    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.

    My experience of river rafting in Coorg was nothing short of magical. As soon as we reached, the beauty and serenity of the Bramhagiri Wildlife Sanctuary overtook my senses! Thereafter, we had a safety briefing which was extremely essential as I had no prior experience of rafting. They told us about rafting safety, what to do when the leader yells a command and things like that. Then the true thrill began! Oh Wow! My stomach was doing backflips and somersaults man! Crazy! I will recommend Barapole rafting to anyone who wants to experience adventure in Coorg.

    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!

    Coorg River Rafting was my first rafting experience! Thanks to all my friends and the instructor I finally had the guts to embark on this thrilling adventure. Its a great place even if you are a beginner you will get ample briefing that will help you in successfully completing the activity. Amazing experience.

    I think service providers need a big thanks for arranging our trip on such short notice. So, we were a group of around 8 people and the level of fun that we had is just something that I can't describe in words. Amazing place, great people and the best thing about the place is that even if you are not participating in the activity, you can simply sit and enjoy the view... its so breathtaking.

    Well at first it might appear a very simple task but trust me guys this will strain your muscles out! I had such an amazing time, we as a group of six members were all first timers but in all the rafting was one hell of a experience. Entire time we were just struggling to synchronize, however, once we got that right, there was nothing stopping us. :D
