The Kali river is on the Indo-Nepal border. This river trip takes you down the upper sections of this river and you would be rafting through a variety of landscape including thick forest, farms, sandy beaches, etc. before you hit the plains. In addition to the natural beauty, there are a number of Class II - IV rapids to relish and the lack of any road support makes the trip a truly outdoor experience.
