The Village

We have three modern cabins for lodging, and there is also a place for camping in tents if you prefer. We plan to build a number of cabins in the future. Catering available at reasonable rates, and boats and gear can be hired at reasonable rates as well. We are located less than 1 hours drive from Shillong, and 2 hours from Guwahati. We can pick up guests at Guwahati Airport or from Shillong, should they require it. The location is very quiet and beautiful, surrounded on one side by deep jungle and on the other by a lush tea garden. As well as kayaking there is swimming, walking, trekking and fishing to experience. One doesn't need to be a kayaker to enjoy the Village, anyone is welcome to come and relax. Our elevation is 740m (2400ft).

The River

We are situated right on the banks of the Umtrew River, one of the premier extreme kayaking rivers easily accessible for day trips. The water is released daily from the hydro station, and although the timings are irregular, there is good water levels most days. The rapids at the Village are class 2-4. The main rapids are separated by pools so it's very safe, and there's something for everyone, from the beginner to the elite. The main rapid is very challenging, we call it the Terminator Hole. At the lower end of the Village is the Ski Jump rapid, which everyone enjoys, and it's one of the most beautiful stretches of river anywhere. There is a natural river pool in the adjacent connecting stream which is very good for swimming or for learning to roll.
