Excellent
An amazing experience. For the first time, I got the chance of river rafting and I loved it alot. Thanks you my lovely friends for insisting me to go on this trip.
In spite of the heavy rains and floods, there wasn’t any lack of hospitality. Rahul, Vaibhav, Gitanjali, Sadu and team took good care of us. We were provided with the suite which was quite spacious and well maintained. Toilets were clean. Overall the entire area was very well maintained. The food here is delicious. Loved the bhaaji served during snacks, chicken curry during dinner and the amazing missal pav in the morning. Coming to the activities- Kayaking - Enjoyed a lot. Though it wasn’t in the river (the river was flooded when we went), we enjoyed the experience in the backwaters. The river crossing is not actually in the river. It was also in the backwaters (small pond). Maybe because of the flooding. We didn’t try it. Whitewater rafting - Really worth it. The rapids were good. Especially Johnny Walker (name of a rapid). Had a great time swimming in the river at the end. Our guide Suraj was pretty calm and chilled out. Jet skiing - This was more like a formality as you get just one round and only get to sit in the front and not operate the jet ski yourself. The speed and thrill during the rains are however quite good. I wouldn’t have done it had it not been included in the package. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely come back again. Thanks & Regards, Suraj
"Before starting any review I want to say a big thank you to the whole thrillophilia team for making this trip as my best trip. So now let's start .....if you want to have a weekend getaway but want a adventurous getaway then give it a chance to thrillophilia, you'll definitely remember.I booked this kundalika rafting camp for two people from Pune. You just have to reach the camp by your own and that is also not difficult. From Pune via train you can go panvel and from there you can reach Roha and from there you can have a taxi to camp. Now , let's talk about host and camp. The whole camp is at the best location and all around the nature and river. I am not telling you more then this ,let it be the surprise. The hosts there gave us whole information and gave us a very warm welcome. On that day we did some activities,had some conversation with different people and finally we had a very classy Indian thali dinner. Next day was D'Day , the river rafting . The photos and videos which we saw was not as good as what we actually saw there. It was much more beautiful then the photos and videos. If you're doing River rafting first time then this will be hell exciting for you. If I could have given more than 5 star if more stars were there. Go pack your packs and add a adventure to your trip. You can reach camp via bus also from Pune. Bus is there from Pune to Roha from shivaji nagar. \n#adventures=thrillophilia"

amazing rafting experience. The flow in the river was so fast and sometimes we really felt that we will fall of the boat, but the instructors and guide were so good in managing it during the rough flows.
Due to my fear of water I have always refrained from river rafting however attractive it sounds. But this time my friends encouraged me to give it a shot and accompanied me on this experience. I'm thankful to my friends and even more thankful to the instructor who made me feel safe while I was shaking with fear. Looking forward to trying rafting with Thrillophilia once again soon.

it was an fantastic experience with rafting and water sportes. location very good and takes you deep inside Nature. food was good, hospitality superb. enjoyed my stay and looking forward to visit again with friends soon.
One of the activities!!! I participate which gave me a shiver without a jump but when watching at the view from the station was breathtaking which make me forget that I was at a very thrill place. I was shiver like anything but expert of this activity inspire me that the safety gears would save me and I am gonna make a jump with the expert only. The jump was Wow with excitement at-last. I would try again next time.
The location was nice. This 45-minute experience was truly a fun and very special experience. The boat and the life-jacket provided to us were very good and nice. Kayaking process was not hard which I had an enjoyable ride paddling by myself. The whole journey was a very nice and very happy moment it was. People do remember to take the extra clothes because at the end of this activity you would definitely get wet. Everything went perfectly worth participating.
Zipline is really a fun activity that you must try it at least once, don't miss it when you around Kolad, the place really good for this activity, we really enjoyed alot, the staff was friendly and supportive, the price is not that expensive and the activity was safe and suits for everyone...
