Kali Gandaki River Journey

Experience the Himalayas from your kayak, travel 140 km on the holiest river of the country, and visit remote villages and curious people. This is the epic journey of a lifetime!
This is the trip for paddlers who want to experience Nepal by kayak! This two weeks epic paddling expedition takes place on the holiest river of Nepal – Kali Gandaki, named after the godess Kali. As no previous white water kayaking experience is needed for this trip we start with a river running introduction at the Royal Beach Camp on the Trisuli river. There we enjoy the nice camp and stay in bamboo beach huts. We then move on to Pokhara – with breathtaking views of the over 8000 meter surrounding Himalayan peaks before setting out on our six day river journey down the Kali Gandaki. We then learn and develop our paddling skills as we travel along and enjoy nature, stunning views and the hospitality of the people living in this seldom visited part of Nepal. Once on the river we are completely self-supported. We camp on the riverbank.After conquering Kali Gandaki and covering 140 km by kayak we head towards the Chitwan National Park, the home of 420 different specious of birds, one-horn rhinos, crocodiles, wild elephants, barking dears and Bengal tigers. We get a chance to bath with elephants and visit Tharu villages and see their traditional dances before we head back to the historical city of Kathmandu for sightseeing and shopping.
