The river offers an excellent medium length white water rafting trips and views of the Anapurna Region as you run some moderate to difficult rapids which make this river awesome. The river is named after the color of the water and the Godess Kali, so the river considered being holy and auspicious place to be cremated. The river originates from the Tibetan plateau draining the water of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himal joins with Trishuli at Dave Ghat. Then the Sapta Gandaki is called Narayani. The Kali George between the 8000m mountains Annapurna and Dhaulagiri is the deepest George in the world.
