Kali Gandaki River Rafting
Kali Gandaki River Rafting flowing from the Mustang Himal through the deepest ravine in the world between the Annapurna and the Dhaulagiri where Kali-Gandaki offers mighty waves and sandy beaches and rapids like Leopards Jump and Devils shake, with many more exciting whitewater thrills as you float downstream.
Kali Gandaki River Rafting trip starts with a drive to Pokhara the pace of the trip is supplemented with abrupt drops with spectacular village’s terraces with the sorrel Himalayan backdrop. All-day you have to continue 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 raft trip. Nice drops, sparkling chutes, and turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the fall and spring seasons.
The river then flows southward through a steep gorge known as the Kali Gandaki Gorge, or Andha Galchi, between the mountains Dhaulagiri, elevation 8,167 metres (26,795 ft) to the west and Annapurna I, elevation 8,091 metres (26,545 ft) to the east. If one measures the depth of a canyon by the difference between the river height and the heights of the highest peaks on either side, this gorge is the world’s deepest. The portion of the river directly between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I, 7 kilometres (4 mi) downstream from Tukuche), is at an elevation of 2,520 metres (8,270 ft), which is 5,571 metres (18,278 ft) lower than Annapurna I. The river is older than the Himalayas. As tectonic activity forces the mountains higher, the river has cut through the uplift.
