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.

White water rafting with stay at Kundalika River was suggested by the office boss, he had been for this trip last month and was praising about it, I just wanted to try it out and I went over along with my colleagues. Initially to start with, I should say that the plan was well organized and well executed, next the guides were helpful, and about the rafting trip – fullest safety norms were followed and all the essentials were provided. Not only that I ended up making loads of friends as the co-tourists became friendly with us and we enjoyed their company. I should say that I learnt a lot from this rafting tour, I am thankful to my boss for showing me this kind of pleasure.
