          Hi,

          Well, since it’s a new rafting operator or just launch.
          They have not much visitor. So, no session.
          You can do anytime. As long your activity between 7.00 am – 2.00 pm.
          Also this rafting activity depend on the weather.
          Since the level water and the current not high and strong, it’s still safe.
          Otherwise, the operator will not allow you to do rafting.

          Regards.

      Hello,

      I just text the Top rafting operator.
      Here the answer of your questions:
      1. Yes you can as long Progo river not in flood condition. Normally it happen in rainy season.
      2. It take two hours rafting adventure.
      3. IDR 350 per pax.
      4. The price not include the transport service (pick up & drop off Hotel).
      5. The price include the lunch.

      Unfortunately, today is peak of dry season.
      The water level on Progo river is so limited.
      Thus, it become problem for rafting in Progo river today.
      I suggest you to do rafting at Elo river.
