The Song Phraek rafting trip is held at Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary; streams flow down from the “Kata Kwam” and “Ra Sung” Mountains in Phang-nga province. The rafting routes are about 5 km long with rapids at the difficulty level of 2-4 and beautiful green forests on both banks of the river. At the starting point, there is a dam built to regulate the water level for supporting local tourism; you can also do rafting even in the dry season. When the water is released from the dam, the adventure on the rapids will begin. Over 100 rafts are flown along the swift stream, the rafts hit the big rocks nearby continuously and this adds more fun. From the narrow stream to the wider stream, rafts are flowing wildly through the stream and bounce up, down and are sucked in a whirlpool but not for a long time because other rafts will then bump your raft out of the whirlpool. It takes about 45 minutes to finish the rafting and might be shorter during the dry season.
After kayaking alongside the stream, elephant trekking is highly recommended. You can indulge and see the nature in a different view from the top of an elephant including waterfalls in Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary.
