    Destination

    Kolad, a popular getaway destination for travellers from Mumbai and Pune, is a small village on the banks of the Kundalika River, known for excellent adventures in river rafting. The monsoon rain water, pouring over the surrounding Sahyadri hills, pools together into a reservoir at the nearby Bhira Dam. Every morning, water from the dam is released into the Kundalika River, giving rise to thrilling rapids with twists and turns.

    At the campsite, located on the banks of the Sutarwadi Reservoir, you'll be staying in wooden cottages that come with a comfortable bed with pillows and blankets, air-conditioner and an attached washroom. This package also includes delicious, buffet meals served at the common dining area.
