Kali Gandaki is a sacred river named after Kali, a Hindu goddess. Beginning from Mustang glacier, this river flows down to Muktinath, between Dhaulagiri & Annapurna Mountains. It has Nepal’s most challenging river runs with the largest untapped whitewater potential in the world. There are many cremation sites and burial mounds lining its river bank.
The Kali Gandaki Expedition presents an invitation to all rafters: from novice to the most intrepid of adventurers. This rafting trip begins from the put-in site at Nayapul and concludes at Ramdighat with a drive or flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu. The river trip takes us to a steep canyon overhung with verdant foliage and punctuated by small waterfalls and sidestreams in counterpoint to rapids with class III to IV+ runs. As we descend through verdant rainforests, you will be able to see unique wildlife, amazing ethno-cultural heritages, fascinating village settlements and picturesque landscape. In a nutshell, this river trip not only quenches our thirst for adventure but also bonds us with nature and equally makes us more culturally aware.
