Trip Details

Depart Pokhara at 7 am on day 1 and drive to the Kali Gandaki gorge.  We start our journey with a safety demonstration and instruction on different paddling techniques and then we set off on a wild day rafting the Little Brother (-4) and Big Brother (+4) rapids. Our first overnight camp will be made at Thulo Dhunga River Beach. After breaking camp the next day we refresh the paddling skills learned yesterday before heading straight into a full day of rafting starting with the Morning Rapid (4). After lunch beside the river, we continue our adventure downstream to White Sands Beach Camp. On the 3rd morning, we leave our beach camp and tackle the final rapids of the Kali Gandaki. We then paddle gently downstream with plenty of opportunities for swimming. We arrive at our takeout point at Mirmi and after packing up and a picnic lunch we depart by bus to Pokhara. We aim to arrive back in Pokhara around 6 pm. 

  The team is trained to international standards in Safety and First Aid and holds current Wilderness First Aid, CPR, and WRT qualifications!
