Lower Kali Gandaki River Rafting

Lower Kali Gandaki River RaftingA big but relatively easy river, with beautiful, unspoiled scenery, small gorges, jungle and an abundance of wildlife. A relaxing river trip especially for the kayaker with limited experience.

Below Ramdi the river flows east into an open valley for approximately 100 km before joining with the Trisuli river at Devghat to become the Narayani and flow onwards to the Ganges. There are no roads near the river, no tourists, and few other river runners: local people are natural, unspoiled and of course friendly.

The lower half of the river is sparsely populated, with a jungle corridor and pristine white beaches. There is abundant wildlife along the river- including more than 250 species of bird. There are reports of the rare fresh water dolphin. Also rare, but occasionally seen, are crocodiles- the gharial ones (a fish eater) and the marsh mugger (eat anything!!).

A pleasant river trip with a gentle current. There are very easy class two rapids to add interest, but these are very safe.
If you’re nervous about the white water and don’t want to get wet, but still want an interesting river with the ‘get a away from it all feeling’, then this is the one.

We operate our Kayak-clinics on the Lower Kali Gandaki, as it offers everything for a perfect and pleasant trip. Enough small rapids for the beginner, a helpful current, plenty of time to practice the Eskimo-roll and a finish in Chitwan National Park.
