  Ketambe - Rafting Tour    
  Rafting the Alas River is a lot of fun for the young and the young at heart    
 
   
 

If you want to do something different do a rafting trip. It is possible to do it year round, but most water and strong rapids in the river you will have during the rainy season (march/april, september to november).

   
 

There are at least two different kind of doing a rafting trip.

   
 

The professional rafting tour with a rubber boat

   
 

Rafting - Start at the Guesthouse

 

Rafting - Stop at a village

   
  Start in Ketambe at the guesthouse   Stop for lunch at the village Tanjung    
 
For the professional rafting tour a special rubber boat is available.
All necessary equipment, like life jacket, helmet and paddel will be provided. And ofcourse an expirienced raft captain will be ready to guide you on the river rafting trip.
In general we offer one or two day rafting tours. In the rainy season its possible to do a rafting trip for 4 days to Gelombang. To organize the boat, the gear and the permission it takes at least one full day.
   
       
 
The local rafting tour with an "inner tube raft"
   
  Ketambe - Inner tube raft - preparing Ketambe - Inner tube rafting on the river  
 

The tour with the local, own constructed "inner tube raft" is a lot of fun.

It will be prepared from 5 inner tubes with an own wooden construction on it. Paddel, life vest and helmet will be provided. Two expirienced navigators will do this one day trip with you.
Don't worry, its not dangerous, even the self made construction looks a little like this. If you interested to do such a tour inform the stuff of the guesthouse at least a half day before you want to start.
Both tours can be combined with a stop at the village Tanjung Lama. Here you can visit a house of a local family. You will get a typical local meal and drink the water of a fresh coconut.

   
       
 
Single inner tube river riding
   
 

If you just want to do "river riding" or "wave hopping" with a single inner tube ... you can do it.

Ask the stuff of the guesthouse to give you a tube and walk about 15 minutes up river to Gurah.

There is a riverside place where you can start your ride easy.

  Ketambe - Innertube river ride    
 
After about 10 minutes you will pass the river beach of the guesthouse, where it is easy possible to get out. If you need any assistance ask the stuff. Kids of the village will like it to give you company.
