Beauty of Dandeli


Stargazing at night in the company of your loved ones, experiencing a rendezvous with the enchanting beauty of Dandeli and camping – if these are your ideas of fun, then Dandeli will surely delight you! One of the most exciting things to do for nature lovers is to opt for overnight camping.

Springs of gurgling water, the sweet fragrance of flowers, the verdant woods, the rhythmic chirping of birds and the azure sky enhance this refreshing experience. In today's day and age where organic products are back in vogue, this is the best way to treat yourself to a rejuvenating therapeutic massage and feel pampered by the nature itself: the rapids of the River Kali.



Kayaking is another one of the great water sports that Dandeli has in store. This exciting activity is conducted in the Supa reservoir, an expansive man-made reservoir. You can also camp in seclusion since the entire area is relatively un-inhabited. This involves the use of a kayak for moving across water. A typical kayak is a low-to-the-water canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. While kayaks usually have closed decks, sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are also getting popular.
