The countrysides of Karnataka are varied and prosperous with numerous sights and beauties of nature, one of the most spectacular ones is Dandeli. A lush evergreen forest, it is prosperous with stunning sights, superb locales and every variety of flora and fauna you can ever imagine! Located over the River Kali in the Western Ghats, Dandeli River rafting is among the best in the entire country. 

 The Dandeli rafting trail stretches for around 12km, making it one of the most exciting and exhilarating stretch of rafting. The rapids in the Dandeli River Rafting can be classified into grade 2 and grade 3 rapids which are ideal for both professionals and inexperienced rafters. While Grade 2 rapids are relatively easy to maneuver with little bumps and easy passages, the grade 3 rapids require expert steering and an eye for detail for passing ways. However, due to the presence of skilled instructors, the activity is safe for amateur as well as experienced rafting professionals. The Dandeli water rafting adventure may sound like its dangerous, but is very safe and open for non-swimmers as well. This adrenaline pumping activity may take around 4 Hours to complete.

Your Dandeli River Rafting Adventure begins at around 09:00AM in the morning. Embark on a 45 minute to  Ganeshgudi, which is the starting point of your adventure. Keep your eyes and ears open as you are provided with safety equipment, life jackets, helmets and pedals and briefed about the techniques and safety measures to take on the Dandeli River rafting experience. There will be a small ride in the boat after which the actual rafting begins. Pay heed to your leaders as they brief you about the safety measures to be taken while white water rafting. Trained and professional rafters are your guides as you plunge your boats into the rapids to experience mind-numbing thrill and excitement! 

This adrenaline-charged trip downstream takes you through the rapids and lasts for almost one and a half hours. Navigate over bumpy rocks, narrow passageways and whooshing surfs of the Kali River to take full advantage of this energy packed experience. The grade 2 and grade 3 rapids of this river are sure to make your stomach churn, turn and do backflips as you experience the thrill of lifetime! Take the exciting memories of this Dandeli River Rafting experience and commence on the ride back. Thereafter, this incredible experience will come to an end as you embark on the return journey to your destination!

    I had rafted before in the Vaitarna river, but rafting here was a whole new experience. The scenery surrounding the river is simply beautiful, and it was a very well organized trip.

    The entire experience of Dandeli water rafting was one to remember forever! We went as a group of strangers but those 4 hours of team work bound us so closely together that we returned as friends. The organisers were also experienced and trained which made us a little less worried about the whole experience. They instructed us very well on safety and how to follow their commands! It is important as if we don’t then we are only at risk! The rafting adventure itself was thrilling to no end and unforgettable! Whenever the raft was bumping the rapids, I used to have a knot in my stomach! Even if my friends were non-swimmers, they were very well taken care of by the instructors.

    I recently visited Dandeli on the Christmas eve with my friends. We were so excited about river rafting as we heard it was the best activity in Dandeli. Thanks to our guide Jaffer , we were able to go for river rafting and it was an awesome experience. The rapids are good and water is so clear u can just see the rocks underneath. I am rating it 4 only because i felt that the distance(5km) was less for the price (1400) we paid. But overall is was an awesome experience all due to our very helpful guide Jaffer who just tried so hard to get us river rafting on a day it was difficult to arrange due to some issues with the resort guys. He also arranged an awesome home stay at Stanley's Farmhouse. Thank you Jaffer bhai. You must surely try this activity at Dandeli.

    My first rafting experience was awesome. Though I know how to swim, I was slightly nervous but the instructors gave me good support. I want to go rafting again!
