Kali-Gandaki River

A deservedly popular and medium length of river trip is combining exhilarating white water with fine scenery. One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers, The Kali Gandaki raises in Mustang an enclave of Nepal Poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalayas here; it is a flat & braided river, flowing in an arid open valley. As it tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri & the Annapurna ranges, it creates one of the world's deepest gorge The explorer Michael Peissel ran this stretch of the river in a small hovercraft in 1973 & at least two other groups have rafted & kayaked in this section "All day you have to continuous keeping paddlers busy against all technical rapids on the Kali Gandaki River. Both experienced & novice rafters love this. Nowhere else is it possible to find such diversity on a 3 day raft trip. ice drops, sparkling chutes & turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the fall & spring seasons.

 

 

 

Itinerary :
Day 01: After reaching to put-in point from Pokhara, we unload all the equipment & receive a full safety briefing with lunch. First day we begin with plenty of class III rapids this is a warm up for the team, after couple of hours you will be encountering 2 big class 4 rapids i.e. 'Small Brother' and 'Big Brother'. Soon after encountering these two big rapids we will reach the Modi Khola confluence for the evening campsite.
Day 02: Once the rafts are packed we start down the river for a day mixed with adrenaline, calm and spectacular scenery including views of Annapurna I and Himchuli. We will tackle many class III sections and the challenging class IV named REFUND. This section of river is abundant with vines and lush vegetation hanging from the cliff faces. Our campsite is below the village of Purti Ghat
Day 03: Almost immediately after being back on the water we reach the holy village of Seti Beni. The river has deposited a house size boulder in the 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. There is usually a great audience to watch & listen to the spectacle as each team negotiates the rapid that has formed around this holy place. After the shirt-rafting trip it is time for the journey to end. We load up the gear & prepare for the bus journey back to Pokhara for 5 hrs driving.

Price for the Trip :

The cost for the trek or tour will depend on several different factors. The type of accommodation you choose in Kathmandu and/or another destination will make a difference to the overall costing (budget to 5 star accommodation). The mode of transportation you prefer is the another factor which affects the cost of your package, for example prices change significantly between flight versus private car/van, tourist/local bus. The number of guides and/or porters required will also affect the total cost of your trek. From above reason the same trek/tour can vary in price quite substantially.
