Kali Gandaki River Rafting

The River kali Gandaki is the most accessible river from the trekking base of Pokhara. The dam built close to the confluence of the Andhi Khola has shortened the five-day trip. The maximum time spent on river is now 3 days. The last two days were less interesting but certain sad losses result, a visit to Ridi village, Ranighat (an old abandoned palace that's like something from an Indiana Jone's movie set) and 'Walk in the Dark', a great class 4 that was a good finale to the trip. This river rises in Mustang, the bit of Nepal that sticks out into Tibet to the North. Before it reaches the put-in it passes between the mighty Dhauligiri in the west and the Annapurna massif in the east. This gorge is more than 4 miles deep. Lower down at the put-in the river goes south and a great adventure begins.

Transportation to the river
Pokhara is 200km from Kathmandu. It takes 6 hours by bus, 5 hours by private vehicle or 35 minutes by flight. The journey from Pokhara to the put-in is amazing. The road initially follows the Seti River and rises up a winding road to the village of Naudanda where a magnificent view greets you from the north - The entire Annapurna massif. The road rises more before dropping into the Modi khola river valley which it then follows for several kilometers. At Kusma the road turns northwest and begins the descent to the river.

After lunch, you will get onto the river. The day by break down of the river is given below.

The Lower Kali gandaki is run from Ramdi and takes 3-4 days. It's hardest rapid is class 3 and it 's said to have some amazing wildlife and scenery.
