Moderate Plus Level

This trip grade involves trekking up to 7 hours a day below 5000 meters for the duration of 15-19 days trip.

The Kali Gandaki river rafting, west Nepalese Himalayan River is a marvelous medium length river journey, combining great whitewater with some of the prettiest scenery in Nepal. Both experienced and beginner rafters will love it. The village terraces cling precariously to the slopes and surreal snowcapped peaks hang suspended above us as we drift through the world's deepest gorge. Being one of the holiest rivers in Nepal every river junction of the Kali Gandaki is dotted with cremation sites and above ground burial mounds.

Kaligandaki River Rafting - itinerary

Day 01: Pokhara – Nayapool - Modikhola
We began our drive from Pokhara to New bridge about 7 am. The distance between Pokhara and New Bridge is about 75 km. The distance can be covered within about 2 hours' drive. We will do camping at Modi Khola. Overnight at Modikhola.

Day 02: Modikhola – Purti Ghat
The second day of our rafting starts from the camp site at Modi Khola below the village of Purti Ghat. While on rafting in the river, we will also observe the calm and spectacular scenery including views of Mt. Annapurna I and Mt. Himchuli. The campsite is organized at Purti Ghat.

Day 03: Purti Ghat - Mirme to Pokhara
This is our last day of our amazing kali Gandaki rafting. While returning, we penetrate into the holy village called Seti Beni on the way. It will be interesting to watch house sized boulder in the confluence. For the kind information, the confluences are considered holy in the Hindu mythology. Hence, the local people pay their visit on the confluences. Now, it is time for us to start our journey to back Pokhara. From Mirme, we take our bus to Pokhara. It is the distance of about 105km. which can be covered in a normal drive of 5 hours.

After your exhilarating white water trip you have options either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu or to visit the Royal Chitwan National Park or again you can go for the trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for few days.
