Kaligandaki River Rafting

One of the famous names of Himalayan Rivers, the Kali Gandaki rises in Mustang, an enclave of Nepal poking into Tibet on the other side of the Himalaya. 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 (if you're won during what's under all those piles of rocks, we recommend against exploring!). It is also a gold bearing river you will probably meet several small groups of gold workers who sluice and pan the gravel of the riverbed for minuscule amounts of the metal.
