Needing to cool off? Then a visit to Kali River Rapids is just the thing! Artifacts direct from the Asian continent and native birds can be seen as you head towards the raft dock. Once there, you'll board your 12-seater circular raft and float out into the turbulent waters of Chakranadi River for a wild, wet ride through a jungle habitat jeopardized by illegal logging. A jasmine-scented mist begins your journey and you climb upwards into the headwaters. Before long however, your on the way down again and contending with the swirling rapids and unexpected drops. You'll pass by ancient temple ruins and a barren smokey landscape where illegal logging is underway, causing your raft to drift perilously close to a tangled arch of burning wood. Many more twists, turns and splashes await (not to mention one or two surprises) before your return to the safety of the dock. But be warned, you will get wet!

A change of clothing, footwear or a towel is always a good idea as you can get particularly soaked if you luck out with how the raft moves.
Water jets which squirt riders as they near the end of the ride can be operated from the bridge overlooking the waterway. Get your own back on those who might have sprayed you!
