The Kiulu River offers stunning scenery and gentle white water rapids. Ideal for families, non swimmers and those looking for a small thrill.
Ex-Kota Kinabalau Kiulu River Class I – III White Water Rapids is Gentle Fun ! Located on the northwestern part of Sabah just 1 hour drive from Kota Kinabalu, these gentler grades are ideal for children, novices, non-swimmers and the mature adventurers.
After your transfer from KK, your white water adventure starts with a safety briefing session conducted by the professional rafting guide.
The rafting session covers up to 15km taking about 1 – 2 hours before reaching the ending point where a delicious local lunch is prepared on the banks of the conquered river.
This trip, in our opinion is a “must do” when in Kota Kinabalu, not only for the rapids but also for the pure enjoyment of cruising down a Borneo river and soaking up the sun & stunning surroundings.
