Whitewater Rafting

The Wa River has 3 sections for rafting – each is a different level of difficulty and each requires a different amount of time.

  1. Start Section: Requires overnight stay, and in here the Wa River is narrow and swift, with 100+ rapids in its journey down toward Mae Charim National Park. In Wet Season (June-Sept) this section is rated at Grade 4 – 5.
  2. Middle Section: Can be divided into 2 portions – the first is a day trip and a bit easier, but there are some Grade 4 sections and excellent scenery. The 2nd stretch of river is a bit more difficult and difficulty varies from 2 – 5, and takes 2 days and a 1 night camp on the river bank.
  3. End Section: The last stretch usually includes both easier rafting and elephant rides. Some participants like to carry on to Sri Nan National Park where there is a nice view of the sunsets from a cliff overlooking the park.
