One of many rapid at Slim River "more photos"

Slim River Rafting, Slim River is a small town in Perak, Malaysia. It is about 100 km (driving time 45 minutes) from Kuala Lumpur. It is situated in the southern part of Perak and is 20 km north of Tanjung Malim. It is about 100km (driving time 1hour) from Ipoh. Slim River is the second biggest town in Tanjung Malim district. The town is surrounded by many small villages.

History
The name of the town was given by the river beside the town which call Sungai Slim. Slim River was a military strategic mid-point from North to South of Malaya during World War II. It was the site of a major battle during World War II between the Japanese and British forces which consisted of troops from India, Nepal, Australia and Great Britain. The British lost the Battle of Slim River to the Japanese forces, who were equipped with tanks. The Japanese also had total air superiority. In their defeat at Slim River, the British suffered heavy casualties and many units were cut off from their line of retreat. The battle effectively ended British hopes of defending Malaya.

Slim River Rafting General Info

Do's and Don'ts

Safety Briefing

Do Not Litter
Bring All Rubbish Out Of  the Raft.
Do Not Damage Any Plants Or Trees
Do Not Make Excessive Noise
Stay Healthy.
Do Not Take Unnecessary Risks Like Climbing Up Rocks.
Always Listen To Advise Given By Your  Guides.
Do Not Stay Away From The Group, you can easily get lost.

A detailed safety briefing will be conducted before each trip. The rafting team for the trip explains what to do if the raft flips, how to help each other out of the water and what conditions to expect.

We always give the worst-case scenario so that people know what to expect from the trip and, therefore, have the choice to forego their trip after the safety talk. Once in the raft, you are instructed by your rafting guide as to how to negotiate the rapids and some practice is done before you set off. You are also briefed before each rapid on how the raft is expected to react.

Slim River Rafting Safety and Precaution

Rafting is safer then crossing road

We always ensure all the participants wear a life jacket.

We do not overload the raft.

We do not go rafting after/during a heavy rain.

Our guides are qualified and well trained.

We well know local weather conditions. We make sure the water and weather conditions are safe. Because water conducts electricity, it is wise to stop swimming, boating, or any activities on the water as soon as you see or hear lightning.

Slim River Practical Rafting Safety Tips

Rafting is safer then crossing road

All rafters will be given a safety briefing before the ride and will be shown basic backward and forward paddling techniques. Always check that the helmets and life jackets provided fit you well and are not too tight or too loose.

Your life jacket will buoy you in the eventuality of the raft overturning. If you've over-turned close to the river bank, don't use your raft paddle, as you may hit someone else. Do not attempt to use the paddle as a lever against rocks as you risk getting hit by it.

The following are some points to remember:

Bring a change of clothes. A warm-up jacket is also a good idea.

Wear well-fitting shoes, rubber shoes or sandals.

Jewellery which cannot be secured firmly should not be worn while rafting.

Those wearing glasses are reminded to use an elastic sports band to anchor their spectacles.

Contact lens users are advised to wear spectacles instead, in order to cut down the risk of their lenses getting contaminated by river water.
