Adventurous rafting on the Kundalika River

The river is usually serene, and feeds the fields and greenery around. However, every morning, excess water from Bhira dam is released into the river, turning the river into a seething, churning beast for a couple of hours. This is when you’ll be river rafting in Kolad, enjoying a 13 kms stretch with rapids of Grade II and III. When you’re safely past the rapids, your guide will allow you to jump in the water for a swim (with life jackets on).

Carry sunscreen, a change of clothes, a light towel, and sunglasses and a cap for the day’s adventure activities.
