It cut the bottom of Annapurna I (8091m) and giant Mt Dhaulagiri (8167m) which also known as deepest gorge of the planet. Now, you could do rafting on just three days because of the dam along, about 90 km distance. However it has some of the big volume rapids like Small Brother, Big Brother and Good Morning are ever challenging run.

Nepal’s only the river which has available many ammonite fossils and strong roof remaining about the Himalayan was under the sea before 70 million years ago. Kali Gandaki River was there before Himalayan born and falling into Tethis Sea. After the sea disappeared, the Kali Gandaki keeps continue flow towards southern direction and blocked by two giant peaks Annapurna and Dhaulagiri but the flow of the water never stopped which formed the present Holy Kali Gandaki River.
