Kali Gandaki River Rafting

One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers, the Kali Gandki raises in mustang an enclave of Nepal poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalaya. Here it is a flat and braided river flowing in an arid open valley and cuts one of the deepest gorges in the world between Daulagiri height 8167m to the west and Annapurna 8091m to the east.

After the confluence with the Modi Khola the river swings south through an area where until recently tourists where almost unknown. There are few villages actually on the river – most are located on the river terraces some hundreds of meters above. The Kali Gandaki is named after the goddess Kali and is considered a particularly holy river.

This is a rewarding river for the bird watcher, you can see mongoose, monkey, and signs of leopard and others.
