People who see a jump in their adrenaline when they hear adventure, this is the destination for them. Not surprisingly, Dandeli is famous for being the adventure water sports capital of South India. Nonetheless, we wouldn’t sell the myth that Dandeli is just about water sports and resorts. We wanted to show you the natural face of Dandeli by combining precisely what it is famous for and its less explored areas. And that’s why we have added Ulavi caves(Akala Gavi) and Secret waterfalls to our two day Dandeli Adventure trip. Read on.
Located 480 km from Bangalore and 100 km from Goa, Dandeli is a taluk in Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka. Perched on the banks of the Kali river, Dandeli is genuinely a fascinating mix of wildlife, scenic beauty, and adventure sports. It is a natural habitat for wildlife, including tigers, leopards, black panthers, elephants, gaur, deer, antelopes, and bears. Also, it is the second-largest wildlife sanctuary in Karnataka and was designated as a tiger reserve. Because of the rising tourism and other activities, the government is promoting eco-tourism with proper planning.
Along with spending time in the water, we will witness a sunset by the Kali river, explore 12th-century old Ulavi caves and visit a hidden waterfall. Ulavi caves are formed of limestone and are some of the most beautiful and unique caves. We get to see Vibhooti Kanaja, Akka Nagamma Gavi and Rudrakshi Mantapa and explore many other caves on our way in the forest.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?
This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited
They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!
Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.
Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
