Coorg Reunion 3 [Ride 24]
September 7th, 2019
Meet up and briefing : 5:15 AM
Route: Bangalore - Siddapura (Via Hassan Highway) - 266 kms
Expecting heavy rains we started our journey at 5 a.m in the morning, as usual we stopped at we had our breakfast on our way after the briefing at the meet-up point. As we craved for rains the cloudy sky didn't look much promising until we passed Chennarayapattana. We received moderate rains all the way till homestay located near Siddapura, Coorg.
We had planned to go river rafting as we were already drenched, this is was the best decision of the ride. Sure the water looked intimidating, but it was an experience of a lifetime. They charge ₹600 per head for rafting which lasts for around an hour (7 kms). Water level was above normal since Coorg was receiving heavy rainfall that week.
Rafting here is quite safe, the guides are well-trained and the life jackets are well maintained too. They also provide you the rafting footage shot in a GoPro (8 GB Card) for ₹ 1200 after the ride. You may want to strap your GoPro to the helmet with head-band to get clear footage here.
