On this trip, We will kayak from the Arabian Sea to the western ghats. We will reach a dam on the trip. After reaching the Palimar dam we will carry the kayak to the other side of the dam. SaltySeawaterr from the Arabian sea goes all the way till Palimar dam. Once we cross the dam, the water comes directly from the western ghats(Kudremukh).

After the river gets narrow. It's breathtaking to paddle into the beautiful landscape. You won't believe this beauty is such a well-kept secret, and the only way to experience it is by water.

On Day 1, we will kayak a whole day around 6-9 hours from morning 7 AM to 4 PM. After starting from Mulki, we will stop after the Kochi-Panvel highway bridge for breakfast. Then paddle all the way to Palimar village. We will have home-cooked lunch right before the Palimar dam. After lunch, we will start again and stop paddling at the campsite between 2 PM to 3 PM.

After taking much-needed rest at the campsite we will start again and kayak to the nearby area. We will reach back to the campsite within 6 pm.

We will camp at night and leave for Mulki next morning. At the most group is able to reach back by 1 PM.

It was definitely one of the the great experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Arrangement for food and snacks was really amazing. Especially the evening camping and barbecue was out of ordinary, usually folks don't go to this extent. Here are few items that you may consider to make it even more enthralling:1. Day 1 breakfast: It was limited to 3 idlis which is a bit damper because most people eat a bit more than this and being denied for additional serving makes it little dissatisfying.2. Day 2 Beach Fun: Most folks got 5-10 minutes to have fun in the beach before they were asked to return. Some were yet to venture into the sea. This was quite disappointing. I understand that time constraints was due to starting late from the camp and the guide had personal work because of which he wanted to leave soon. I see two options:(a) If beach activity is rescheduled for day 1, it would be great as there was lot of time on day 1 post lunch.(b) On day 2, ask people to park the kayaks in the shed. Pull a rope across the river using one kayak. Ask people to wear life jacket and swim across the river with assistance of rope. This will be fun as well as it will free up the kayaks when folks are enjoying the beach.3. You may involve activity to jump off the kayak in the middle of the river, especially where the river splits and it is wide. This can add up as additional fun activity without adding to the cost. Otherwise, continuously kayaking sometimes becomes boring.Hope you'll find these suggestions useful. - by Ravi Ghosh for 25KM 2D/1N Backwaters Kayaking and Camping is back .
