A deservedly popular and medium length of river is combining exhilarating white water with fine scenery. One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers call “Kali Gandaki” rises in Mustang an enclave of Nepal poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalayas here; it is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley. As it tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna a range. Kaligandaki creates one of the world's deepest gorges. The explorer Michael Peissel ran this stretch of the river in a small hovercraft in 1973 and at least two other groups have rafted and kayaked in that section.

All day you have to continuous keeping paddlers busy against all technical rapids on the Kali Gandaki River, both experienced and novice rafters love this. Nowhere else is it possible to find such diversity on a 3 day raft trip. Nice drops, sparkling chutes and turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the fall and spring seasons. 

After your exhilarating water trip you have options either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu or to visit the Chitwan National Park or again you can go for the trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for few days.
