Telaga Waja vs Ayung River Rafting, Which one Better?

Bali whitewater rafting is one of the many outdoor activities available to the visitors & residents of this beautiful island. Rafting in Bali is an unforgettable experience whether for an individual, family or corporate group, also rafting in Bali is designed for all skills and ages. There are three main rivers rafting in Bali, (Melangit River Rafting, Telaga Waja River Rafting & Ayung River Rafting) but I can only but recommend Ayung River & Telaga Waja River.


  1. First thing first, Ayung River & Telaga Waja is more challenging than Melangit River
  2. Second last, rafting path in Melangit River is relatively short compared to Ayung & Telaga Waja
