October 31, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

If you missed out on chasing the rapids during the monsoon, worry not, white water rafting has now commenced during the winter at Tilari River. Goa Tourism in association with Southern River Adventures’ brand Goa Rafting has recently launched white water rafting activities at the Tilari river gorge.

Mr. Ameya Abhyankar IAS, Director, Department of Tourism said, “Apart from giving one a taste of extreme adventure, white water rafting is also a test of skill, precision and patience. The rafting at Tilari is perhaps the most technically demanding rafting trip south of the Himalayas. This is an excellent opportunity to try your hand at a new sport and experience the thrills amidst stunning landscapes.”

The rafting activity provides an adrenaline rush in stunning jungle surroundings located approximately one-and-a-half hours from North Goa. Participants need to be reasonably physically fit. The activities begin in October and will continue till January, subject to dam releases.

The tour takes two-and-half to three hours including drop to the river and back, training and running six kilometers of rapids up to class four. There will be two trips a day, available at 10:00am and 2:30pm.

The tour commences with a warm-up section of easy rapids before the grand finale, which is a section of class four rapids in a steep gorge. One can reach the Tilari base by following the following directions:

  • Tilari base is located just off Dodamarg to Tilari Dam road, about 10 kilometers from Dodamarg
  • Post heading towards Tilari on the same road, approximately 5kilometers and a sharp left turn, you reach the Kudashi village road
  • Take the left road and proceed the next 1.5kilometers till you reach a bridge over an irrigation canal
  • At the bridge, take the dirt road on the right alongside the canal, which is on the left.  Follow the road for about 150 meters and on the right side is a parking area in front of the farm house which is the base

So get ready for a thrilling experience and head to Goa for some white water rafting!
