Kali Sharda Rafting Expedition
Kali Sharda rafting expedition is carried out on the lower section of Kali river (also called Kali Sharda), which forms a natural border between India and Nepal. This trip is disconnected from roads and civilization as the river enters a wide gorge from Pancheshwar and flows through the Terai jungles. Camp sites are heavenly on isolated remote beaches.
Region here is rich in flora and fauna, and one can easily sight a wide variety of rare birds and wildlife. It is one of a kind trip as we raft right in the middle of two countries. These campsites are white sand beaches, far off from any traces of civilization. After a long day of rafting, they will serve you just about right.
Our trip starts from Pancheshwar, and finishes at Tanakpur. This is a high volume river with mostly up to class III kind of rapids and one class IV rapid. In all we would be rafting for three days, and one day would be for transit. We would be camping for 03 nights at different locations as we travel down the river.
It is an exotic self supported rafting experience which has all the elements of remote wilderness, beautiful pristine beaches and action packed whitewater.
Kathgodam to Pancheshwar
Our expedition begins at Kathgodam or Rudrapur, depending on which station suits the participants. There are pickups arranged from Rudrapur and Kathgodam Railway Station from 6.00 am onwards, keeping in mind that most people will be arriving via the overnight trains. Most participants opt for the Roads & Journeys pick up and we assume the same in your case. In case you do not want the Roads & Journeys pickup, you will have to make your own travel arrangements. Once the participants have gotten together, we drive to Lohaghat or Pancheshwar, which is a 6 hour scenic drive. This is where the river Kali enters a wide gorge and flows through the Terai jungles. It also happens to be the point of Kali’s confluence with Saryu. It is here that we set up camp at the confluence of rivers Saryu and Kali. The rest of the day is yours to explore the nearby woods and forests, or test the waters that you will be embarking upon the next day. The nights are spent beside a warm bonfire and a hot meal cooked in the open. Spend the night at the confluence and soak in its scenic surroundings while falling asleep to the sound of the gushing water.
