Best things to do in Dandeli and sightseeing in Dandeli

This town under the Uttara Kannada District of Karnataka is considered as one of the most beautiful places on Earth and the major credit goes to the dense cover of natural forests here. The name Dandeli is derived from an old legend. Once there was a man named Dandelappa who was a manor in the court of the royal Marishi. The daughter of the master fell in love with Dandelappa but to keep the respect of his master, he rejected the proposal of the lady. In a motive to take revenge for her rejection, the lady went to her brothers and accused Dandelappa of having misbehaved with her. This is how the honest man was killed and the [arts of his body were buried at two different places. To respect the man, two temples were built on these two sites and the name of the place was kept as Dandeli. The town is on the banks of the Kali River and thus there are opportunities to enjoy a lot of adventure sports such as kayaking and canoeing. Another important attraction here given the natural beauty and the richness of flora and fauna is the Dandeli Wildlife Sanctuary.

Kali River - Dandeli

Also known as the kalinadi, this river flows through the Karwar region of the district of uttara Kannada in Karnataka. This is a very important river as it is the main source of water supply for almost 4 lakh people and also the main source of livelihood for the fishermen around this place. There are a number of dams built here for the purpose of generating hydroelectricty which will in turn provide electricity to the families around this river. The Kali Bridge is built over the river and is a part of the National Highway or the NH 17 which is an important road network too. Adventure sports such as river rafting is very popular over here and the scenic beauty is a delight for photographers and well as nature lovers.
The Kali river behind the resort was FULL and the resort people informed us that if we would like to go for rafting it's better we go immediately as water level might fall the next day. So after a quick and tasty breakfast we headed to the rafting site where we got ready with the gears and instructions. The entire stretch was 9 kms long with 8 rapids some of them 3rd degree and it took us about 3 hrs to finish. This is my third rafting experience and each of them were totally unique. Once we reached back, freshened up and finished our lunch it was already evening and we were lazying around near the river side.

My first White Water Rafting Experience and it was over the top thrilling ! Must try activity for everyone. This is a beginner level rafting and anyone can give it a shot ! Soaking up in the water..paddling..learning how to steer and just plain old swimming..marvellous experience. If you have a big group all the better ! Wear comfortable clothes especially the ones which wont bother you when wet.
