Barpole is a river in mountainous Coorg District. The
Upper Barapole River drains the eastern flanks of Brahmagiri Ghats. It is situated at around 250 km from Bangalore.
We had booked the package of the organization NASA (National
Adventure and Sports Academy) who conducted the rafting in river Barpole.
In kannada 'Hole' means river. the name of the river
is Barpu. Barpu+Hole became Barpole.
The most challenging Whitewater rafting opportunity in South
india is the whitewater rafting on the Barapole river. The actual length of this run is between 3-4 KM, but the rapids on
this river stretch can be a class 3-5 (depending on the rain). It was class 4 when we had been, still
The entire rafting session lasts about 3 hours. This includes
a mandatory training session for all rafters.
Eventhough you dont know swimming you can darely go to the
rafting and enjoy the different thrill.
