White Water rafting is conducted in Kundalika river in Kolad region which is located on Mumbai - Goa highway. It is the only available place close to Mumbai and Pune. It is also the only place in Maharashtra where Rafting is conducted throughout the year. Since this rafting stretch is located in between two dams, there is no sudden rise or decrease in water flows and hence it is one of the safest location. While covering the stretch of approximately 12Km we face about 7 rapids. There is one rapid of grade 3, two rapids of grade 2, four rapids of grade 1 and several bumpy rides.
This activity can be done by anyone beyond age of 14 years. This could be performed even by non swimmers. All safety equipments such as life jacket, helmet, oars are provided. There is River guide on every raft who guides you throughout the session. Every River guide has safety rescue line. These experts are trained on various rivers in India including Ganges.
Everyone should experience rafting atleast once, it is the experience of lifetime. Trekdi Tours and Adventures provides these services while thinking all your needs.
