The reservoir of a major dam which adjoins a national park, the Kabini river offers beautiful views especially during a foggy sunrise! You get to see so many different animals (herds of them) and birds including elephants, eagles, cormorant, peacocks, etc.

We did corocle ride in backwaters, depth was 40ft (Max) in some places. Shallow water near the banks, hence boat cruises were not operating. Kids also enjoyed bullock cart riding & we did cycling along the banks of the river.

Kabini runs through wyanad to merge with Kaveri and looks to be flush all seasons. This is the life line fo residents, farmers and the coffee/tea estates

A boat ride down the Kabini river at dawn is an experience like no other! One can marvel at the lovely colours the sky turns into and the hundreds of species of birds all around you. Swifts, eagles, vultures, snake birds, kingfishers etc are flying all around. If you're lucky you can also spot otters gamboling around, or a crocodile... More
