    Amazing experience. The guys are very professional and much concern on our safety. The whole journey on water was almost 3 hours and we are lucky enough to have 5 big currents. Highly recommended and best of value.

What To Expect

The Hsiukuluan River provides some of Taiwan's best rafting, challenging participants with a range of rapids to navigate. The rapids are a reasonable level for beginners, but swift enough to provide a thrill. The varied route will have you transitioning between paddling ferociously, holding tight as you plunge down a rapid and sitting back to appreciate the spectacular scenery you're passing through. You'll journey through rocky ravines with a backdrop of impressive mountainous scenery before ending on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Take your pick of raft types for varying degrees of comfort and excitement! Run by a company with years of experience and led by a friendly professional instructor, safety is paramount—but they don't skimp on the fun!

    The tour group and activity organizers were great. It’s a great ride by coach through the mountains with drop off and pick up st the start and end. Would get more stars is this was an actual rafting adventure. Please note that a professional will not be in the boat with you, meaning your are fending for yourself. When you get to drops (there’s no more than category 2) they professionals will be in motorized rafts and will love you away or help you steer by nugding your boat. Once you team gets too tired, they just drag you down the river. The purpose is not to actually paddle as a team and make it through, its to splash each other until ppl get too tired and too cold to raft. We were in a boat with 4 other gentlemen that was only wanting to show off and then smoke cigarettes in the middle of the river. I would not recommend as this seems more like a locals adventure for Taiwan individuals only. I’m lucky I’m fluent in mandarin because no one spoke English.

    The weather was great and the guides were very entertaining!

    Rafting on the river is fun, but there were some parts where the current was very weak. So the guides wanted to pull the rafts with a motorboat. We told them we would rather paddle and in some parts they let us.

    The tour is fun with the humor guides and the bus driver. They are really well explained about precautions and the safety instructions. No worries if you dropped into the water, the guides are all around with fast speedboat. Even you did not fall into the water, you will still get wet, every boat comes with a water scoop, everyone enjoys the water fight even you did not know each other under the hot sun. To complete the 21KM Ksiukuluan River, don't forget to bring along your bottle water and sunblock. Overall of the experience is good, the only things to improve is Klook or the operator should remind participants to wear long sleeves, long swimwear pants and wading shoes to protect yourself from an accident. Beside the registration counter, there is a store that you could lend or buy wading shoes for the activity with a reasonable cost.

    Peaceful rafting, not too tiring, just remember to put sunblock on exposed skin. However, there were people smoking on other rafts and that was the only downside.

    It is a really nice half day tour in the summertime. The driver was on time and pick us up from our hotel. There was not much rain before and the river is not strong enough. But it was still fun. The lunch box is also not bad. The Taiwan rice is really tasty.

    Booked with transfer at 11am. At 11am, water rafting company called and said for transfer it is 9am pick up, my record was without transfer. Too late to join the activity, they gave us another better activity but had to pay extra $50(5paxs) for transfer. Told Klook and they have refunded me.

    was a really fun activity but was expecting a bit more intense drops!! but would still recommend it either way.
  • Chun Ning 9 Jul 2018
    Really nice experience! It was well organized and all the staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed awesome senario beside the river, but it was a little pity that we didn’t bring the camera or cell phone to catch the view. Really recommend this to you!
