Kiulu Water Rafting (Grade 1-2)

Minimum 2 pax · Half Day Tour · Tamparuli



Tour Details


Kiulu Water Rafting is a moderately adventurous activity that is ideal for individuals looking for a relaxed trip. It’s suitable for people of all skill levels, including the elderly and children. As a result, it is ideal for beginners before progressing to higher levels, such as Padas Water Rafting.

The tour, which is rated between 1 and 2, covers up to 15 kilometres when the water level is high and 7 kilometres when the water level is average. The excursion begins with a trained raft guide providing a safety briefing, rafting technique, and proper equipment handling.

This adrenaline-pumping adventure usually takes from 12 – 2 hours of rafting to reach the final point, and while you’re floating over the rapids, keep a watch out for possible wildlife on the Kiulu River’s bank.



Kiulu River is located in a small town called Kiulu in Tamparuli District, with a population of over 2,000 people and only 1 hour and 30 minutes by car from Kota Kinabalu city. During your journey to Kiulu, you will be mesmerised by the incredible scenery of peaceful villages, lush green hills and clean rivers.
