Activities at Tejaswini River Rafting
Tejaswini River Rafting is a one-of-a-kind experience in Kerala, with plenty of curves and rapids. The river flows through rocky areas that cover its banks and forest trees that lean in as borders. Rafting is an adventure because of the wild sound of water hitting the rocks. Throughout the rafting, you can see tree branches hanging into the river, which can be very scary in some places because you can get trapped in them. There is also a chance of seeing river snakes, which are not dangerous.
The rafting trip lasts three to four hours and is physically demanding. Even though you’re on a downstream slant, you’ll have to row hard to keep the boat moving
