Shillong Whitewater Village

A whitewater kayak park with bed and breakfast, camping, boat hire and instruction,located in Meghalaya, NE India.

The Village

We are preparing three cabins, work under progress. There is place for camping in tents, and catering is available at reasonable rates. We plan a number of cabins in the future. Boats and gear can be hired at reasonable rates. 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 or fishing. One doesn't need to be a kayaker to enjoy the Village, anyone is welcome to come and relax. Our elevation is 740m (2400').

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, though the timings are irregular, there is usually 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 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.
