The Kundalika is a small river flowing from the Hills of Sahyadri to the Arabian Sea. This river originates at a small town called Bhira in the Indian State of Maharashtra, 150 km south east of Bombay (Mumbai). The important towns located on the banks of Kundalika are Kolad, Korlai, Chaul, Roha and Salav. River Kundalika is fed by the excess water from Tata Power's Mulshi Dam Project on to a series of hydroelectric projects and dams, including Ravalje followed by Bhira and then Dholvan, where the water is released in the morning typically at 6 am. The gush of the water reaches Sutarwadi at 7:30 am and water rises at Kolad at 10:00 am. There exist a historical Trade Route called Savalya Ghat which descneds down in Kundalika Valley from Tamhini Ghat Road. Beautifully carved staircases exist at some places & also 2 small water cisterns are encountered. On the bank of River Kundalika are many retreats and farm houses with mango and watermelon as the chief fruit product and rice and nachni as the chief farm produce as the soil is very rich in minerals and the ample water via canals fed from River Kundalika's clean water. Over 90% of Kundalika's water is consumed by industries, including RCF's THAL Project and many MIDC all across. On the cards are to use 9000 Quesecs of water by the upcoming Reliance and Essar's new projects in the Villa MIDC. This will kill the rafting beside considerably reducing the river's downstream water levels at Kolad. The river will die a little more and become more placid and shallower.

Rafting of grade II and III can also be experienced over a 14 km circuit and can be enjoyed all day in the monsoon.From Mumbai And Pune [hide]v · d · eHydrology of Maharashtra Adan • Bhima • Bindusara • Daman Ganga • Dnyanganga • Girna • Godavari • Gomai • Indravati • Karha • Koyna • Krishna • Kundali • Kundalika • Rivers Mula • Mula-Mutha • Mutha • Narmada • Nira • Painganga • Panchganga • Panzara • Patalganga • Pavana • Pranahita • Purna • Savitri • Shahanur • Tapti • Ulhas • Vaan • Vashishti • Wainganga • Wardha Waterfalls Kune • Pandavgad Aksa • Divegar • Girgaum Chowpatty • Juhu • Kelwa • Marvé • Shiroda Beaches Jayakwadi • Khadakwasla • Kolkewadi • Koyna • Dams Mulshi • Nilwande • Panshet • Susri • Temghar • Tilari • Ujani • Valvan • Varasgaon • Waghur Hydrology of surrounding Madhya Pradesh • Chhattisgarh • Andhra Pradesh • areas Karnataka This article about a location in the Indian state of Maharashtra is a stub.
