Before the occurrence of the bono wave, it is usually started by the sound of whistling, and then will hear a roar of water. The roar will grow louder and louder and it will appear the one big wave called as the bono wave. The speed of the bono wave can reach 40 km/h. The waves are able to enter the river upstream for kilometers away.




Even, water waves can reach a distance of about 60 km upstream and will end in Tanjung Pungai. The number of bono wave is pretty much and hand in hand. Sometimes, they are on the edge of the river and sometimes can also occur in the middle of the river. The biggest bono will usually occur when the rainy season arrives, when the water discharge of Kampar River will rise. In the account of months usually will occur in November and December.

Bono waves that exist in Kampar River will usually occur during high tides happen at the sea. The tide will go through to Kampar River. Furthermore the speed of currents in Kampar River will have a collision with the rising tide of the sea so that there was a wave called ‘bono wave’. Bono will only arise if the water gets high tides; the greater tide occurs at sea, so the chances to occur the bono wave will be greater. The rain factors that will also increase the discharge of river water will affect the amount of the bono wave formed.

Bono waves will usually occur at the mouth of the river that condition is wide and shallow then narrowed after being in the river. The shape of the mouth of the river that closes is like the letter "V" or funnel. Next, it will be supported by a shallow river conditions due to natural erosion. The meeting of the two currents of the river and the sea at this location would cause Bono Wave.

Then, they relax heading into the Malacca Strait. That is why when the dark of moon and the low tide, bono is not found in the two rivers. If the moon will rise, bono will back to their place, and then play goes up in Kampar River and Rokan River. Getting the full moon in the sky, bono will be more enjoying to go and back in both rivers.
