Kaligandaki River Rafting

Trip Overview

The Kali Gandaki, a tributary of the Trisuli, originates in Mustang along the Nepal/Tibet boarder. It is relatively flat until it reaches Kalopani where its gradient substantially increases and the river takes on an entirely different feel. The river here winds its way though steep mountain gorges and lush tropical forests providing beautiful scenery for the entirety of our rafting trip. The Kali Gandaki is one of the most remote rivers in Central Nepal as there are no roads or trekking trails that follow the river. Because of this the river canyon is extremely pure and unspoiled. The local villagers that we meet along the way have seen very few Westerners and will be very curious and friendly toward you. As we work our way down through these gorges we will have plenty of opportunity to test our rafting skills against continuous class 4 whitewater. After long days of paddling you will be able to kick up your feet and relax as the guides prepare an appetizing dinner. With a full stomach we can sit back around the camp fire, look at the stars, reminisce about today and dream about tomorrow!
