A deservedly popular and medium length of river trip is combining exhilarating white water with fine scenery. One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers, The Kali Gandaki river rafting raises in Mustang an enclave of Nepal Poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalayas here; it is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley. As it tumbles down between the majestic Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna ranges, it creates one of the world's deepest gorges. The explorer Michael Peissel ran this stretch of the river in a small hovercraft in 1973 and at least two other groups have rafted and kayaked in this section.

All day you have to continuous keeping paddlers busy against all technical rapids on the Kali Gandaki River. Both experienced and novice rafters love this. Nowhere else is it possible to find such diversity on a 3 day raft trip. Nice drops, sparkling chutes and turbulent rapids provide class III to IV+ runs during the fall and spring seasons.

Moderate: Small rapids with regular waves. Some maneuvering required but easy to navigate.

Difficult: Rapids with irregular waves and hazards that need avoiding. More difficult manicuring required but routes are normally obvious. Scouting from the shore is occasionally necessary.

Grade 4

Very difficult: Large rapids that require careful manicuring. Dangerous hazard. Scouting from the shore is often necessary and rescue is usually difficult. Kayakers should be able to roll. Turbulent water and large irregular waves may flip rafts. In the event of a mishap there is significant risk of loss, damage and/ or injury.

Extremely difficult: Long and very violent rapids with several hazards. Continuous, powerful, confused water makes route finding difficult and caution from the shore is essential. Rescue is very difficult or impossible and in the event of a mishap there is a significant hazard to life.

Seasons

Winter early December to mid- March
The Nepal whitewater experience is still a warmer and sunnier one than in many parts of the world but there are longer shadows in the deep river valleys and a warmer sleeping bag is advised. Wetsuits may be needed.

Spring/Summer - late March to early June
The clear, still powerful rivers driven by spring snow melt are, on average, reduced by one grade less than their high-water maximum. The Karnali and Kali Gandaki, perfectly suited to this season, are great ‘all comers' rivers.

Monsoon - mid-June to early September
The Rivers are full and the few raft trips that are operated are limited to overnight programs on the Trishuli and Seti.
