About Kali Gandaki Trekking

The Kali Gandaki follows the river bed northward to emerge in dry, desert- like Mustang, on the north side of the main Himalayan range. It is essentially the final third of the Annapurna Circuit, done in reverse. The Kali Gandaki is the deepest gorge in the world. It carries water from the Tibetan Plateau southward on its journey toward the Ganges. 

This rocky trail between the soaring peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri is suitable for people of all ages who are keen to experience the high Himalayas within a reasonably short time and without ascending to extreme altitude. The Kali Gandaki Trek attracts adventure and nature lovers as well as pilgrims seeking Muktinath, which means the place of salvation. The Muktinath Temple is surrounded by 108 natural stone taps and mysterious natural gas fires. 

The Kali Gandaki Trek offers insight into the life of ethnic hill tribes. The most prominent ethnic groups of this region are Gurung, Thakali and Manangba. There are ancient monasteries, caves and amazing scenery to explore. If you look closely you will surely see fossilized ammonites along the upper reaches of the Kali Gandaki River valley. Wildlife includes pika, blue sheep and Himalayan Thar. The Kali Gandaki Trek offers an amazing range of elevation which correlates with a remarkable diversity of flora. The trek begins in sub-tropical lowland forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron and fertile rice terraces and climbs up to high alpine meadows and the barren windswept desert of the Tibetan Plateau. 

The  Kali Gandaki Trek is possible at any time of the year. Unlike other parts of Nepal, this area is not affected by the monsoon since the Upper Mustang falls in the rain shadow area. Like most trekking routes in the Annapurna region, this trail is well facilitated by teahouses.

Travel options: There are several options for the Kali Gandaki Trek depending on your preferences. From Kathmandu it is possible to fly or go by road to Pokhara. From Pokhara, it is possible to fly to Jomsom, or to go by road to a trailhead at Nayapul, and trek to Jomsom. The same options apply to the return trip.  Just inform us about your preferences and we will supply the itinerary accordingly.
