The sixth edition of ‘Chaliyar River Paddle’ is all set to take place from September 20 to September 22. The three-day event, held by Jellyfish Water Sports, in association with Kerala Tourism, is a treat to water sports enthusiasts, nature lovers, tourists, children and people from all walks of life. The event, which will be housed at the serene Chailiyar river, will promote water sports like kayaking, SUPing, and canoeing.
“Chaliyar River Paddle has been focused on saving our rivers from urban pollution and promote recreational kayaking for everyone. Recently Kerala State has witnessed repetitive flooding and most people aren’t very familiar with minimum safety precautions when it comes to water, so we aim to introduce more people to paddle in our rivers. Their connection to the rivers will help spread awareness about clean waters and solve many issues”, said Kaushiq Kodithodika, Founder, Jellyfish Water Sports.
The event, which is open to all age groups, starts at Nilambur, is located on the foothills of Western Ghats with close proximity to Nilgiris. The ending point is at Beypore in Kozhikode district, where the river meets with the Arabian Sea.
