Days: 3 / Difficulty: 5 of 5 (Very Strenuous)
A deservedly popular and medium length river trip, it is combining exhilarating white water with fine scenery. One of the most famous names of the Himalayan Rivers, it is not only known among Nepalese people… The Kali Gandaki raises in Mustang(an enclave of Nepal) which is poking into Tibet(the other side of the Himalayas), and flows down here.
The Kali Gandaki is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley. As it tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges, it creates one of the world's deepest gorges.
The explorer Michael Peissel ran this stretch of the river in a small hovercraft in 1973 and at least two other groups have rafted and kayaked in this section.
All day you have to continue keeping paddlers busy against all technical rapids on the Kali Gandaki River. Nowhere else 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 fall and spring seasons.
After your exhilarating white water trip you have options either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu or to visit the Royal Chitwan National Park, or again you can go for the trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for few days .
