The Kali Gandaki begins it's journey high on the Tibetan plateau in the kingdom of Mustang. Plunging down through the Himalayas, the river carves the deepest gorge in the world between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, both 8000m peaks. The Kali Gandaki was first opened to commercial use in 1991 after reconesence by the Equator Expeditions team. When not negotiating the multitude of big volume rapids, time on the river can be spent enjoying the backdrop of the Annapurna ranges and cascading waterfalls. Both experienced and novice rafters will love this short trip which is ideal for those who wish to visit Pokhara.


A deservedly popular medium length river trip combining exhilarating white water with fine scenery.

Kayaking 
This is the perfect river for the advanced intermediate  expert Kayakers. The majority of the rapids are pool-drop with great surfing and hole riding. Experienced safety kayakers accompany each trip offering, advise on rapids and tips on improving your technique. A good roll is a prerequisite.

A Pre-departure meeting is held the evening prior to your departure at our Kathmandu sales office, 6pm.

After a brief warm we encounter 2 big class 4 rapids "little Brother" and "Big Brother". After scouting the rapid’s safety kayaks will descend followed by the rafts. The confluence of the Modi Khola marks arrival at the evening campsite. Unload rafts one team prepares dinner whilst the others relax, take in the scenery or play volleyball.

DAY 02: Plenty of adrenaline and spectacular scenery. Views of Annapurnna 1 and Himachuli are interspersed with continuous class III sections of river, culminating with the challenging class IV rapids, "Refund" and "Tombstone". Lush vegetation and spectacular waterfalls cascade down cliff faces and lead us to camp at the village of Purti Ghat.

Equator Expedition management was professional and experienced. The Team were very helpful and also the food and accommodation was great. This is the first time of expedition, I will never forget it. I would surely recommend Equator expeditions to my friends.
