highlighttopBKG-01
TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
  • The “best all-round river in Nepal”
  • Mountains, villages, temples, jungle, wildlife, suspension bridges, temples, gorges and more!
  • Super fun, big and bouncy pool drop rapids with exciting wave trains
  • Beautiful remote beach camping

Named after “Kali” the goddess of destruction, the Kaligandaki is said to be one of Nepal’s most holy rivers. Originating high on the Tibetan Plateau the “Mighty Kali” plunges down through the Himalayas, carving out one of the deepest gorges in the world between Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Mountains.

With exciting white water rapids, spectacular mountain views, traditional villages, endless suspension bridges, waterfalls, pristine jungle rich in wildlife, deep gorges, cultural temples and beautiful white sandy beaches for camp, we consider this to be the best all round river adventure in Nepal.

If you’d like to experience a huge variety of Nepal’s most impressive scenery on an exciting whitewater kayaking and camping adventure, then Mighty Kali is the perfect adventure for you!
