How does rafting in the Narmada river sound? Now you can give a rest to rafting in the rivers of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Arunachal Pradesh because there is a new entrant in the world of rafting in India and it's in Gujarat. The gushing Narmada river is the most recent rafting spot in India you need to try out. Gujarat state's first river rafting activity is a new thing in Khalwani near Kevadiya colony in Narmada district. What's best about this new location is that one can do rafting throughout the year, unlike most of the popular rafting locations in India.
Khalwani can easily be on your travel bucket list. It's not just the rafting but Khalwani is also located right next to the Sardar Sarovar Dam. You remember the massive Statue of Unity? Who can forget that? Also located in Kevadia is the Statue of Unity, another great tourist attraction in the region. Nearby there will soon be a butterfly park, a cactus garden, jungle safari and Vishwa Van (world forest). So when you are not rafting down the Narmada River, you may take out time to explore what the region has in offer.
