Next is the Chicken Drop - the drop that pushes the raft down for it to float high before hitting a stone wall.. The makes the rafters more alert and ready to fact the last rapid, Second Canyon whose sheer size easily beats other earlier rapids... After the Second Canyon, the river floats on leisurely into tamer rapids before taking off at Gahau Waterfall...
