e start the day early and after a two and a half hour drive to Sheraghat we reach the start point of the expedition. After a comprehensive talk on river safety as well as basic instructions, you are ready to negotiate the thrill of grade 3 to 4 rapids. An enthralling experience, interspaced with the amazing view of passing through distant villages and experiencing the Himalayas at their best. We pitch camp late afternoon, followed by dinner around the campfire and you are ready to dream about the day that was.
The day begins with a grade 4 rapid. Enjoy the challenges the river has to offer, there are over fifteen grade 3 to 4 rapid till the confluence of Saryu and Ramganga East at Rameshwar. The Ramganga East adds more volume to the river adding punch to the rapids. The section below Ghat is relatively easy and gives you a chance to bodysurf or just experience the tranquil beauty of the valley. In the afternoon, we pitch camp on a sandy beach and relax after a long paddle on the water. In the evening you can choose to hike or laze around the campfire, eat dinner and enjoy a well-deserved hot meal around the fire. Camp overnight.
Expect loads of thrills today as we raft through the confluence of Kali and Saryu at Pancheshwar. The Kali River brings loads of volume of water to make it a big Himalayan River. his stretch of river runs through a remote wilderness valley. The verdant untouched beauty around is breath taking with some grade 3+ rapids and has us all wishing for the day not to end. We camp around Rupali gaon. Camp overnight.
The River run from Rupali gaon to Pari gaon takes us through Kali's biggest rapid, the 'Chuka', a grade 4+ rapid. As the rapid has several channels we will scout around before running it. A few more grade 3 rapids before we reach camp across the river from Pari gaon. There will be plenty to discuss and remember about the day when we sit around the campfire tucking into a hot, delicious meal. Camp overnight.
Layover Day. Today you can take the day at your own pace, after breakfast we hike to Chuka Village. The village has an interesting history and its shot at fame is that it was here that the conservationist and wildlife enthusiast Jim Corbett, famous for slaying a large number of man-eating tigers and leopards in India, shot a Man eating tiger. We will be exploring the village.....now that the man eater's are dead..!! We return to camp for hot lunch. Afternoon free to laze around the camp or take a nature walk and explore the remote surrounding, sunbathe, bird watch, try a hand at fishing or just lay on the beach and read a book.
The last day on the river we start from Pari gaon to reach the take out at Boom. he change in geography is apparent as we enter the Terai region and often share the river with elephants. The last section runs through a stunning canyon with exciting grade 3 to 4 rapids. After lunch we load up and drive to Kathgodam to board the overnight train to Delhi.
This is the end of the journey folks we're back to Delhi, bright and early.
