Overview

About the activity: 

  • Rafting in Coorg, through the Barapole River's roaring currents is indeed an experience worth cherishing. The activity begins with your arrival at Barapole which is known as Kithu Kakathu River. You can participate in this activity of 1-2 hours anytime between 09:00 AM to 03:00 PM. Make sure you attend the next session on safety tips to enjoy the best of rafting Coorg. 
  • You will be getting a briefing from experts, followed by a drill and the run that will take you in the river for a distance of 2.5 km. The base camp lies near the Ponya Devarakad. You will be entering the first stretch of rapids of rafting in Coorg after 600 meters of paddling from the pool, which is called Morning Coffee, a level 2 range of rapids. 
  • After a 4 km calm section the river then drops through several kilometers of class 3, 4 and even class 5 rapids before it enters Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary plummeting over a 120 feet falls.
  • Then make sure that you are enjoying 3 stretches of this highly technical and (in high water levels) very difficult class 3 to 4 rapids. It is one of the most challenging raftings available for the general public in South India.
  • Rapids are exotically named; Morning Coffee, Grasshopper, Wicked Witch and finally, Big Bang.

  • All those who are between the age of 14 and 60 can participate in this thrilling adventure activity and select any time slot between 09:00 AM and 03:00 PM.

    "Our tour operator, Ace Paddlers, were a little difficult to find, given the lack of sign board outside their place. However, the guide was polite and extremely helpful. We experienced 4 rapids, each getting better than the previous. Overall, a great experience!"

    These guys did an awsome job to give a great experience for a group of Dutch students: I advice you to raft here and not to do the rafting near the elephant camp more up north from Coorg where the current is less fun. - When we got lost they picked us up on the other side of the river - Fun and well trained instructors - Valuable things can be kept in a safe - Pleasant water to swim in - Able to photodocument everything Even when I lost my sunglasses they would send it back to me by mail!

    It was a tremendous and wonderful experience for all of us. We reached the rafting spot with tensed minds how would this go. But after reaching there, with the guidance from instructor we started our rafting. The place is so nice and locations are very good through out the rafting. Fortunately,we enjoyed rain as well which made our experience so good. The organizers are also friendly in nature and responded well to our questions. All the 5 rapid stages are excellent and words cant explain.Don't hesitate to say YES for camera videos and pics that will be taken by the guide along your ride which will be your memory through your life. Finally,when you get chance to visit madikeri,rafting should be one of the must adventures to do.
