      Padas River is situated in the interior of south western part of Kota Kinabalu that is only accessible by train (used since the late 19th century in Borneo). Basically, this trip will give you two experiences – a thrill to have a ride on an antique train and the rush excursion covering a distance of 9 km of this rather muddy 200 km river that holds 7 exciting and tough rapids! These rapids carries amusing names such as Merry-Go-Round Rapid, Break Point Rapid, Scooby Doo Rapid, Cobra Rapid, Curve Rapid, Lambada Rapid and Head Hunter Rapid. Each rapid will give you the feel of the motion as what the name means.
