Named after Kali, goddess of destruction, Kali Gandaki is considered one of the holiest rivers in Nepal. High on the Tibetan Plateau, the “Mighty Kali” springs through the Himalayas, revealing 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 sand beaches for the camp, we consider this the best all – round adventure in Nepal.
