Back to Luxury Camps

Trip Highlights

The Kundalika is located in the virgin forests below the Mulshi and Bhira Dams. Being 120 Kms from Mumbai and 100 Kms from Pune, this river is ideally located for short overnight or day trips. A one and a half hour run down a 14 Km exciting stretch with grade II and III rapids promises to give an exciting, wet and wild run to all rafters. Our rafting trips start at 8 am every day . Since the water flow is controlled by the Bhira dam, we must start our rafting on schedule or face the possibility of trip cancellation due to lack of water flow. Please report at the start point at least 15 minutes before the start time.


Our start point for rafting is located at the Shajey village below the Bhira dam.
