KALI GANDAKI –
3 Days. River Distance: 90 kms.
Grade (high water): III-IV
Pre-raft Briefing: HE Base Camp (Pokhara) 5pm on day prior to Day 1.
Using the deepest gorge in the world that is formed between the Annapurna Massif and Dhaulagiri and named after the ferocious Goddess Kali, the Kali Gandaki is one of Nepal’s very best rivers for whitewater rafting. The rapids run thick and fast from day one just below the put-in point at Beni. For most of the three days expedition there is little relent.
Mostly Grade III rapids – but sometimes really exhilarating Grade IV and Grade IV+ - the Kali Gandaki carries us cavorting on through steep-walled gorges, under cascading waterfalls..to Day 4, the last morning…a grand finale of spectacular, photogenic, big-time whitewater. And fare more than jus the river, the rewards include stunning upstream views of the Annapurna range, peaceful beach camps on the river bank, and the remote villages of at least five of Nepal’s main ethnic groups.
