The Upper Barapole River drains the eastern flanks of Brahmagiri Ghats. A catchment area of enormous rainfall during the south west monsoon, which provides run off into the upper stretches of the Barapole River, known as Kithu Kakathu River. Then pouring into a small gorge we get the first section of good rapids which can become rather difficult in higher water levels. After a 4 km calm section the river then drops through several kilometres of class 3, 4 and even class 5 rapids before it enters Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary plummeting over a 120 feet falls. We run 3 stretches of this highly technical and (in high water levels) very difficult class 3 to 4 rapids. It is one of the most challenging rafting available for the general public in South India. Rapids are exotically named, Morning Coffee, Grasshopper, Wicked Witch and finally & Big Bang.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
