    About the Activity :

    Enjoy your weekend in the serenity of the forests! Grab your friends and head for an exciting bamboo rafting experience in Pozuthana in the forested, lush areas of Wayanad. Pozhuthana has some of the oldest tea plantations in the area. The tea gardens and the misty mountains in this area make for spectacular views. Park your vehicle on the road at Peringoda. You can either get dropped back after the exciting ride or instruct your driver to come over to the landing point downriver.

    Stroll through a pleasant meadow to reach the dirt trail that takes you to the rafting point, which is on a bend in the Vythiri River. Do not forget to wear your life jackets even though the river seems shallow. It hides deceptive deeps in its path, therefore, an adept river guide will accompany you on the bamboo raft and he will pole it midstream from where you will float downstream as the river goes through exciting bends. The calm river is a true delight and allows ample opportunity to observe birds and insect life on the banks, including the famous Malabar Hornbill. Photographers can spot small shrines to tribal deities on the river bank and splash around in shallow sections in the river. The raft will finally stop below the bridge around 3kilometers downstream. You can dry off and head to a local tea shop for hot tea and snacks. Book now for the best deals and revel in adventure!
