    1. What is kayaking?

      A kayak is a canoe-like boat which is prompted to move forward in water by a double-bladed paddle. It is a small vessel with a cockpit, where kayakers or participants settle themselves and paddle their way through the water. Kayaking is a great activity to pump up some adrenaline and explore the pristine waters of a lake or a river.

    3. How is Kayaking done?

      Before anything else, one needs to find a good place for kayaking. This sports activity is done best in calm waters of a lake or a river. Once you find the place, gently slide your kayak into the water and hold it from the back, so it doesn’t stir away. Once it’s half into the water, keep one foot in the cockpit and other foot on the ground. Once you attain stability, slip into the cockpit, sit firmly against the seatback and settle your feet into the foot pegs. Now, use your paddles to move past the incoming waters.

      The average cost of kayaking in Dandeli ranges between INR 250 and INR 300 per person.
