Get out of the city and put yourself at the mercy of the Kundalika river this weekend! You'll raft for a long 14 kms stretch, amidst the lush forests, sped along by the gushing waters of the Mulshi and Bhira dams. You'll have expert instructors to guide you through the Grade II and III rapids, but there are some peaceful stretches where you can lean on your oars and admire the views, or even take a dip in the water.
Perfect for a day getaway or a thrilling activity on a weekend trip, rafting the white waters will be a unforgettable experience. This is a fun adventure that is only a short drive away from Mumbai or Pune city.
Kolad used to a be a small, peaceful town along the Kundalika river, until it was discovered to be one of the best places for rafting in Maharashtra. Rafting here is not weather-dependent, as the massive Bhira dam gates are opened every morning, turning the relatively serene river into a body of churning water. Adventurers from everywhere flock to Kolad to enjoy the tropical forests around and the pleasant water.
The Western Ghats around Kolad turn from dry brown to a lush green paradise in the monsoon, with morning mists and rain clouds floating by, and a host of wildlife and birds.
