Kaligandaki River Rafting – 3 Days
Kaligandaki River is a holy river, named after the goddess Kali. Starting high in the mountains of Mustang, an enclave of Nepal which protrudes into Tibet, the river descends down forming one of the world’s deepest gorges flowing in an arid open valley. This beautiful unspoiled river is renowned for its continuous rapids, mountain views, water falls, rich wild life and sense of remoteness. Technical and challenging in parts, at medium and lower flows the Kali Gandaki is always lots of fun.
