Your day begins with a drive to Datanla Waterfall. If it’s your first time to try canyoning, don’t fret. Upon arrival to the gathering station, there will be a briefing on the basics of canyoning. You will learn the necessary skills to safely navigate your way down the canyon, including abseiling, jumping, and sliding under professional supervision. Once you are ready to go, the first activity would require you to abseil 18 meters down a dry cliff. Then there would be a lot of water sliding, cliff jumping, and more abseiling. The highlight of this adventure is the “washing machine”. This is a bit more challenging than the previous abseiling you have done as the water can hit you and spin you around which can leave you disoriented. But there’s no other way out than to trust and let go. If adrenaline rush is what you seek, this is the perfect day for you. To complete the adventure, hike back up to the highway where the car is waiting.
