Goa Tourism provides Rafting Experience

Goa Tourism provides White Water Rafting Rafting Experience Todays Traveller 1 Goa Tourism provides Rafting Experience

The monsoon season in Goa is the perfect time to ride the waves of the Mhadei River, amidst the spectacular jungle landscape along the Mhadei Wildlife sanctuary.
To provide this experience, GTDC will be recommencing its whitewater Rafting activity from June 28 to September 2018. There will be two rafting trips held each day, with the first trip starting at 9:30 am and the second at 2:30 pm. Each trip will be 2.5–3.5 hours long each for a stretch of 10 km.

For this enthralling experience, visitors have to assemble at The Earthen Pot Restaurant in Valpoi, from where a 25-minute drive and, thereafter, a 10-minute walk into the Mhadei River valley will lead them to the rafting site. Here, they will be fitted with the equipment and briefed on safety instructions by river guides.This year, the Whitewater Rafting experience promises to be different. Goa Tourism has tied up with a top adventure sports video company in the country to capture the rafting experience through a personalised video, which would be shared via WhatsApp or Google Drive the same day, along with a souvenir framed picture as well. There are also plans to offer a bus service for INR 200 from Panjim and the northern beaches twice daily to make commuting seamless.Speaking on the river rafting trend in Goa, Nilesh Cabral, Chairman of Goa Tourism Development Corporation, stated, “Goa has always been one of the best Indian destinations for relaxation, offering a plethora of water sports activities. Out of the numerous ones available, navigating the rapids of the Mhadei River through our river rafting activity has been gaining immense popularity among tourists. Hence, this year, we decided to associate with a top adventure sports video company to create personalised videos of our adventure enthusiasts braving along the Mhadei River, which can be taken home as a memorabilia. In future, as well, we will continue to explore different tie-ups that would help us enhance the experience of our travellers.”The trip is ideal for beginners and children above the age of 10. Secure footwear and proper clothing is mandatory.
