Nestled amidst the magnificent hills of the Western Ghats flows the mighty Kali River. It is named so owing to the dark color of its waters that turns a shade of deep black-blue because of the iron-ore and manganese rich soil, the dense foliage that gets into its waters as sediment from the forests and the heavy mineral-rich silt that it carries along its course. Whistling Woodzs Resort is situated at a splendid bend of the river Kali that flows across rocky terrain, making way for some marvelous rapids in the path of the gushing river. The resort enjoys a whopping 400 mtrs of riverfront all to its own. Centered on the thrilling water activities, this eco-resort provides all the luxuries of a hotel so that you can enjoy nature at its best in the most comfortable way. Planning a getaway in Dandeli guarantees a time well spent amidst nature- tranquil luxurious stay, thrilling water sports in the choppy river like white water rafting, boating, kayaking, canoeing, Zip-line, Giant Swing, River Biking and more, lip-smacking food, fun filled experiences of trekking, bird watching, boating, swimming and camp fires. It’s a complete adventure experience for the whole family.
Borrowing its name from the quant temple of Dandelappa, a local deity in the town, Dandeli is synonymous with the river Kali from several years. The etymology can be traced to the words Dandakaranya where it is believed that Lord Ram ,Laxman and Sita spent some time. The quaint town rose to prominence owing to the timber trade that flourished along the banks of the Kali river. Several timber depots mushroomed and provided some of the best teak for buildings and industries across India. With the Kali river flowing with gusto, water sports became a huge draw for travelers seeking adventure. Being easily accessible from major places in the vicinity like Goa, Hubli, Belgaum, Kolhapur, etc., Dandeli has become the first choice for travelers from all over India who want some quietude, with the grace of the nature and lots of adventure sports around the river.
