Kali River Rafting Expedition, Uttarakhand
Rafting on class II, III, IV rapids on the Kali River
Camping on beaches by the Kali
This exciting rafting expedition was high on adrenalin! We rolled and tumbled in the raging rapids of the Kali River, and floated nonchalantly on the calm stretches as quaint villages and tropical forests rushed by. Camping on silvery sandy beaches awash with solitude was a beautiful way to spend the nights.
About - Kali River
The Kali River originates from the Greater Himalayas at Kalapaani at an altitude of 3600 m, in the Pithoragarh District of Uttarakhand, India. The river is named after the Goddess Kali whose temple is situated in Kalapaani near the Lipu-Lekh pass at the border between India and Tibet. On its upper course, this river forms India's continuous eastern boundary with Nepal. The Kali River is one of the most remote and scenic rivers in India. It is a typical pool drop river, with relaxing calm scenic stretches followed by big exciting rapids with long wave trains. The river flows past terraced villages, waterfalls, white sandy beaches and dense tropical jungles. The area is rich in wildlife and the river is full of big gaming fish called “Mahasheer” and its environs are home to leopards, bears, elephants, monkeys and over 500 species of birds.
