Upper Kali Gandaki

This 3 days river journey covers almost 65 km from Beni down to Mirmi. We venture into remote areas, where there are few villages and days of walk to the nearest road. The trip can be done both in kayak and raft.
Kali is the Hindu goddess of destruction and Gandaki means river in Nepali. The Kali Gandaki starts from upper Mustang on the northern slope of the Himalayas. As it tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges, it creates one of the world’s deepest gorges. Turbulent rapids provide excellent class IV white water and after the confluence with the Modi Khola, the river swings south through an area where there are only a few villages actually on the river, most of them are located on the river terraces, some hundreds of meters above Kali Gandaki. On the journey we get to experience Nepals beutiful landscape and nature and if we are lucky, also some wildlife. This rivertrip is for the experienced kayaker with a solid roll, but anyone can come on the raft, learning as we go along!
DAY 1: We depart from Pokhara around 7 am. It takes around 3 hours to the put in point near Beni. Throughout this drive we have stunning views of the Himalayas. On arrival, we unload all the equipment and our tripleader will do a full safety briefing and go through paddle commands and river signals. You are ready to begin your exciting 3 days river journey! We begin with some class III rapids to warm up and and after just a short while you will be encountering two of the major class IV rapids ‘Small Brother’ and ‘Big Brother’. Soon after the two major rapids we will reach the confluence of Modi Khola where we will be camping for the night. We are on expedition and the whole team help to set camp and get ready for the night. In the evening we enjoy dinner around the campfire.
DAY 2: After breakfast we get ready and laod our rafts. We start down the river for a day of variation of adrenaline rush and spectacular scenery including views of the Himalayan peaks. After a couple of hours of paddling we will stop for a picnic lunch on the white sandy beach. We tackle class III rapids and a couple of challenging class IV rapids today. After a day on the river, we again set camp on the riverside beach.
DAY 3: After a short paddle this morning we reach the holy village of Seti Beni. The river has deposited a boulder in the confluence with a smaller tributary. Since confluence is considered holy places in the Hindu religion, this boulder has become an important shrine to the locals. There is usually a great audience to watch and listen to the spectacle as each team negotiates the rapid that has formed around this holy place. Not long after this it is time for the journey to end. Our bus will be waiting for us. We load up the gear and prepare for the bus journey back to Pokhara.
