The plan for Da Lat white water rafting & countryside tour

Da Lat white water rafting & countryside tour is an amazing and challenging tour for whom in love with sporty trip. In this tour, tourists will have a chance to explore beautiful and unique landscape of Dalat which is, a fantastic stretch of the Da Don River with Class 2, and 3 rapids. The combination of visiting the landscape and taking part in extreme sport is a fantastic experience for both national and international tourists.

Da Lat white water rafting & countryside tour starts at 8:00 am every day. Tourists can request the tour guide for pick up at the hotel or come to the gathering place themselves. Then, we will spend about 1 hour to move to Da Don Village, where the river runs through. Once we get to our starting point, we will inflate the rafts. Then, the tour guide will provide some information, basic instruction and necessary techniques to make sure the tourists know how to board the rafts as well as solve the accidental problems. 2 man kayak style rafts will be used to navigate the river as they provide better maneuverability and allow us to run through the river even when the water level is low.

The first challenge that we encounter is a Class 2, which will quickly excite the tourists and right after that, we continue to face up to the first of the 2 waterfalls on the trip. We will control the rafts through the waterfall and then jump 6 meters to the river below.

In the next section of the river, tourists will face up to the lower class of water with continuous rapids that roll through the stunning countryside. After getting through the river, we will come to the next area and visit a fantastic coffee plantation. To get through this area, we need to portage the raft through to avoid the 2nd of the waterfalls on this trip.

In the next part of the Da Lat white water rafting & countryside tour, we have another series of intense and continuous rapids before coming to 3km final flat section. Great photo ops are available as we paddle through this calmer section of the river. After that, we will take a small break.

After that, continue with the most intense part of the trip. In this, we need to go through a Class 3 rapid which is immediately followed by several Class 2 rapids. Then we come to finish our 11 kilometers adventure of the mighty Da Don River.

A welcome lunch spot is set up right alongside the river so tourists can enjoy good meals whenever they want. Lunch will be prepared in picnic style with fresh fruits and vegetables. After, we can take a rest and enjoy the remoteness of the place before our vehicle meets us for the 1 hour transfer back to Dalat.
