(For information: Barapole is approximately 270 km from Bangalore by road.The best time to visit the Barapole River for the white water rafting  is from the month of June till September.The total duration of the rafting  will be around two hours where a distance of around 2.5 km is covered and one will come across nine furious rapids. )

As I was describing in the first part of my trip to Coorg and Dubare falls about my rafting experience which was quite exhilarating and unique for me in an enchanting and beautiful location. Here I would like to describe about our next day trip to The Barapole River which is a famous destination for white water rafting in Coorg. It is considered as one of the most dangerous fast-moving water  making it a heaven for adventure lover. It was raining the next day too when we decided to start towards Barapole river . As me and my friends were done with rafting at Dubare falls the previous day we were just joining the others who decided to do rafting at Barapole.

The road leading to the river was lavishly green with coffee and tea estates on both sides of the road. As it was raining the view from the car window was looking more magical. The drive from our homestay till Barapole River was wonderful with empty roads and fascinating climate. We parked our vehicle and walked towards the camp, the path was wet and bit muddy due to rain. After a walk of few minutes we reached the location from where the beautiful river was visible. The water was truly having a fast pace. The heavy rain and black clouds which were covering the sky were giving a very intense look to the river.

 Few of our friends were getting ready for their much awaited experience. 😀 The organizers were instructing and guiding our group about the experience and safety precautions. They were instructed to put there life jackets and get ready for the rafting. As I was looking around I found the river very turbulent and level of water was too high  due to the continuous rainfall from few days. We wished our friends good luck 😀 as they headed towards the river. I heard that they were going to cover a distance of approx 2.5 km, in which they will come across nine furious rapids. The duration of time they were going to raft was around two hours. (Though I was not rafting but I was bit scared listing to all these descriptions 😛 )

As we were waiting for our friends who went for rafting I tried clicking few pictures around that place. After a long wait when our friends came back I saw a big smile on their faces they were very much excited as it was dream come true experience for them.. 🙂 They were totally drenched and exhausted but were extremely happy.  As they were describing that the level of water was high the raft was moving in a fast rate, it was very difficult for them to keep balance, the water was splashing everywhere . The raft was moving from a high plateau to still water in a rapid speed.The waves were pulling the raft in  a different direction . Altogether it was a amazing experience for them.

We decide to have our lunch and rest for a while and start for our next destination. 😛  🙂

 To be continued…… 🙂 ❤
