As this river flows between two Himalayan giants, we experience the best of river adventures during three days of rafting at Kali Gandaki River. During the main tourist season of autumn and spring, Kali Gandaki River offers ideal rapids of grades 3 and 4 which is suitable for every beginner as well as experienced paddlers.

We initiate 3 days of Kali Gandaki River Rafting adventure after we drive from Kathmandu to Nayapul which is also the put-in point. And we enjoy a rafting trip of around 56 km till Mirmi dam which is the endpoint. Everyone finds this diverse rafting trip very enjoyable as there are plenty of scenery, views, waterfalls while paddling down the river. We will set up a camp at sandy river beaches that add a bit more fun and adventure to this amazing rafting.
