HikerWolf - Kolad River Rafting
Quite beautiful with many waterfalls, lush greenery, and the fascinating Sahyadris, Kolad is a major tourist destination in Maharashtra, especially due to its approach towards water-based adventure activities and similar activities. Kolad is a peaceful yet vibrant location that offers adventure sports like rafting, rappelling, kayaking, rock climbing and many more but of course, Kolad River Rafting has gained prominence in the tourism sector in the recent year. This tiny village in the Raigad district presents the picturesque nature before the visitors with the utmost happiness and excitement. The Kundalika River is the major factor behind people’s choice to do white water rafting in Kolad. It is one of the fastest flowing rivers in the south that makes it ideal for the adventure-filled rafting along with other adventure sports and activities. Mind-blowing forts, dams, waterfalls, etc. have their own influence on the mind of people coming here as they are competing to grab attention from the visitors.
