if not the favorite of Nepal's raftable rivers. The Trishuli

Kali Gandaki (grade 4/5+) (5/8 days)
It is a beautiful unspoilt river with good white water,
gorges, wildlife offering a feeling of remoteness.

medium-length raft trip. We recommend combining this
river with a trek before hand in the Annapurna region.

down to Ramdighat in five days. The clients may then
continue on to the confluence with the Trishuli at
Devighat, adding another 130kms & four days. Kaligandaki
is a sacred Hindu river where the rapids are technically
challenging, winding through canyons & gorges.

if participants wish to raft into the Chitwan National
