The major river systems-- the Koshi, the Karnali and the Gandaki-- belong to the first group. Rivers originating from the Mahabharat Range, which cut through Churia hills, come under the second group. These include the Bagmati, Kamala etc. The third group of rivers originate from the southern face of the Churia hills.
A Kali Gandaki river trip first requires either a flight or drive from Kathmandu to Baglung. A typical trip could begin at Modibeni, at the confluence of the Kali Gandaki and the Modikhola. This expedition has everything, exciting rapids, sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls, gorges, wildlife and a feeling of remoteness.
A beautiful unspoiled river with good white water, Kali Gandaki, is ideal for people wanting an exciting medium-length raft trip. It is also suitable for a self-sufficient kayak trip for intermediate and expert kayakers. We recommended combining this river expedition with a mountain trek beforehand. It's also worth considering continuing down the lower Kali Gandaki (Ramdi-Narayanghat) to Chitwan National Park. This may well be the best 5 day raft trip in the world.
