Dandeli is an ideal weekend getaway in north Karnataka for those who love nature & water activities. The town is surrounded by thick forests and rich vegetation where rare animals and birds roam in deep valleys and hilly terrain. On the banks of the Kali river, Dandeli is truly a fascinating mix of wildlife, scenic beauty, and adventure sports.

Different water adventure sports in Dandeli include – (Package costs around INR 1500/- usually)
✔ White Water Rafting, ✔ Zorbing, ✔ Swimming, ✔ Boating, ✔ Ziplining, ✔ Kayaking

Each activity above costs between 100 to 350 INR. White Water Rafting costs approx. 600 rupees. We have a window to enjoy whichever watersports you wish to do based on their availability at that time. You may avail of these sports directly by paying cash over there.

Important notes on rafting:
✔ The status of White Water Rafting – whether it will happen or not – will only be announced by Forest/Dam authorities on Saturday morning.
✔ No travel company can promise it beforehand 100%.

  • The status of White Water Rafting – whether it will happen or not – will only be announced by Forest/Dam authorities on that morning.

Adding to the excitement – the most famous destination in Karnataka. – Gokarna. There are famous Beaches like Om Beach and Kudle Beach. Interesting thing is, there are also a few more beaches that can only be reached by trek like Paradise Beach and Half Moon Beach. These Beaches are separated by hills covered with forest. One has to climb up the hill, trek through the woods, and reach the next beach. Sounds exciting, eh?

Taking a dip under the chilling fresh mountain water of Vibhooti waterfalls is so rejuvenating. There’s something magical about waterfalls that will refresh your senses and instantly make you happy. A visit to Yana caves in the thick rain forest is equally thrilling.
