The Chaliyar is a peaceful river which originates from the Elambalari Hills in the Wayanad plateau and empties in the Lakshadweep Sea. Upholding the cause of conservation of this river, Chaliyaar River Challenge by Clean Rivers Initiative facilitated by Jellyfish Watersports, came up with the idea of Kayaking for a cause.
Chaliyar River Challenge is a 3 days and 70 kms paddling event in the Chaliyar river organised by a group of professional kayakers. Chaliyar River Challenge aims at promoting the many recreational and adventurous ways this river can be used. It also aims at initiating a connection between the river and youngsters, school children and families. The event will be flagged off from Nilambur on 23rd of September and will conclude at Beypore on 25th of September.
