Kaligandaki River Rafting
Named after the Hindu goddess of Destruction, the Kali Gandaki rises in Mustang, an enclave of Nepal on the northern side of the Himalayas. As it tumbles down between the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges, it creates one of the world's deepest river canyons. Once an ancient trading route through to Tibet, it is now a popular trekking trail. The Kali Gandaki is a terrific medium length river journey, combining great whitewater with some of the prettiest scenery in Nepal, seldom-visited villages, and truly quiet and introspective evenings. At medium and lower flows, it is a fun and challenging river with rapids keeping you busy all but one day. Abundant wildlife, sandy beaches, picturesque villages and outrageously beautiful waterfalls, all make the Kaligandaki a fantastic river journey.
