Rainathon is an unique idea of Mr. Kishore Patwardhan, who is a successful entrepreneur. As the word suggests it is walking in rain. But the unique thing and the speciality about this walk is this journey is covered without any raincoats, umbrellas or any kind of rain protectors.
The motto of the group is to enjoy the scenic beauty of the nature and let go all the tensions and difficulties of the busy lifestyle. A group of enthusiastic people from Bangalore has successfully finished 4 seasons of Rainathon.
The fun and the speciality of this walk is that we get to see a lot of varieties and diversities of the nature.
