Kali Gandaki River

 Kali Gandaki Rafting is most popular medium length classic expedition river of Nepal. It is Asia’s oldest one river which is originated from marginal Himalayan range of Tibet and passes through all the way down of Upper Mustang valley. 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. So it is undoubtedly worth to raft once if you are truly looking for Nepal’s most varied landscape with rare wilderness experience. Never miss this chance if you are doing popular Annapurna trek may this rafting could add best essence of Nepal visit.

Day 01-03

DAYS 1-2
From Pokhara, we take a chartered bus out of town and up through the foothills of the Annapurna Mountain. The view from the bus is fantastic. The road winds and twists through the mountains as we work our way to the town of Baglung, the nearest point of civilization from where we begin our river journey. The private bus ride takes about 3-4 hours. Once at the river, the guides inflate the rafts, prepare lunch and give a safety talk. The guides then tie all the equipments into the rafts, which is quite a site to witness. More than a decade of running rivers has taught us a lot, not the least of which is how to tie a load so it stays put no matter what. After lunch, we push off into the current leaving the road behind for the next 3 days.

A raft trip down the Kali Gandhi isn`t just a vacation, it is an education. Our river guides spend the first part of the afternoon explaining the finer points of how to paddle through whitewater and stay in the raft as it bucks and contorts through the rapids. For those who missed a point in the previous briefing, there is a lesson on how to swim through whitewater using the flotation device and paddle to keep your head up and your feet to push off the rocks. The guides will also teach you what they are looking for when they run the river-the innocuous looking rise in the water that hides a hole or the way you can use the pillow of water rebounding off a rock to push the raft where you want it. Whitewater rafts are amazingly versatile and stable crafts and in the care of an expert raft guide, it is possible to run exhilarating lines safely and confidently. Your guide is a professional person who has devoted his/her life to learning and running whitewater rivers. Under his/ her careful indoctrination, the raft crew learns how to work as a team, practicing on the small rapids that are encountered on the first kilometer of the river. Team work is what makes it possible to run any river safely and this extends beyond your raft. All the raft and safety kayakers work as a team, communicating with and supporting each other – it`s impressive to watch. You are never in a rapid alone. By the time we get to the harder rapids with names like: Wake & Bake and Cobra, the crew will be working together with exquisite timing and precision. Just after running Little Brother and Big Brother, the Modi Khola tumbles down from the Annapurna Base Camp into the Kali Gandaki. At the right level, any expert kayaker can consider paddling this tributary and meet up with the group at the first night’s camp.

Below the Modi, the river swings south through an area where tourists are almost unknown and our journey begins in earnest. Your education doesn`t stop with rafting either. Being Kali`s river (Hindu goddess of Destruction), the Kali Gandaki is one of the holiest river in Nepal. All along the river are sacred cremation beaches where the Nepalese bring the dead bodies for burning, performing rituals and prayers as they send the deceased into the next life.

The Kali Gandaki offers some of the finest scenery in Nepal and on a clear day, the Annapurna Mountain hangs over the river valley. Peaks with names like Annapurna South and Machhapuchhare dwarf our expedition as we descend into one of the deepest river gorges on Earth. From the moment we put-in, it is 3 days before another road crosses the river. It’s all up to us from here on out.

Nowhere else is it possible to find such diversity on a 3 days raft trip. The rapids are fun and demanding but they are only a small part of the rafting experience. Wildlife, wonderful sandy beaches, sacred temples devoted to Kali, picturesque villages and outrageous waterfalls all combine to make the Kali Gandaki a fantastic river journey.

DAY 3
The last day gives us the biggest rapids of the whole trip and thus, finishes with a bang. In addition to being the biggest, the rapids are also the cleanest and we can use the skills we`ve developed over the last two days to run tighter, more challenging lines. Who knows, we might even get to swim.
