With its dramatic landscape and ancient traditions, Nepal is truly a wonder of the world. The world's highest mountain ranges plunge into lush valleys teeming with exotic wildlife, alongside remote monasteries and villages which scatter the landscape. From the savannah plains and tropical jungles of the south, to the temperate coniferous forests, and the remote plateaus of the Himalayas, Nepal is one of the most geographically diverse countries on earth. 

Nepal has a wealth of biodiversity including over 800 species of bird, bear, monkey, rhino, elephant and even royal Bengal Tigers. Nepal's human population is just as fascinating and comprises a mix of Hindu and Buddhist cultures where the mix of ancient tradition and nomadic lifestyles create vibrant and lively communities. The spectacular capital city, Kathmandu, is home to magnificent and overpowering ancient temples, which are sure to fascinate you and leave you wanting to discover more about this alluring city and country!

Undertake an exhilarating white water rafting adventure down the Kaligandaki River and explore Nepal from its impressive waterways – an exciting experience which few will ever get to appreciate. Marvel at spectacular mountain scenery and admire the exquisite detail of cultural temples as you raft down choppy water rapids and float along smooth, calmer stretches in-between. What better way to explore this fascinating country!

Lying at the foot of the Himalayan Mountains, Nepal is blessed with an amazing diversity of rivers. For a white water enthusiast or simply those of you wishing to give it a try, Nepal is a paradise for adrenaline seekers with an impressive variety of white water rafting adventures. In fact, with so many rivers, you could cut your journey times between Nepal’s most popular destinations by using the waterways instead!

Named after Kali, the goddess of destruction, the Kaligandaki is said to be one of Nepal’s most holy rivers. Beginning its journey high on the Tibetan Plateau in Mustang, the ‘Mighty Kali’ plunges down through the Himalayas, carving into one of the deepest gorges in the world between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Your three day expedition will begin in the Himalayan foothills and see you raft down the Kaligandaki River working as part of a group with our experienced guides to ensure your safe and successful arrival at each camp. Along the river’s course you will encounter exciting white water rapids, spectacular mountain views, traditional villages, endless suspension bridges, waterfalls, jungle rich in wildlife, deep gorges, cultural temples and beautiful white sandy beaches. Each night you will set up camp along the riverbank when the light begins to fade and spend the evening around the campfire. This adventure is bound to get your adrenalin flowing, while also offering a fascinating insight into a Nepal which may not always be easily accessible to the land traveller.

You will be accompanied by experienced English speaking guides and professional safety kayakers who will ensure your safety at all times. These guides have extensive knowledge of the area, so make sure you ask them any questions you have along the way, either about rafting or any of the cultural points of interest you pass.
