White Water Rafting in Gopeng, Perak (Nomad Adventure) - Part 2

I assume you have read my earlier post, if not, go ahead and read else you will be so lost with this post. Very lost. Really lost. More lost than the TV series ‘Lost’. I kid you not.

Go. Read. Quick.

As I was saying earlier, as our raft carried and swayed us downstream, as we approach the end of our destination, something unexpected and unthinkable happened. A truly “Houston, we have a problem” scenario kinda a thing, a “Black Hawk down” experience, a “London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down…” scene #eh. I have experienced three white water rafting in three different state so far, but this time around is total different. Not the rafting, not the water but….

Thunder. We heard thunder again and again. And again. Worried.
Almost like scolding us, again and again too. Scared.
The dark clouds emerge. Panic.
The strong wind starts, brushing our face. Sei loh… sei loh… I murmured, hoping no one heard.

We paddled even stronger, now in unison. Not just us, all the other raft. Probably sharing the same thought, the same panic, the same fear.
I asked the instructor “Is it going to rain?”
“No, it’s at the other side. Don’t worry” He calms us.

But then, why is he paddling strong and fast too. Hemm….

Have you heard of kepala air? Water head? Yes, that’s the one that am worried of, as we are so close to the mountain. “Mana JPAM ni?” I said to myself, as if lah JPAM can stop the rain or the kepala air. Duh Lily! Well, at least it’ll made me feel better. With all their gadgets, equiptment and experience. I stand higher chance.

We managed to arrive safely at our destination where we were rushed to shower and change, fearing the rain and us arriving late for the Gala Dinner with Tourism Perak and the sponsors. Then I saw something I truly fancy – Nomad Adventure Earth Camp.

Angkat kain jemuran, hujan nak turun.

Ok. Itu jer nak cerita.
