Kaligandaki River Rafting
This is one of the best canyon rivers in Nepal. Plunging its way down through the Himalayas, the river carves the deepest gorge in the world between the two 8000m peaks Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. It provides magnificent views of the Himalayas, wonderful waterfalls and of course, the most exciting rapids. Since the river is one of the holy rivers in Nepal, every junction of the Kali Gandaki is dotted with cremation sites. The trip begins from Beni and ends at Andhi-Khola
