This part of the river is commonly skip by some of the visitors, instead they walk and ride the boat after the rapids. Boating in a raging rapids using an ordinary wooden boat is another firsts to our experience.

 White water rafting usually used rubber boat, when colliding with  big rocks it remain safe, collision also added more fun.  Boating in a raging rapids using an ordinary wooden boat is another firsts to our experience.  The strong rapids of the water literally rattled our body. LOL

 After the two rapids, the river is extra-ordinary calm.

River cruising is not part of our itinerary created by PH First  Continuing the whole  river adventure added another hours in our stay in place, where other activities of the day may suffers.

 Going back is a sacrifice  for the Bogador (boat man), paddling against the flow of the river is strenuous , they get down  and push the boat to bring back the visitors in the river bank.
