General Information

Bhadra whitewater rafting experience in Chikmagalur’s most magnificent river, Bhadra river, is just off near one of the top 8 dense forests of the world, 30 kilometers of Kudremukha National Park and 10 kms from Magundi. A river that vibrates with frothy white rapids at the onset of the monsoon. This is ideal for rafting year round. Even in monsoon when all rivers are flooded, this river is ideal for rafting and during summer its a nice experience even in slow currents as there are good drops, rapids and also a natural river jacuzzi experience before you end your rafting trip. Bhadra river rafting is considered as one of the best and scenic white water rafting sections of south India.

Bhadra White water rafting

AcePaddlers makes every effort to run a quality trip, including all the safety instructions and briefing, before and during each trip by our trained professionals. One needs to follow their instructions sincerely. Rafting is a team event and coordination and participation from all the members are required and appreciated. We at Bhadra river do not use Oar rafts where one just sit back and enjoy the ride and guide is going to do all the paddling. We use Paddle rafts aka Oar assisted paddle rafts. Each Raft can take up-to 8 people per raft with a professional guide and it requires involvement and active participation from all the members. One shall need to actively help paddle on the trip they choose, to successfully complete rafting trip.
