Kundalika River Rafting overview

Kundalika river rafting

The Kundalika River is a usually serene river that flows through Kolad in Maharashtra. It is surrounded by green fields and lush forests and the weather is cool and pleasant for most months of the year.

Every morning the Kundalika River is fed with excess water released from the Bhira dam, turning it into a seething, frothing beast for a couple of hours. This is when you will be rafting on the river, battling rapids generated by the gushing water. There are rapids of Grade II and III along a 13kms stretch. When you’re safely past the rapids, your guide will allow you to jump in the water for a refreshing swim.

Every weekend (and weekdays), travellers and adventure seekers from Mumbai and Pune visit here to experience Kundalika river rafting and enjoy the weather.

Types of Rapids on the Kundalika River

The Kundalika river rafting starts in the morning when the water released from the dam turns it ferocious with rapids. There are different levels of rapids that this thrilling experience will take you through, from Grade II to Grade III. With moderate rapids and slightly stronger waves, Grade II rapids are a great way to work on your manoeuvring skills.

Grade III rapids have rougher waters, with high waves and sudden drops, making it more challenging. When you're entering these rapids, be sure to follow the instructions of your instructors and always be alert. Your whole rafting experience will last for about 2 hours.

One day rafting package

You can book a one-day rafting package in Kolad to get the most out of your adventure in a day. Arrive at Kolad by 8 am so you'll be on time for your rafting session. You can choose between an only rafting package or a package that includes lunch at a nearby campsite.

Only rafting package is the most economical choice but a rafting package that includes lunch would be the better option as you'll be hungry after your rafting session and there aren't many restaurants around. You can also opt for packages that include adventure activities at the campsite, for an entire day of fun.

Kundalika river rafting with an overnight stay

There are a number of scenic campsites located on the banks of the Kundalika River in Kolad or in the middle of the hills. Depending on your group size, you can choose from Swiss tents, cabins, caravans, rooms, cottages or dorms. You'll enjoy warm bonfire nights, eat delicious buffet meals and sleep comfortably in the midst of nature. The next day, you'll embark on your thrilling rafting adventure and try your hand at different adventure activities.
