Rappelling Adventure

Dao Waterfalls is the perfect place to start your canyoneering adventure. After the safety briefing, we enter the gorge above the falls in classic canyoneering style by jumping and rappelling straight down 30 meters to Dao Falls! From there we follow the stream going down with a couple more rappells. We love to help our guests push their personal limits while having a fantastic time!

Canyoneering is an adventure sport that combines multiple outdoor adventures traversing a canyon or gorge by combining hiking, jumping, sliding, climbing, swimming, and/or rappelling.

Like any other adventure sport, canyoneering involves an element of risk especially when ropes are involved. To control it, we have professional experienced guides and UIAA-certified safety equipment. All clients are obliged to strictly follow the instructions of our guides.
