RaftingThe Kali River drains some of the world's tallest mountains, and carries with it the melting snow of the majestic Himalayas on a relentless rush to the sea. For part of its course, in its upper reaches, the Kali forms the international border between India and Nepal. A self-contained river journey down this river is one of the prime options in this part of the Himalaya. The river flows past terraced farms of Kumaoni and Nepali villages, fresh water streams, sandy beaches, thick tropical jungles, hillsides of stalactite and stalagmite formations, riverside tea stops and plantations as we travel downstream through the Terai belt negotiating exciting white water rafting. With the Mahseer making it an angler'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.
