, Sungai Raya and Sungai Chamang in Pahang.

In 2003 Nomad Adventure were the pioneers who developed commercial whitewater rafting on Sungai Kampar in Gopeng. We trained the first locals in the area to become river guides. From the start, we initiated the highest safety standards by investing in trainers who are internationally recognized rafting leaders from Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Nomad’s efforts have made Gopeng in Perak one of the top adventure destinations in South East Asia.
