Course Information 

This course is a combination of two of our most sought after courses, i.e. LTK  +  LTR IntoThis course will be held on the Hogenakkal section of the Cauvery (TN-Karnataka border). Note: The location of the course is 8kms upstream of Hogenakkal falls, nowhere near the over populated tourist areas of the actual falls. 

The section on which we conduct this course is an easy class II section with a few rapids separated by long pools of flat water. This combination makes it ideal for beginners and for those who are trying out this sport for the very first time.
