ASAHAN RIVER FESTIVAL
EXTREME KAYAK CHAMPIONSHIPS
The Asahan Valley is a tropical paradise lost in time with consistent world class whitewater.
Northern Sumatra is home to one of the most amazing, friendly and breath taking rivers on the planet - the Asahan. Flowing from the legendary Toba Caldera (the only super volcano to have erupted in human history) the Asahan has a short but exciting course before it reaches the Ocean in the Malacca straight. Hydro Electricity projects in the late 60's have resulted in the river having constant water levels on the Class 5 to 3 white water sections that cover over 30 km.
The Asahan is a whitewater paradise with warm water, exotic bird life, you can even expect to be chased down the the river by large primates such as Gibbons and monkeys. Accommodation throughout the festival will be in a small riverside village , we will be eating Indonesian food predominantly sourced from the valley. This is the wild side of Asia and an authentic adventure.
