WILD WATER RAFTING
"This was truly a breathtaking experience! I highly recommend it to anyone, especially if you have a love of nature. You don't need to be particularly adventurous or athletic to do it either, it is mostly a serene cruise through lush rainforests. I loved stopping near the waterfall to stand beneath it! Looking through pictures now, the scenery still blows me away. Rain or shine, just try it!! "

From a travel blog:
"We enjoyed a great day from the moment we were picked up from our hotel to our return. The road trip take a couple of hours, depending on the traffic, then on arrival in the Ubud area it is time to put on your life jackets and helmets then walk down a few steps to the river bank (50 or so however some are a little larger than standard). With four to a raft and the essential rudder man you are away down the river.
The trip is easy yet fast enough for fun and when passing other rafts there is always the chance to splash each other. Near the end of the ride you will travel down a 4 metre drop that appears much scarier than it really is but brings screams from some of the more vocal young travelers. Finally you climb back out of the river valley to a quick shower and a hearty lunch that is provided before the journey back to your resort. ".
