Kali River Rapids

Kali River Rapids is a trip down the Chakranadi River ("river that goes in circles") to visit lush jungle and see how it is being ravaged by logging. The course is very rough, and its mostly white water. Passengers will get wet, potentially completely soaked. Keep an eye out, as well, for natives (other park guests) who control water cannons that will get you even more wet.
