Highlights

Kaligandaki rafting is the best short trip full of diverse adventure and glamorous views of the Himalayan landscapes, villages, culture and a taste of the Himalayan white water.

The source of Kali Gandaki river is at the border with Tibet at an elevation of 6,268 meters (20,564 ft.) at the Nhubine Himal Glacier in the Mustang region of Nepal. The river flows down from the kingdom of Mustang and tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges, creating one of the world’s deepest gorges. Kaligandaki river is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley of western Nepal. Kaligandaki river rafting adventure provides the mesmerizing and amazing views of mountain backdrops, typical villages and temples (at the river banks) and amazing wildlife and provides an opportunity to witness the traditional Magar and Chettri villages.

Kaligandaki river descends its journey through challenging white water, unique cultures and amazing beaches. During Kali Gandaki River Rafting we have to continuously keep on paddling against all technical rapids on the Kali Gandaki River. Nice drops, sparkling chutes and turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the fall and spring seasons. Kali Gandaki river provide the diverse adventure in a short period trip which is the special feature of the trip. With a few hours of driving from Kathmandu it is easily accessible. The put in point is near Beni and put out point is Mirme.

As we continue downstream, the river cliffs narrow easily above us and we enter a somber canyon glistening with wet black rocks. With the all jumping and trembling in the white water we will reach the holy village of Seti Beni.  The river has deposited a house size boulder in the Seti Beni confluence with a smaller tributary. Since confluences are considered holy places in the Hindu religion, this boulder has become an important shrine to the local river people.
