Kerala tourism is renowned for its sprawling coastlines, misty mountains, winding backwaters and lush jungles. Being an ardent nature lover, I was naturally drawn towards this southern paradise. I was visiting Thekkady when I encountered some people Bamboo Rafting along a beautiful stretch of the Periyar River. I was immediately fascinated by it and wanted to try Bamboo Rafting right away.
The Bamboo Rafts are made from a set of sturdy Bamboos which are tied together securely to form a raft. Although it might not look very sturdy, a Bamboo Raft is quite strong and safe to ride. Prospecting some thrill, I immediately booked a Bamboo Rafting session for the next day. The Periyar Tiger Reserve has a special full day Bamboo Rafting program that spans from morning until late afternoon.
