Telaga Waja River

Bali, Indonesia

The Basics

Most Telaga Waja tours leave from offices in Ubud, although it is easy to book Telaga Waja rafting packages that include door-to-door round-trip transfers from hotels in south Bali and beyond, as well as a buffet lunch, a shower, and a towel. No experience is necessary to raft the river—while there are enough bumps to keep the adrenaline flowing, Bali is not Colorado. A few Telaga Waja tours combine rafting with activities such as Jet Skiing, parasailing, or ATV riding.

Telaga Waja Rafting and Bali ATV Ride Packages
The Company turned up earlier than expected for pick up and was great ! The water rafting was fun, however note that there is about 300 large steps down to the river and 150 on the way back up. Good leg work out ! The meal supplied was great. Next onto the ATV tour, this was awesome fun, don't forget to bring a spare change of clothes expect to get very muddy. There are showers and towels at the end. I would recommend this tour and company. Thanks for a great day !

Telaga Waja White Water Rafting - With No Step or Stair : Bali Best Adventures
At 50 and 55 we worried about doing this with our youngest son. But it was amazing. We had the most amazing time and the waterfalls where so beautiful. First time I have ever stood under a waterfall with it pounding on my helmet. Our guide was brilliant and laughed so much with us and at us. I absolutely recommend this trip BUT wear shoes the little bit of walking you do has sharp rocks etc and makes it hard to walk. Definitely a most do for everyone.

How to Get There

The Telaga Waja River starts in Karangasem, east Bali, on the slopes of Mount Abang, and enters the sea at Klungkung. The rafting route starts around half an hour’s drive from Ubud, and there is no public transport. It would be unusual to drive to the Telaga Waja River; most either start from tour company offices in Ubud or book a tour that includes round-trip transfers.

When to Get There

The rainy season (roughly November to April) is the best time to raft the Telaga Waja River, when the water is at its highest and the rapids at their most dramatic. The river is still raftable during the dry season, but the rapids are lower and the ride slower.

Should I Raft the Telaga Waja River or the Ayung River?

Both of Ubud’s major rafting rivers have their own charms. The Telaga Waja offers a faster, bumpier ride with more continuous white water and a chance to shoot the dramatic dam. The Ayung River is a little more sedate—although it still has rapids—with spectacularly beautiful scenery courtesy of the jungled gorge it runs through.
