Central Java, Rafting, Progo River


The downstream of Progo River is positioned on the valley located between two sky-reaching mountains, Sindoro and Sumbing. The water flows swiftly to the south especially in the rainy season. The river separates two provinces, Central Java and Yogyakarta. Even in a normal condition the river wave is categorized as fairly extreme, ranging from class 2 to 4. The entry point can be started from a number of locations.

The first point is from Kyai Langgeng Park in Magelang, the second entry is Tempuran Bridge in the Magelang Regency, the third is Borobudur, Mendut, and the fourth entry spot being Klangon Bridge.

The exploration usually lasted in the DAM Ancol, approximately 40 km from Yogyakarta. The most challenging part is usually located between Klangon Bridge and DAM Ancol with 3 hours reaching time. Every explorer must be careful with the sudden high of water volume due to the heavy rain since it could lead to severe flood.
