The Kali Gandaki rises in Mustang, an enclave of Nepal poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalaya. Here, it is a flat and braided river, flowing in an arid open valley.
At Kalopani this river drops off the roof of the World and cuts one of the deepest gorges in the world between the Dhaulagiri (8167m) to the West and the Annapurna (8091m) to the East.
After the Confluence with the Modi Kohla, the river swings south through an area where until recently, tourists were almost unknown. There are few villages actually on the river - most are located on the river terraces some hundreds of meters above - The Kali Gandaki is named after the goddess Kali and is considered a particularly holy river; an auspicious place to be cremated and every river confluence is dotted with cremation sites and burial mounds (don't start digging on your own!).
This is a good river for drifting with floatable boats or rafter and kayakers with limited experience. A classic, "Best-of-its-kind", trips that deserve to be popular.
This is a rewarding place for the birdwatcher and we have also seen mongoose, monkeys and signs of leopards and otters.

In this trip you can see scenic valleys, good valley of mountain and Trisuli Raftting can prove to be truly satisfying which challenging encounters rapids. The Trisuli Rafting is without a doubt the most exciting thing you can do in Nepal.
