Whitewater Rafting

Although there are no large rivers on Phuket, nearby Phang Nga province is a good place to enjoy this eco-friendly adventure sport. Most rafting trips take place on the Khlong Song Phraek stream in the Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary, not far from Phang Nga Town.

The stream is quite narrow with a few boulders. The rapids are rated Class 2 and Class 3 using to the International Grading System. A lot of fun if you don’t mind getting wet but pretty tame if you have been whitewater rafting on larger rivers.

The trip is quite short, only taking about half a day. Most rafting trips to the area will usually include other activities such as elephant trekking or hiking to one of the waterfalls in the wildlife sanctuary.

Whitewater rafting in Phang Nga is available year round, though the rainy season, from June to November, is by far the best time to go.
