Kali Gandaki River Rafting provides an exciting and unforgettable experience. It includes whitewater rapids, spectacular mountain views, traditional villages, endless suspension bridges, waterfalls, pristine jungle rich in wildlife, deep gorges, cultural temples and beautiful white sandy beaches for camp. We also consider this to be the best all-around river adventure in Nepal.

Kaligandaki is one of the holy rivers in Nepal. It originates from the high Tibetan Plateau the “Mighty Kali” plunges down through the Himalayas; also carving out one of the deepest gorges in the world between Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Mountains.

Rafting in the Kali Gandaki river offers adventure enthusiast an exhilarating experience and also the scenic beauty of the region. Starting from the Mustang region, Kali Gandaki river rushes down between the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges to carve out one of the world’s deepest gorges.

Day 01 : Between 7/8 am, you drive for 3-4 hrs to the put-in point near Beni.
Throughout this drive you have stunning views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks as well as the sacred Machapuchare. Upon arrival, you unload all the equipment and you will receive a full safety briefing. Have lunch and then the guide will take you to the river starting point ready to begin your exciting 3 day rafting trip. The first day you begin with some class III rapids which is a warm up for the team, after 10/15 minutes you will be encountering 2 big class 4 rapids i.e. ‘Small Brother’ and ‘Big Brother’. Your guide will make you work hard at doing exercises to work as a team maneuvering the raft efficiently. After scouting the rapid, the safety kayaks will go first and then the raft. Soon after encountering these two big rapids you will reach the Modi Khola confluence where you will choose the beach for the evening campsite.

 

Day 02 : Once the rafts are packed you start down the river for a day mixed with adrenaline, calmness and spectacular scenery including views of Annapurna 1 and Himachuli.

You will tackle many class III sections and the challenging class IV named REFUND. This section of river is abundant with vines, wildlife and lush vegetation hanging from the cliff faces. Your campsite is below the village of Purti Ghat.

 

Day 03 : Soon after being back on the water you reach the holy village of Seti Beni.
The river has deposited a house size boulder in the confluence with a smaller tributary. Since confluence is considered holy places in the Hindu religion, this boulder has become an important shrine to the local river people. There is usually a great audience to watch and listen to the spectacle as each team negotiates the rapid that has formed around this holy place. Not long after this, it is time for the journey to end. You load up the gear and prepare for the bus journey back to Pokhara.

 

Day 04 : Drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
