Rafts on Cauvery was unexpected. Beautiful experience. Life jackets and rafts are provided with a guide. Since the rafting area is adjacent t the Dubare elephant camp, you can see the elephants come in for a drink or a bath at the river..

The TalaCauvery view till the KRS dam is mesmerizing and worthy of having a great experience. The whole panoramic view calls for a perfect shot in your camera lens. Cauvery is the pride of Karnataka and therefore the government takes every effort to preserve its sanctity.

Coorg River Rafting was my first rafting experience! Thanks to all my friends and the instructor I finally had the guts to embark on this thrilling adventure. Its a great place even if you are a beginner you will get ample briefing that will help you in successfully completing the activity. Amazing experience.

Family of three adults drove to TALACAUVERY and had a very satisfying experience. Did not go prepared for a dip in the sacred tank, very much regret missing the dip. The view point adjoining is well worth the substantial climb and is a must do too. Suggest following conventional dressing by women, three quarters etc. not allowed, though not rigidly... More
