On this trip, You carry the 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. Salty Sea water 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 dam 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 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.
