This is a ‘must-do’ experience for nature lovers and the adventurous and outdoor person visiting Kuching and looking for a Kuching day trip.

Kayak through the rainforests on a meandering river in the Bau district, about an hour’s drive from Kuching. You begin your adventure in Krokong village beneath a suspension pedestrian bridge. Shaded by overhanging canopies of trees with the sounds of rustling water and chirpings of insects and birds, you will be transported away on a timeless journey in the magical rainforests.

The river will meander between dolomites hills with strange and wonderful shapes shaped over time by the waters. These truly unique speleological formations are a sight to behold.

The peaceful flat water will be punctuated occasionally by Class 1 to Class 2 rapids for a thrilling water ride.

You will want to bring your own camera to photograph the beautiful sceneries and capture this enthralling experience. Don’t forget your spare films and batteries!

The trip ends at the Wind Cave, Bau where there are public facilities to shower and change. The transport will pick you up here for your return journey back to Kuching after your unforgettable experience.

This is a unique experience that you will not want to miss while visiting Kuching.

We highly recommend this Kuching day trip.

See you on the waters!

Duration 5 to 6 hours (including transportation from and back to Kuching)
Pick-up Time 8.30 a.m. from hotels in the city. Surcharge of RM20/- per person for pick-up from Damai beach resorts.
Fitness Level Easy to Moderate
Minimum 2 Persons
Other Requirement Non-swimmer must be accompanied by a guide on the same kayak. We do not allow more than 1 to 2 non-swimmers per trip. Life jackets must be worn by all participants at all times while on the waters.
Price RM188/- per person

Note: Depending on the river conditions, we may offer this trip at Borneo Highlands instead for an equally (if not more) scenic and memorable river experience! This is actually our favourite river.

After about 40 minutes drive from town you are transported to the mist covered hill sides of Borneo Highlands with undulating terrain dotted by small scale pepper farms where you’ll alight at Bengoh, a delightful Bidayuh village and staging point for journeys by foot or rivers deep into the interiors.

Here you’ll be given brief paddling instructions and safety briefing before proceeding down some steps to a small tributary where your parked kayaks await you for a group photo opportunity before we embark on our kayaking adventure. This shaded stream with overhanging trees, steep banks and a bridge overhead has just enough room for your kayaks to get through and meanders a short distance before opening into the vista of Sg. Sarawak Kiri.

A quarter of the way floating down the river we’ll alight at Kg Danu just after the pedestrian only suspension bridge, to stretch our legs and to have a short walk to have a look at this delightful Bidayuh village. You can purchase seasonal fruits there and the most popular being ‘the king of fruits’ - the durian!

After the swimming and delicious lunch break, you’ll be astounded by the ever changing and stunning scenic views as you turn the corner. Just before we reach the end of the journey before the suspension bridge at Kg. Semadang, we’ll kayak beneath a huge rock outcrop which turns into an unexpected waterfall on rainy days!
