There are two roads to reach Kolad. One via Goa Highway (Panvel - Pen - Nagothane - Kolad) and another via Expressway (Panvel - Khopoli Exit - Adlabs Imagica). We suggest that you take Expressway till Khopoli Exit.
CBD Belapur - Kharghar Railway Station (to your right) - McDonalds Panvel (to your left) - Panvel - Khalapur Toll - VERY IMPORTANT - take Khopoli Exit - Adlabs Imagica - Durshet - Pali (one of the Ashtavinayak Temples of Maharashtra).
Route beyond this point will depend on the fact if you are driving your vehicle or you have a driver with you.
This route will take you to Parking Space.
Continue to Wakan Phata where you join Mumbai-Goa Highway - Kolad - one km after Kolad market turn left (look for the direction board that says Vile/Mulshi/Pune; in effect, you would be leaving Goa gighway here) – few meters ahead you would cross the railway line – Sutarwadi Village - MHE Office will be your left in Sutarwadi Village.
You are advised to park your vehicle near our office (Mercury Himalayan Exploration) here as it remains relatively safe in the village (though we don’t take guarantee of the same).
You need to hire Six-Seaters here which will take you to Rafting Start Point. This drive takes around 20-25 minutes. (the charges of six seater are not included i n our cost)
Once you are through with Rafting, the same six-seater driver brings you back to your vehicle.
End Point to your vehicle is a drive of 10-15 minutes.
Take route via Rawalje (if required cross check with locals) - Village Saje (you will see the Dam wall to your left) - Cross bridge - take a right turn - You will see unfinished / under construction structure and river Kundalika flowing behind it. This is your Rafting Start Point.
Ask your driver to pick you at Rafting End Point. He would need to drive back and turn right for Sutarwadi Village.
Directions for your driver beyond this point are MIDC Water Treatment Plant (at his left) – Empower Camps (at his left) – Geeta Bag (to his right) – Sutarwadi Village.
Here he will be guided by locals to Rafting End Point where he will pick you up.
