Distance from Pune: 113 km

If you’re traveling in a large group, and your idea of fun is navigating through rapid waters –  then consider signing up for Rafting. The need for team work and risk-handling is part of the whole experience, where you’re put in charge of single-blade paddles to steer the inflatable raft. On some bodies of water, and in the absence of proper safety measures, Rafting can be dangerous, hence exercise caution. In Kolad, the Rafting takes place on the Kundalika River.
