This is the most fun trip to take on a kayak. Start kayaking near the end of the river, paddle whole day and camp near the river at night. Return back the next day to the place we started.

We are certified watersports lifeguard from National Institute Of Water Sports, Goa.

  • Difficulty: 6/10
  • Fun: 10/10
  • Fitness Required: 5/10
  • Distance: 25km

After the dam, the river is clear and fresh. It's breathtaking to swim and dive into the beautiful landscape. You won't believe this beauty is such a well-kept secret.

On Day 1, we will kayak around 4-6 hours between morning 7 AM to 6 PM. After starting from Mulki, we will stop after the Kochi-Panvel highway bridge for snacks and refreshment break. We will also take small water breaks in between. After paddling all the way to the campsite, will have home-cooked lunch at the campsite.

Post lunch, we will take a 1-hour break. After taking much-needed rest at the campsite we will start again and kayak to the Palimar dam. Palimar dam has a great diving spot and swimming area. After sunset, we will paddle back to the campsite within 6 pm.

At night we will camp, do barbecue, eat home-cooked dinner, do camp-fire, play music.

Next morning at 5:00 AM, we wake up and start preparing to return back. After having breakfast, we start kayaking back to the beach, which is very close to the starting point. Most groups are able to reach back by 9:00 morning. This beach is the most secluded beach of Mangalore/Udupi region. This pristine beach is cut off from the human reach by 3 km. We spend an hour on the beach and then return to the starting point by 11:00 AM.

On this trip, we will paddle the kayak from the Arabian Sea to the start of western ghats. We will start the trip at Kolchi Kambla, Mulki. The trip will end at Palimar dam. After reaching the Palimar dam we will anchor our kayak and walk to the other side of the dam. Salty Seawater 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).

Reviews for Organizer 4.7
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 organized by kayakboy.in .
