And then came the real adventure sport, DANDELI is famous for KALI RIVER RAFTING.
We had options –
Rs 500 short rafting through just one rapid, Rs 1350 per head for long duration rafting covering 9.5 kms – 12 to 15 rapids, Rs 1500 for vehicle to reach the starting point of rafting 1500 rs for videos and photos.
I would recommend doing the long duration rafting which we have opted for.
We looked at each other with a spark in eyes and excitement in our heart and then another excited set of words – Oh darling!! Let’s be adventurous and float over the river through the woods.
As we decided and booked the long duration rafting – a thrilling sensation filled us from head to toe. we were a group of five, two other ladies joined us from our resort and one trainer. The boat has capacity of around 10 people.
Our trainer was Mahesh having an experience of 15 years in rafting he told us that he will give commands and we need to act accordingly like “all forward, all backward, get down get back and many more”, he provided us with a knowledge about safety measures.
We both sat front and as we embarked on our journey, the first look of rapid and adrenaline rush went down through our spine, we were totally drenched in seconds, the fun laughter continued and we got along with Kali river so well, the lush green vegetation surrounding the river the chirping of birds the flowing water sound and a setting sun, no view and experience could be more exhilarating.
It took 2.5 to 3 hours to complete the rafting.
We were so thrilled that we didn’t wanted to come out but yes we shouldn’t cry because its over rather smile that it just happened.
