Kali Sarda River Rafting
Overview

The Kali river acts as the international border between India and Nepal in its upper reaches. A self-contained river journey down the Kali river is the prime white water rafting option in this part of the Himalaya.

Floating past terraced farms of Kumaoni and Nepali villages, fresh water streams, sandy beaches, thick tropical jungles, plantations we travel downstream through the terai belt negotiating exciting white water. The options for Mahseer Fishing makes this river anangler's delight.

The lack of road access makes it a complete wilderness journey. After the first few days of serene float past its confluence with the Saryu at Pancheshwar (also a famous fishing spot) with the occasional big rapid, the Kali makes its final descent to the plains in the last day on river, beginning with the mighty Chooka rapid.

Flowing past the terai hills after densely forested hillsides, this trip is an outdoor wilderness experience in a league of its own.
