Kaligandaki River Rafting.

The Kali Gandaki, named after the goddess Kali (Hindu god), rises in Mustang, an enclave of Nepal on the Northern side of the Himalayas. As it tumbles down between the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna region, it creates the world's deepest river gorge. Once an ancient trading route through to Tibet, it is now a popular trekking route. From Baglung (Kusma), the river flows 70km through a wilderness area with few villages and people to our take-out at Andhi Khola (before the electricity dam). Turbulent rapids intertwine with abrupt drops as we dodge our way down intricate chutes of sparking water, village terraces cling precariously to the slopes. Surreal snow capped peaks hang suspended above us as we drift through somber canyons whose black walls glisten in the shadows. Rafting in Kali Gandaki, both experienced and first time Rafter will enjoy the abundant thrilling rapids whether on a raft or the popular option of Inflatable Kayaks.

 

Itinerary in Detail

Day 01: Drive to the rafting put-in-point at Baglung, throughout the drive we have wonderful views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks as well as the sacred Fishtail Mountain. Upon arrival we unload gear. We serve lunch and our professional guides will give you a full safety briefing. After briefing it is straight in the grade 4 rapid Little brother followed quickly by Big Brother. If you have any doubts you have no time to think about them now! It is grade 4 to 4+ all the way! The scenery is impressive with blue green water, high sided lush green valleys and amphitheatres of golden sandstone cliffs with eagles riding the updrafts. On the left, pass a fascinating temple and ghat at the river1s confluence with the Modi Khola. Tonight we camp at one of nature’s five star sites with mind blowing views and dancing waterfalls.

Day 02: Today is continuous grade 3 to 4 world-class white water with rapids like Rafter’s Refund and our Breaker. Wave trains and holes abound early so watch out if you don’t want to flip! Adrenalin junkies hold on tight but don’t forget to keep glancing back upstream to catch views of the amazing Annapurna’s. Once camped, the village of seti Beni is just a short walk upstream and guarantees to delight with its stone flagged lanes and curious youngsters skylarking.

Day 03: As we continue downstream, the river cliffs narrow eerily above us and we enter a somber canyon glistening with wet black rocks. You experience what can only be seen from the water, so drink it all in as we drift towards our take out point. After lunch we take the four hour drive back to Pohkara.
