One of the best outing ever. We went in a big group of 14 people. The place was very easy to locate. It is located exactly inside Dandeli and lies close to Ganeshgudi. Situated next to the river Kali, the resort offers a phenomenal view of the water. The best part about the place is you can clearly hear the sound of water from any corner of the resort. This is something that makes it stand apart from the other resorts. The key attractions of the resort are the water sports that are indeed worth the time and the money that you spend. You can definitely enjoy the Natural Jacuzzi of the resort which is sure going to give you an ultimate experience. Other fun activities included coracle and river rafting. Staff here at the resort is very quick and humble. Whenever, we have ordered for anything while our stay at the resort, the staff neither declined nor took too long to help us. Our demands were immediately met.

After exploring several places of the South India, we realized that we have been to several distant placed yet haven’t explored the ones that are located nearby Agumbe. So, we planned this trip and went on trekking in this beautiful location. We booked the tour package and it was a 2 night and 3 day trip that was power packed and full of adventure. We clicked many pictures during our journey as the locations around were beautiful. Overall, it is a fun trip that all adventure enthusiasts must undertake.

I am an adventure enthusiast and adventure and thrill keeps me going. Me and my friends have made it a point to undertake at least one thrilling trip in the year. Usually, that happens in December since that is the shut down period in our office. This time, we wanted to explore South India since we stay in the North and have explored most places in and around North, West and East. Moreover we have always enjoyed watching Malgudi days as kids so we finally decided to explore Agumbe village and the nearby surroundings. Agumbe is definitely a must visit place for anyone who loves to trek in the forest. The place is a home to several wild animals. For anyone who has a passion for photography, this place has lot on offer. The best part is that it is not expensive at all.

We went to the Bison River Resort In Dandeli in a team of 19 people. There is a great range of water activities available there. The location of the resort is good too. It is situated besides the Kali river so activities like boating, Jacuzzi, river crossing and kayaking are well managed by the staff at the resort. The staff takes due measures to ensure that people who try out these activities are not hurt in any way. Rooms are spacious and offer a good view of the Kali River. Amenities and the facilities available at the resort are second to none.
