Reviewed 5 March 2014

One of the best white water rafting! 16km down, it was a good 2hours paddle down the river with refreshing water and good current flowing!

“Best rafting ever!”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We went whitewater rafting in Phuket and we thought this would be similar but this is nothing compared to that. Along, the way you get to see greenery, rice fields and locals fishing. A lot of rapids and rocks. You get to stop halfway at a waterfall for a photo op and the option of buying drinks.
The highlight is a 4m/ 12 feet drop at the end. It seems man made but who cares? We had so much fun. The hike back up the hill is a pain..... 400 steps after 2 hours of rafting. Lunch was simple but adequate. Transport was included too. For less than USD30, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

“Mild and relaxing, but look elsewhere for adventure”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Given that my friends and I had rafted at a similar category river in Ipoh, there were expectations Telaga Waja would offer a similar experience. Other than a 4m drop (which seemed man made) near the end, it sorely lacked other drops and rapids along the 17km stretch. The guide tried hard to create excitement by steering the raft into the rocks and banks, but can't say it had much of an effect. Excitement aside, the 2-hour drift down the river was relaxing as the river is surrounded by lush greenery and if you are lucky, you get to witness the lives of the local people there.

“Waste of time and Money”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Its all rocky. Half of the time the raft person is trying to move the boat on his own rather then the flow of the water. Besides the river is smelly and dirty. I went during mansoon expecting it to be a thirlling experience but it was such a waste.

“Thrilling Rafting experience”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

We went in the rainy season (December) so the rapid was very strong and the waterfalls were in their full force, making the rafting experience even more fun and thrilling. It's grade 3/4 so perhaps not for young kids (we did see a couple of crying kids), but for adults with an adventurous heart this is perhaps one of the best things to do in Bali. It's also inexpensive ($30 or less) but you need to book it directly with them, instead of through a hotel which usually asked for $60.

Our only complaint is that the driver who picked up from Ubud is driving a bit too fast on the winding mountain raod, so my wife was quite carsick afterwards.
