Kasembon Rafting, Malang-East Java

I love nature and adventure, so last weekend me and friends went to Kasembon, Malang Regency for rafting. For me this is the second time i tried this sport.

Kasembon is located in Malang, close to the border to Kediri regency. The route to reach Kasembon from Surabaya is very easy.
Surabaya - Mojoagung, Mojokerto - Ngoro - Kandangan - Kasembon.This trip will takes 2-2,5 hours.
And to return to Surabaya we can take the route from Kasembon to Malang, which can give you nice scenery along the trip.

Kasembon is a nice village with sawah (rice paddy) and nice people. And you can enjoy gazebo if you want to stay there. Each Gazebo's capacity is for 4 people and there are 8 gazebos available there.

For me it is such an amazing experience to do white water rafting as a beginner. I have never ever tried this before.
The sources of Sumberdandang River of Kasembon are cisterns, one of the cisterns is Selorejo Cistern. So even on dry season, the river is representative for rafting as the debt can be adjusted.
Kasembon rafting has 7.5 km rafting route. For beginners.. they can finish the route for 2 hours. And it has 5 canals with 2 to 3 meters, with 2nd and 3rd grade difficulty that fits either pro or beginner. And other advantages of the routes are the nice scenery along the river with farmers, green paddies, and people bathing. If you raft in the late afternoon, you can see beautiful sunset from the back of mountain. Have you ever thought of doing rafting at night? night rafting is available at Kasembon during dry season.

First opened on December 9th 2006, now this rafting site is getting more popular and visited by domestic and foreign visitors. Opened by Mr Sujudi , Malang City Mayor. Now it is completed with Gazebo, Souvenir Shop, Mushola and catering is also available here.

Usually tourist go rafting after trekk to Mt Bromo. Get tour operator for this kind of tour.
