Kaligandaki River Rafting (Short Trip)

  • 55kmAltitude
  • Sep-DecSeason
  • MediumGrade

Kaligandaki is the beautiful unspoiled river with good white water, gorges, wildlife and a feeling of remoteness. It is recommended for people looking for an exciting medium-length raft trip and as a self sufficient kayak trip for intermediate and expert kayakers. We suggest combining this river with a trek before hand in the Annapurna Mountains. Also consider continuing down the lower Kali Gandaki to Chitwan National Park.
