Kayaking Water Sports in Bangalore

Bangalore is one of the most advanced cities of Karnataka. Not only is it famous for being the most advanced IT hub of India, but the district is well known for a lot of places that offer scope for natural water sports. Kayaking is one of the most favoured and preferred water sports this season and there are a lot of reasons why. It is a fact now that Bangalore is one of the very first cities in India to have a large group of white water paddlers, who are raring to go and explore the unexplored rivers of Karnataka.

Kayaking essentially involves the usage of a thing known as kayak for moving diagonally in the water. Kayaking is also sometimes mixed up with canoeing and paddling. The major difference between them is in the sitting position of the paddler as well as in the number of blades on a paddle. A kayak is nothing but a boat in which the paddler faces forward, legs in front and uses a double bladed paddle for movement across the water.

There are many small and long rivers in and around Bangalore where one can indulge in kayaking with groups of friends. There are many professional kayakers too who would help you around with a kayak and even instruct and assist you in the same.

Apart from the aforementioned places, there are many small and big lakes as well as slow moving rivers around Bangalore that offer the best scope for kayaking. However, there are many active non commercial kayakers in the city who have their own kayaks and thus take on kayaking expeditions the whole year round, when the climate is apt for kayaking. There are also commercial kayakers who teach and supervise the kayaking for large group of individuals and are hence very popular with the young crowd of adventurists.
