In spite of the heavy rains and floods, there wasn’t any lack of hospitality. Rahul, Vaibhav, Gitanjali, Sadu and team took good care of us. We were provided with the suite which was quite spacious and well maintained. Toilets were clean. Overall the entire area was very well maintained. The food here is delicious. Loved the bhaaji served during snacks, chicken curry during dinner and the amazing missal pav in the morning. Coming to the activities- Kayaking - Enjoyed a lot. Though it wasn’t in the river (the river was flooded when we went), we enjoyed the experience in the backwaters. The river crossing is not actually in the river. It was also in the backwaters (small pond). Maybe because of the flooding. We didn’t try it. Whitewater rafting - Really worth it. The rapids were good. Especially Johnny Walker (name of a rapid). Had a great time swimming in the river at the end. Our guide Suraj was pretty calm and chilled out. Jet skiing - This was more like a formality as you get just one round and only get to sit in the front and not operate the jet ski yourself. The speed and thrill during the rains are however quite good. I wouldn’t have done it had it not been included in the package. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely come back again. Thanks & Regards, Suraj

"Before starting any review I want to say a big thank you to the whole thrillophilia team for making this trip as my best trip. So now let's start .....if you want to have a weekend getaway but want a adventurous getaway then give it a chance to thrillophilia, you'll definitely remember.I booked this kundalika rafting camp for two people from Pune. You just have to reach the camp by your own and that is also not difficult. From Pune via train you can go panvel and from there you can reach Roha and from there you can have a taxi to camp. Now , let's talk about host and camp. The whole camp is at the best location and all around the nature and river. I am not telling you more then this ,let it be the surprise. The hosts there gave us whole information and gave us a very warm welcome. On that day we did some activities,had some conversation with different people and finally we had a very classy Indian thali dinner. Next day was D'Day , the river rafting . The photos and videos which we saw was not as good as what we actually saw there. It was much more beautiful then the photos and videos. If you're doing River rafting first time then this will be hell exciting for you. If I could have given more than 5 star if more stars were there. Go pack your packs and add a adventure to your trip. You can reach camp via bus also from Pune. Bus is there from Pune to Roha from shivaji nagar. \n#adventures=thrillophilia"

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.

Due to my fear of water I have always refrained from river rafting however attractive it sounds. But this time my friends encouraged me to give it a shot and accompanied me on this experience. I'm thankful to my friends and even more thankful to the instructor who made me feel safe while I was shaking with fear. Looking forward to trying rafting with Thrillophilia once again soon.

The river rafting experience was awesome . You will enjoy the beauty of river Kundalika .The guides for rafting are well experienced and takes care that you completely enjoy the ride . The time for rafting is more than 2.5 hrs and the distance is about 12 km. Talking about the place camp it was not that great.There was a bit of mismanagement . But the activities , food and stay in camp was awesome. Go early and you can very well enjoy the coolness of the river and enjoy yourself with water sports and swim in the river. The camp site is way too far from the rafting location and travel to the rafting site and from there back to camp site is very tiring . And it’s preferable to travel to rafting site with their vehicle and not yours cause the end point of rafting is far away from the start point and it’s very difficult to come back to start point if you go with your own vehicle. Overall a good experience .
