The Kali Ghandaki:
Kali Gandaki is named after the goddess Kali,it rises in Mustang an enclave of Nepal on the northern side of the Himalayas, then tumbles down to create the deepest river gorge in the world. Magnificent views of the mountains, village inhabitants, local culture, forest vegetation and wildlife are found along the journey, as well as its equally turbulent 3 to 4+ rapids and deadly holes found when rafting this river.
The recent damming of the lower portion of the river has left one of Nepal’s premier medium length river journeys that combines some fantastic whitewater with some of the most beautiful scenery in Nepal, villages that are rarely visited, truly quiet evenings, abundant wildlife, sandy beaches and stunningly beautiful waterfalls.
The rapids on the Kali Gandaki are much more technical and continuous,enough to keep paddlers busy all day. Both experienced and novice rafters love this. Nowhere else in Nepal is it possible to find such diversity on a 3 day raft trip.
Nice drops, sparkling chutes and turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the Autumn and spring seasons. The river follows an ancient trading route from Tibet that takes you through the deepest river gorge in the world.
