NOTE: Laonong White Water Rafting no longer operates after the typhoon disaster in Aug 2009.
To get to Laonong White Water Rafting, you will have to drive along Provincial Route 27 to BoaLai. The Rafting company is located at the Northern part of town.
They provide life-jackets and helmets. Footwear is necessary and no flip-flop otherwise they have China made wet water shoes for NT100 which is not too bad.
They are very strict with safety, kids below 12 are not allowed. They thought my son was below that cause he was too short for his age.
We had the prvillage to raft with Kaohsiung County Mayor's wife. She was there because Boalai was holding a Triathlon the next day.
This is my third time rafting in Taiwan and my second in Laonong River. I must say this is the best rafting I experience. Piror to the activities, Southern Taiwan had been raining for a few days and the Typhoon was coming up from the South. The River was just perfect for 17km of white water rafting that day.
