Kali Gandaki River Rafting

Trip Code: RKG

9 Days

Kali Gandaki River Rafting

The Kaligandaki River is named after the Hindu goddess Kali. The River springs up on the edge of the Tibetan plateau in the Upper Mustang Region. It tumbles down to the plains through Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges carving through one of the deepest Canyons in the world. The Kaligandaki is one of Nepal’s finest Rivers, offering great white water rafting with some of the Nepal’s beautiful scenery and amazing villages along its route. It runs with clear and blue water and offers breathtaking mountain views. Along the journey, it travels through tiny villages and pristine land.
This river is considered one of the holiest in Nepal and its route is dotted with cremation and burial mounds along with many small temples. It offers a great range of rapids and technical rafting.

In the evening your camp will be on the pristine white water sands and there you enjoy the quiet night time. Both experienced and novice rafters can do rafting on the River Kaligandaki. The rapids on the Kali Gandaki are much more technical (Class III - IV depending on the flow) and in extremely high water level. Our river guides devote the first part of the afternoon explaining all about how to paddle through whitewater and stay in the raft as it bucks and contort through the rapids etc.
