Stand-Up Paddleboarding at Niyodo River

Standup paddleboarding on a crystal clear river

Running near the city of Kochi, the Niyodo River still retains exceptional clarity that makes the river sometimes referred to as a "miracle clear stream." In the downriver area, the waters are even clearer and beautifully blue—which is known as the "Niyodo Blue"—and adding a gentle flow to it, this spot is perfect for standup paddleboarding (SUP). With the help of a professional guide with extensive knowledge about river activities, anyone from beginners to SUP enthusiasts can have a fun and comfortable experience on the waters.

When to go: March through October
