Kali gandaki

PDF Print E-mail

The upper part is abeautiful 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 rises in Mustang. Here it is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley. At Kalopani (black water) the river drops off the roof of the world and cuts one of the deepest gorges in the world between Dhaulagiri, height 8,167 m and Annapurna, height 8,091 m.

Rafting Itinerary

Day 01

Drive to Banglung by private bus and have a lunch. After lunch it is straight in the grade 4 rapid little Brother followed quickly by big Brother. We camp at one of nature's five star sites with mind blowing views and dancing waterfalls

Day 02

Today is continuous grade 3 to 4 world-class white water with rapids like Rafter's Refund and Oar Breaker. Wave trains and holes abound early in the day so watch our it you don't want to flip! Adrenalin junkies knock yourself out but don't forget to keep glancing back upstream to catch views of the amazing Annapurna. Once camped, the village of Seti Beni is just a short walk upstream and guarantees to delight with its stone flagged lanes and curious youngsters skylarking.

Day 03

As we continue downstream, the river cliffs narrow eerily above us and we enter a somber canyon glistening with wet black rocks. You experience what can only be seen from the water, so drink it all in as we drift towards our take out point.
