River Rafting Tour Kali Sarda Duration
: 10 Nights / 11 Days
The rafting/kayaking expedition down the Kali
Sarda river provides some classic Grade IV rafting thrills. The Valley of
the Kali has always been a trading route up to Tibet and ancient Tibetans
used to trek for 6 to 8 weeks down to India to trade their rather meager
wares for salt. One can notice the Tibetan influence in this region. The
Kali Sarda river for most of its length demarcates the western boundary
between India and Nepal.
