The tour starts with picking you up and then an hour of transfer to the Da Don Village. During the transfer journey, you can look at the scenic views on the way. Once we reach the village, we will get to the starting point immediately and start preparing for the rafting activities. Our professional guides will brief you on safety, procedures and techniques of rafting. After everyone is geared up and ready, hop on your rafts and get ready for an exciting adventure! This Da Don River encompasses rapids which are graded at class II to III. You will be using 2 man kayak style raft to navigate through this exciting river.
The first rapid that you will face is a Class 2 which will immediately challenge your calmness and skills as you avoid some of the huge rocks in the river. Upon finishing this part of rapids, you will be greeted by one of the two waterfalls on this trip. You will be required to portage the raft through the waterfall and then jump into the river 6 metres below. Then, you will get back into your raft and continue to follow the rapids of the river that brings you to follow the river flow. As your raft slowly rolls over the rapids, take some time to enjoy the beautiful sceneries at both sides of the river. Not long after, you will reach a coffee plantation area where once again you will need to portage the raft over the waterfall. Next, a series of intense rapids greets us vigorously as you battle to navigate your raft. Alas, you will reach a 3-kilometre flat section of the river.
After some rest in this calmer part of the rafting, brace yourself to meet the most intense section of the trip which is a huge section of class III rapids followed by a series of class II rapids. This section will definitely let your adrenaline pumped as non-stop action will be going on through the river. After this, you will compete for this 11 kilometres rafting activity through the Da Don River. We will have lunch at the riverside in picnic style and wait for our vehicle to meet us for the transfer back to Dalat.
