Bogowonto river, the newest tourism destination for water rafting in Central Java. Accompanying three rivers that have been recognized the lovers of rafting before, that is Elo river, Progo and Serayu. Our first event in January 2012, “RUSH BOGOWONTO” has started the adventure tourism at Bogowonto river.

Bogowonto river starting the flow in the western of mount Sumbing. The track of Bogowonto water rafting has length 25 kilometers from Wonosobo until Purworejo. This trip will be held on the lower section of Bogowonto river along 12.4 kilometers, with a duration for 3.5 hours. With medium grade (3-4), beginners can rafting here.

Variatif tracks here. The first 5 kilometers, was a rafting with fast tempo on a narrow river with many rapids that must be passed (rapid session). Nothing the calm flat flow here. Meanwhile, the last 5 kilometers were river rafting in a wide and flat cross section with many points of big and cool standing wave (standing wave session). Which make the journey so impressive is the Bogowonto riverside scenery, so naturally. Dominated by rice fields, forests and hills.

    Kebetulan saya orang desa Bener, Kec. Kepil Wonosobo. Di desa inilah terletak Jembatan sitretes yang pernah jadi starting point beberapa tim arung jeram. Dulu pernah ada mahasiswa Fak Teknik UGM dan Fak Psikologi UGM sekitar tahun 2012 yang datang kemari.

    Sebenarnya potensi kali bogowonto cukup besar, namun saat ini pemerintah baru menggarap potensi ikan air tawar melalui program DAS Bogowonto. Belum masuk ranah wisata… Barangkali tim equator indonesia berkenan untuk datang lagi ke desa saya. Kita bakal welcome dengan kunjungannya :D
