Kaligandaki river rafting BooK Now Print


Waterfalls, plenty of white eater, green gorges and off from the tourist crowds. This five day trip provide a lot of white water excitement and being in complete blend in undisturbed nature. The upper part is a beautiful unspoiled river with good white water, gorges and a feeling of remoteness. The lower part is a big but relatively easy river, with small gorges, jungle and an abundance of wildlife. A combined upper and lower part of the river is a classic, best of its kind. The Kali Gandaki is named after the goddess Kali and is considered a particularly holy river. It is also a gold bearing river, and we met several small groups who were sluicing and panning the gravel’s of the river bed for minuscule amounts of metal.
