The road belongs to the national highway 7 NH7 and due to which the condition is very good. It will not give you bumps. The road just before the river bank is made up of gravels which becomes muddy in the rainy season, so if you are taking your car with the low ground clearance then you need to be a bit careful.

The place is safe and it is just a few kilometers away from the main NH7 highway, The villagers are helping in nature so there will not be an issue. The only danger is from the river itself. Take a bath only if you know how to swim don’t jump in the river because it is deep, you can also see snakes in them. Be extra careful if you are visiting with kids to pay attention to them.


Play the sample space to park your vehicles at the bank of the river so don’t worry about that you can park your car or bike and the bonus point is you will get shade from the trees.

If you get nature’s call then you have to do it under the tree because there are no toilets nearby.


You can do a picnic, sightseeing or you can take a dip in the fresh and cool water of the river. The water flow is really really high so if you’re planning to take a dip in the river so make sure you know how to swim.

You can see villagers fishing using the small nets, the kids taking bath in the river. just like these, I asked them to do a small skit for me and that went really well. see yourself!

This is how fast the flow of water is, that is why i am asking you to be careful if you want to take a dip in the river.


There is no option to stay and i don’t think there is a need to so come at the morning and leave during the afternoon.
