Photographer's Note

Another photo from my rafting experience in Bali. Yesterday photo was taken when we had a short stop. As we were completely wet during the ride, I had to leave my camera and smartphone on the bus and I took with me only Samsung mobile. In result, the photos are not so good. In the best thrilling moments, I had no camera.
The river, the longest in Bali, flows through a dense tropical forest. What was interesting, that there were sculpted reliefs on the rocks just above the water. Something similar as I saw near Angkor Wat. It is a pity I couldn't take any pictures. The ride was just fun. We splashed water on each other like kids. Sometimes we landed on the rocks and couldn't go further. We had to jump in the pontoons.

The Ayung river is the widest and longest river in Bali. Following the International Scale for River Difficulty, there are six grades of difficulty in white water rafting. Each grade is numbered to describe the conditions of the strength of streams, expected waves, rocky conditions, expected drops-offs and individual skill levels ability to maneuver through the river.

Classified as class II and III in the dry the season, means that the Ayung has some rough water, some rocks, small drops, but poses no considerable danger. Skill levels here range from basic paddling with some experience in rafting will suffice for the journey. In the rainy season, however, when the water-level rises, the Ayung is classified as class IV, having medium large waves and needing better skills to maneuver the sharp bends when needed.

The Ayung’s white water rafting trail offers a 10 kilometers route that will need 1,5 – 2 hours to meander through. But those hours are going to fly so fast since you will forget the time as you are having a great time in the adventure. Here are the top reasons why you must try to put on those safety gear, get on the raft and start paddling!

In Workshop, another photo , taken by my friend who had protection for the smartphone.
