The Kali Gandaki, named after the goddess Kali (Hindu god), rises in Mustang, an enclave of Nepal on the Northern side of the Himalayas. As it tumbles down between the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna region, it creates the world's deepest river gorge. Once an ancient trading route through to Tibet, it is now a popular trekking route.

From Baglung (Kusma), the river flows 70 km through a wilderness area with few villages and people to our take-out at Andhi Khola (before the electricity dam). Turbulent rapids intertwine with abrupt drops as we dodge our way down intricate chutes of sparking water, village terraces cling precariously to the slopes. Surreal snow capped peaks hang suspended above us as we drift through somber canyons whose black walls glisten in the shadows. Rafting in Kali Gandaki, both experienced and first time Rafter will enjoy the abundant thrilling rapids whether on a raft or the popular option of Inflatable Kayaks.
