The minimum age requirement for this trip is 10+ years. Adults should be in reasonably good health. Knowledge of swimming is not mandatory. The entire rapid run takes almost 2 hours, after which guests are transported back to camp. A off road ride with steaming cups of coffee greet you. There are private changing rooms at the camp after which you will be dropped back to your vehicle.
Morning Coffee, Grasshopper, Wicked Witch, Milky Churn, and Frame Head are the names given to some of the rapids along this river. The stretch of this river as it courses through Poonya coffee estate is especially turbulent and has a class 4 rapid .The dense forest surrounding adds to the adrenalin rush.The stretch of rapids ends just before the river enters the Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary.
