A medium length river, the Kali Gandaki offers spectacular views of mountains and flows by charming little villages with no motor roads in sight. With views of eight-thousand meter peaks and challenges of rousing rapids, this is indeed a unique experience for rafters. With visits to temples and villages, this trip is a cultural one as will, and the technical nature of the rapids ensures a busy time paddling.
Rapids : Small Brother, Big Brother and Refund.
The adventure begins with a trip down to Pokhara ( either a half-hour plane ride or a five-hour drive ) where the first day is spent relaxing. The put-in point which is 40km away is reached after a 2 1/2 hour drive the next day. The rafters are greeted by a series of rapids (Class III and Class IV) and can also enjoy some bird watching. Further down, the rapids decrease in frequency and the valley widens slowing down the flow. Interestingly, waterfalls with stalactite formations are seen along the way. Normally, this is a three-day rafting trip.
