Prepare for thrills all around if you want to try river rafting. One of the best and most popular destinations in India to try rafting is in Maharashtra. You’ll also find pleasant cottage options to stay at if you’re thinking about a weekend getaway rafting in Maharashtra. Here are some of the packages if you want to try river rafting in Maharashtra.
River rafting in Maharashtra: Day trip to Kolad
When it comes to river rafting in Maharashtra, Kolad is the ideal destination. Once a peaceful fishing village, it was discovered it has some of the fiercest white water rapids in Maharashtra. Kolad is located in the midst of the Western Ghats, surrounded by paddy fields, lush forests, and rolling hills. Every day of the year, water is released from the Bhira dam, and the slow Kundalika River turns fierce with the gushing water. This is when you'll be rafting! You’re going to be facing rapids of up to 13 kms. A typical package for river rafting in Maharashtra also includes activities like kayaking, ziplining, and other fun outdoor activities.
River rafting in Maharashtra: Weekend rafting in Kundalika River
River rafting in Kolad is not weather-dependent, as the 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 challenge the river and enjoy the tropical forests, especially during the weekends.
Hop into the river for a refreshing dip, and bask in the wonders of Mother Nature, as you escape the hustle and bustle of the city life. The weekend river rafting packages in Maharashtra are generally a little bit more expensive, due to popular demand.
River rafting in Maharashtra: Weekend river rafting with cottage stay
Kolad has a few picturesque campsites, some spread over 50 acres of land, located in the midst of hills or alongside the river. Snug in the lush greenery and fresh beauty of Kolad, you’ll want to never return to the chaos of the city. After battling Grade II to IV rapids, you can cozy it up in the cottages.
You can choose to book day trips for only rafting and meals, or you can book overnight packages to stay in delightful cottages or dorms or Swiss tents. You’ll enjoy lavish buffet meals, go rafting, try your hand at all kinds of adventure activity, and absorb all of nature.
What to carry for river rafting in Maharashtra
Carry sunscreen, a change of clothes, a light towel, and sunglasses and a cap for the day’s adventure activities. If you’re staying overnight, do make sure you carry light, long-sleeved clothing for the evenings, and insect repellent.
Best season for river rafting in Maharashtra
The monsoon is one of the best times to come down to try river rafting in Maharashtra. Kolad turns from a dry brown riverside village to a lush green paradise, presenting you also with a host of wildlife and birds. The river is wild and any rafting trip is a complete thrill!
nice enjoyed a lot my kids were happy a lot wanna go one more time…
it was great and so thrilled experience.
We recently experienced river rafting which was book through The Great Next, since it was a very spontaneous plan we had less than a day’s time to plan. But Dhanraj from The great next helped us throughout to find the right plan on immediate basis. The Rafting was conducted by highly professional guide. (Haresh from Wilder west adventures) Very happy with the service and experience.
Great experience with TGN for the kolad river rafting. Special thanks to Dheeraj who helped me out with good package in reasonable price.
its great service n management guys are really helpful.. wanna go river rafting in kolad.. these guys r d best
One of the best adventure provider for Kolad rafting.
It was an amazing experience to go rafting in Kolad. Thanks to The Great Next team and Dhanraj for organizing it in such a pleasant way. And our guide "Estin" was the best. ?
the great next adventures are the best....no fake promises....i had been to kolad and everything at the place was same as shown, no deception at all. also thanks to dhanraj for guiding through out.
I randomly visited the site and booked wilder west resort,kolad. The resort was really nice n the food was homemade n good. Rafting and other activities were delivered as promised in the package. The staff were verry friendly and helpful. Service was quick n on time. I am extremely impressed wth TGN. AND like to special thanks to Ms. Tanvi. She assisted us and help us at the last moment booking. We enjoyed a lot , thanks to TGN TO made it happen had a grt job
This is ajay here. An adrenaline junkie. Recently I was looking for my fix. Dhanraj from the great next helped me out greatly. I decided to go to kollard for river rafting. Since it was my first time goin there and that too a solo trip on bike i had a ton of questions but he was very sincere and patient in answering( I kept harrasing him for hours and even postponed the trip once). As with anywhere else in India the prices on the spot are always jacked up but to my surprise I got a great package customized to my requirements for a modest price? after goin there I realized I was actually paying the least among all other guests (Especially those who sighed up with the player who's name begins with thrill?). The ride to kollard to pune is about 120km. While goin I went through devkund and tamini ghat. The roads dissolved in some sections . But overall the experience was totally worth it the Rollin hills, greenery, lazy waterfalls, the gentle turns on the ghat roads. On the way back I came through lonavala route. Again a thrill in its own way. We stayed in wilderwest in kollard. This was an amazing location. The best part? I had a huge some dorm reserved for myself?. Made good friends. The best part of solotrip is you go outta your comfort zone and turn all lotta stranger friends into Friends. The staff there were very polite and accommodating. If possible id Recomend to book the cottage overlooking the river. You won't regret it. One word of advice i got from dhanraj that really saved me was to be aware of mosquitos. I used odomers and man was that satisfying. Imma buy stocks of that now ?. Food was good and really felt homemade. Both veg and non veg available. Now the main part-rafting. the instructor amit was experienced. Himself an adrenaline junkie form uttarakhand. He told us (all newbies) the basics and a few neat tricks. Was a really fun dude. We managed to have fun and even rescue a few overboard fellows for other rafts. As for the kudakali river it was beautiful with an amazing lush green surroundings and clean waters. Though it didn't have much visibility. Temp was very cool with slight rains. My suggestion is if you want the proper rafting experience go in peak monsoon by an suv car to this place as it will be very comfortable and the waters currents will have the perfect speed for rafting. My experience was a lil lukewarm as I came after the season got over, fun nonetheless. Next was bungee jumping. A good starting point for beginners as the height Is moderate. I guess I'll just finish it here. Reached back pune via lonavala route. One word of advice to other roadtrippers- the trip will take 5-6 hours one way anyday so plan accordingly. And for a hassle free experience go with the great next. Ps: I'm planning my next scuba dive with these guys
It's just a great compnay for advancer activities I trip to kolad for rafting and it's really warth with very pocket friendly cost. Thank you so much.
They sent us a wrong location. Missed about 45Minutes of the rafting. Post booking, they did not even respond to messages. They outsource the rafting. Not their own
