Some trips are meticulously planned, while some are grossly unplanned,this is one of those second type where we booked cab and hotel just on spot...
In last week of July 2018 me and my sister landed in Mumbai from HYD ,practically with no defined itinerary.After many if's and but's we decided to hit Kolad and tick down rafting off the bucket list..
Preferably you need your own transport to reach Kolad..It's almost a 4 to 5 HR journey from Mumbai.And our cab reached us at Nature trails Kundalika River Rafting resort around 3 pm and we discovered ourselves in middle of nowhere in an empty resort. We almost decided to back off and return but somehow our cute ,cozy and absolutely gorgeous tent styled cottage,a little adventure call and a sudden change in driver attitude whom we booked only one way deterred us and we decided to stay.
We already had enough of traveling so to cool it off we were off to kayaking in the Kundalika river. Our resort had an exclusive entry to one of the bank's of Kundalika and after a little hike down we reached a rustic bank and the view was just breathtaking.
Our kayaking experience in the rain fed overflowing Kundalika river was just out of the world and we thought that all the journey and uncertainty was thus well paid off..
Just then it started drizzling and my common man words cannot justify the beauty of this rustic setting.
It seemed I was living the adventures of monsoon rowing experiences of rustic lads I had read long before in literature and novels .
The long day wrapped up with a sumptuous buffet at the resort's dinning hall where we were reliefed to discover a big corporate team of an MNC. Yehhh...Now we were not alone in this resort..
