Water rafting in Sungai Sedim, Kedah

Adventurous sports have always been my favorite past time. Other than water rafting and jungl tracking, and all campin stuff...

However, rafting is so much easier than wind surfing. It is very safe and no technical skills are needed. All you need is some energy for paddling. The rest is simply following instructions from the skipper...too tired really uh..

I went out about Sungai Sedim with frieands and lecture with is do learning program. Apparently, the place is popular for team building activities for workers from nearby Kulim High Tech Industrial Park. Before this, I have visited the place a couple of time simply for relaxing in the river and mostly i lke sea water. I was excited about the discovery because it means I don’t have to travel far for rafting anymore. Before this, the nearest rafting place for me was Sungai Betong, near Sri Aman at Sarawak.

The journey takes less than 50km via bus USM. White water rafting in Sungai Sedim is managed by Rapid Fire Adventure SDN. BHD. There are 2 routes to choose from. One is the full route (5-6 hours) and the other is short route (1 hour). We took the short route because the full route need to have at least 8-10 people.

Before we began our little adventure, we were briefed by the guides of few basic stuffs such as proper technique to hold the paddle and how to use it. We also had to go through a session of water confidence by leaping into the water from a rock which is more than 15 feet high.We went for tubing before going back. One thing is don’t under estimate tubing in Sungai Sedim because I got more bruises from tubing than from rafting. You need to wear life vest and helmet when tubing in Sungai Sedim. At that continue trip to thrill of Tree Top Walk. The thrill and excitement of walking some 30 metres above ground level into the treetops is a spectacular attraction though not for the faint-hearted as a peep down might make you a bit dizzy.
