White Water Rafting at Kolad

Nothing we want is upstream!
GO with the flow!


White water rafting is a recreational outdoor activity which use an inflatable raft to navigate a river or other body of water. This is often done on whitewater or different degrees of rough water, and generally represents a new and challenging environment for participants. Dealing with risk and the need for teamwork is often a part of the experience

The Kundalika egged on by waters of the Bhira Dam is the ONLY ALL-YEAR white water rafting location in India. With Grade II & III rapids, it is a terrific introduction to White Water Rafting and the only option in the vicinity of Mumbai and Pune.

The Rafting starts with gearing-up followed by instructions by your Raft – Guide . Then ensues loading and a 12km raft in serene waters. You will laugh, scream or lose yourself in the madness from which you emerge 3 hours later. The rafting ends as you pull the raft onto land

  • Our Kolad campground is located just where the rafting ends. You may need transport to get to the rafting start point from camp. Please let us know in advance so that we may make arrangements
