I have a confession to make. I’m an adrenaline junkie. I love doing exhilarating things that makes my heart beat wildly and I would always jump at the opportunity of doing extreme sports. I discovered with pleasure that Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre is a place that offers such things.
One of the exhilarating, adrenaline pumping thing that we did during our stay at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre was river tubing. Tubing is a recreational activity where an individual rides on top of an inner tube, either on water, snow, or through the air. One could easily mistake that it’s a relaxing thing, but it’s definitely not. It was far from a cruise along the river. It was actually a bumpy ride. I don’t really have much pictures of our tubing activity as it was really a rough ride and I could barely hold the camera throughout the bumps but managed to capture some of the moments with my waterproof, shockproof Nikon Coolpix S33. Here’s sharing the moments with you. Yes. My son tagged along too, and I’m so proud of him.
First, we were given a tube, a helmet and a lifejackets to wear. And then, our instructor guided us upstream where the river flows from top to bottom.
Helmets and lifejackets is absolutely necessary to avoid any unwanted injuries and incidents as the river flows really fast and it was really deep too. There are chances of you being thrown off from the tube, even when you hold onto it tightly.
See what I mean? Take a close look on this picture. Focus on the guy who is wearing yellow shirt. He is our tourism officer from Tourism Malaysia Selangor, Fendi.
This is not the first time he went tubing and yet he still get thrown off from his tube.
It may look easy, but it’s pretty tough.
But all is good. There are rope lines for you to cling to if the ride is too fast for you.
Many opt to cling to the rope.

If you are wondering whether it is safe or not, don’t worry. There are marshalls stationed at each points, and they keep a really good eye on you. You’re definitely in good hands.
If my son who is just 10 years old can do it, you got no excuse not to do it. It’s all about attitude and taking challenges with a pinch of salt.

We managed to go for two rounds of river tubing but it was getting dark, so instead of going for the third, we called it a day and just frolick in the river instead.

And what’s Tourism Malaysia Selangor trip without having picnic in the river?
We did it in Eco Murai Rimba at Batang Kali, and we did it again at Kalumpang Resort and Training Centre. It’s our trademark. A must do thing when we ventured to any rivers in Malaysia.
One for the album. A killer modeling pose for #selfiewefieTMSel before we dragged our shrivelled self to the hut where our host has graciously prepared teatime snacks for us.
