Rafting in Borneo

After the conferance in Kota Kinabalu I arranged to go white water rafting with a few colleagues. I managed to lure Martin Hudson, Zhongwei Li and Jost Werdenhoff to join me in this adventure. We took a trip to Padas river organised by Borneo Adventures. The river is a grade 3 (out of a maximum dare devil 6).

We started the trip about 7:30 in the morning. We were picked up with a mini bus by our guide who told us that we had to catch up with the train we were going on since it had already left the station. This turned out to be quite easy since the train were doing about 35 k.p.h. The trin is the only one in Borneo, built by the old collonial administration and hardly upgraded after that.

Once on the trin we were in for a rather long and bumpy, but also rather scenic journey. We went about two hours on train before changing to another track that goes up the river gorge for another hour. We bought some snacks and fruit to keep us going.

Hmm, gotta go USA, finish later...
