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.
