  • Trip introduction

    Gather your friends and family and embark on this 2-day rafting adventure to Kolad where you'll get to battle the rapids of the gushing Kundalika River when the gates of Bhira Dams are opened. You'll raft through Grade-II to Grade-III+ rapids and if you want you can even take a swim in the river at the end of the rafting session.

    You'll be treated to the breathtaking scenery of the river making its way through lush greenery with the Sahyadris in the backdrop. You'll spend two days in a large dormitory of a gorgeous eco-resort with your friends and family.

    Destination

    Every morning, the massive gates of the Bhira Dam are opened, turning the relatively calm Kundalika River into a gushing waterbody. 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 a dormitory at a beautiful eco-resort which can accommodate 15-20 adults, making it a perfect choice for larger groups. The walls are the dormitory are embellished with beautiful Warli paintings, and the room comes with AC and comfortable bedding.
