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!

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.
