Gunung Leuser the Rainforest Rafting
 
Rafting and kayaking is possible on the Alas river from the village of Agusan down to the city of Gelombang, close to the Indian ocean. In the upper areas of the Alas several rapids are demanding a good performance. The boat is passing pristine rainforest and many wildlife can be seen, especially monkeys and a big variety of beautiful rich coloured birds.

Rafting on this part of the river strongly depends on water level.

From north of Ketambe, at the junction of Gurah River, we have sufficient water level all over the year. From there to Kutacane we operate our day-rafts, 3 – 6 hours. Starting the float, for 1 hour you pass the canopy of pristine rainforest, the research station at Ketambe, then you are floating for hours through area, covered with rainforest and plantations. You will see lot of birdlife, especially hornbills and kingfisher, as well as Maquaque.

Our long-distance rafts start at Mora Situlen, south of Kutacane and end at Gelombang. The water is rather quite and we call this part of the trip jungle-Safari. Nevertheless we pass also great scenery of pristine jungle.

Before Gelombang plantations start and mix with forest. On rafting-trips longer than one day we sleep in tents on the shore of the Alas river, having BBQ in the evenings. 

On request our rafting-trips can be interrupted at junction of several rivers and we can do trekking for several days middle in nowhere.

Starting April 2010 we operate with brandnew boat SI Rahung from www.boogieadvindo.com.
