“Bespoke Lower Kaligandaki” 

  • Super pristine & remote river experience

  • Unique bespoke river expedition

  • Lush jungle rich with wildlife & fish
  • Gentle whitewater journey great for families & nature enthusiasts

The Lower Kaligandaki River is a stunning section of river almost forgotten since it was separated it from the more wild & famous Mighty Kali.  What remains is a spectacular & pristine 6 day river journey through jungle rich with wildlif, waterfalls, remote villages and stunning white sandy beaches perfect for setting up camp under the stars.  

We only run this bespoke trip a couple times a year in order to preserve its incredible natural beauty.  An angler’s dream, this river is home to a variety of fish including the golden mahseer and flows towards the popular Chitwan National Park.

Gentle enough for families, but with the odd whitewater drop for a little excitement, the Lower Kaligandaki River is also a great option for those looking to learn whitewater kayaking away from the crowds.  

If you are looking for a truly unique outdoor adventure for your family, this amazing 6 day river journey shares the most pristine natural environment with just enough whitewater excitement to create long lasting memories for every age.
