amazing rafting experience. The flow in the river was so fast and sometimes we really felt that we will fall of the boat, but the instructors and guide were so good in managing it during the rough flows.

Though we all had a doubt about the arrangements as we booked the package only a few days before the commencing date, we were really delighted after arriving the site. Whatever was promised, was there. The activities were too fun-filled. Especially rafting in Kundalika stole all the limelight. Thanks to all the group members and the organisers for such a nice experience.

I went with my family and friends and Had an awesome experience with them. Although we did all the activities available there but everything was just overshadowed by the white water rafting. It is a great river with large tides and waves and gave us a memory for life!
