  • Trip introduction

    This rafting expedition offers you a chance to go rafting in the wild rapids of the Kali river in Uttarakhand, and camp at night on pristine river beaches. You'll take on Grade II and III rapids, and see some of the most gorgeous territory in the region.

    In the calmer sections of the river, you'll be able to take swims, splash about, and enjoy paddling. At night, you'll retreat into your tents, pitched on the shores of the river, surrounded by magnificent views of the mountains and forests of the lower Himalayas.

    IMPORTANT: Do make sure you plan your arrival in Rudrapur early in the morning. This gives you the whole day to enjoy the campsite experience at Pancheshwar.

    NOTE: This package requires at least 10 persons to book at this price. If you have less than 10 in your group, please click the Enquire button above for custom pricing.

    Destination

    Away from the popular hotspots, the Kali River flows down from the glaciers of Himalayas, along the Indo-Nepal border in Uttarakhand. This rafting expedition will take you along that route, with India on the right and Nepal on the left. Apart from challenging rapids at every turn, you'll encounter some of the most beautiful landscapes of Terai jungles, overflowing with rare birds and alpine wildlife.

    Destination highlights

    • Participate in a river rafting expedition on the Kali River.
    • Stay in tents pitched at isolated beaches and campsites along the river.
    • Spend three days rafting down the Kali River.
    • Explore the thick forests and sprawling mountains of Uttarakhand.
