Below Ramdi, the river flows east in an open velley for approximately 100 km between lines of hills before joining with the Trisuli River at Devghat to become the Narayani and to flow onwards to the Ganges and the Indian Ocean. There are no roads near the river no tourists, and few other river runners; local people are natural, unspoilt and of course friendly. The lower half of the river is relatively sparsely populated, with a jungle corridor and pristine white beach. There is abundant wildlife along the river - including more than 250 species of the bird.
There are reports of people seeing the rare fresh water dolphin. Also rare, but occasionally seen, are crocodiles - the Gharial ones, mainly fish eaters, and the Muggers who will eat anything. This section of river has seen all kinds of craft on it from hover craft to jet barges; happily the only craft that you are likely to see are the dug out canoes that are used by the local ferry men.
