  • Trip introduction

    Gather your gang of friends and embark on this 2-day rafting trip to Kolad where you'll get to battle Grade- III+ rapids of the Kundalika River and spend a night in a cosy Hobbit House with all your friends. You'll get to engage in a 12 km long rafting session on the second day, and take a relaxing dip in the river at the end of it. You'll also get to explore the gorgeous landscape of Kolad and spend two days at a farm which is surrounded by lush greenery.

    Destination

    Every morning, the massive gates of the Bhira Dam are opened, turning the relatively calm Kundalika River into a gushing body of water. Rafting over this gushing river is truly a thrilling experience. During the summer season, the landscape of Kolad is dry and brown, but the river banks are always lush green. During the monsoon season, the landscape turns radiant green which contrasts dramatically with the dark grey skies. And during the winter season, you wake up to misty mornings, and end the day with cold nights.

    On this trip, you'll be staying in an innovative Hobbit House, which is inspired from the Lord of the Rings series, and designed with an Indian aesthetic. It is made of local laterite stone which is known for its cooling properties along with vegetation on the roof which helps keep the temperatures down. This hobbit house can accommodate up to 10-12 adults and is a perfect choice for a large group of friends and family.

    • Go river rafting over the gushing Kundalika River.
