Wildlife and Adventure Activities, Dandeli
About the Activity:Conducted near Dandeli, a small town situated in North Karnataka, this guided tour of around 10 -11 hours is an ideal combination of an enjoyable and action-packed day in the wild. It starts early in the morning around 7 am when you are driven from Dandeli to Ganeshgudi for an hour or two of bird watching. With over 350 species of birds being residents of this area and an expert guide to accompany you, there would be plenty of opportunities to observe rare birds in their natural habitat.
A half hour stopover for breakfast later, the rest of the morning would be reserved for mountain biking on specially adapted bikes. The rough terrain of the region lends itself for an exciting round of biking through the ups and downs and bumpy paths.This would be followed by an hour of lunch break and then would begin the exhilarating surfing session in the River Kali. The Ganeshgudi rapids are ideal to surf on with their low down waves and you can enjoy the occasional splash in the fresh waters.
After a refreshing session in the river water, the trek through the thick evergreen foliage of the nearby jungle with a guide well-versed with the route comes next. This is another chance to observe the birds and soak in the sights and sounds of wildlife as you make your way through diverse foliage. The final activity is the coracle ride on the river Kali’s peaceful waters. With the sun about to set over the horizon, you return to Dandeli sometime around 6 pm.
