The Lower Kali Gandaki


The lower section of the Kali Gandaki, starting from Ramdi Ghat on the Siddhartha Highway, offers a longer alternative to the Seti. It’s a medium-volume and relatively easy river (Class 2), with the same beautiful scenery as the Seti, and it flows through a completely unspoilt and seldom visited valley of pretty villages, small gorges and jungle-backed beaches. Although the river is easily accessible, it takes longer to get to than the Seti (5hr from Pokhara to the put-in at Ramdhi Ghat), making it less crowded – ideal as the perfect river for a relaxed, romantic, away-from-it-all break. Like the Seti, this is probably a good choice for a do-it-yourself trip in a “duckie” (inflatable canoe), rentable in Pokhara.
