Kiulu River, Tamparuli

Hello...Kiulu river is a very popular tourist spot for those who likes white water-rafting..
The water is clear and clean, but on rainy seasons it may turn to chocolate and dark brown
the water flow will be more turbulent..

Nevertheless, it is much safer than rafting in Sungai Padas (Padas River), Sungai = River.

The Kiulu river is an hour and a half by road north of Kota Kinabalu. Take in the magnificent views of the surrounding countryside from the hilltops as you drive to the town of Tamparuli. By the banks of the river, participants assemble for a briefing on safety procedures.

Welcomed by buffaloes...


Getting ready for adventure!



Full with anticipation!



Passed by a "narrow bridge"..up hills are villages..




Rafting is for everyone who has an adventurous spirit!





With headwaters from Mt. Kinabalu, this river provides a Grade II to III experience, suitable for newcomers to this exciting sport. Deep pools punctuate rapids - indulge in body-rafting or swimming.



The river journey is between 1 to 1 ½ hours, depending on river-stage. Picnic by the riverside before returning to Kota Kinabalu.


DO's and DON'T's if u a here..
