Kali Gandaki Gorge Trek

DIFFICULTY LEVEL

MODERATELY HARD

DURATION

22 DAYS

MAX ALTITUDE

3710m

This trek takes you through the gentle environment of the Annapurna Region. In the Annapurna region you will trek through the Pokhara Valley with its panoramic views of Machhapuchhare and the Annapurna massif, the picturesque Gurung villages of the hills and the rhododendron forested ridge lines that provide stunning vantage points for views of the highest peaks.

 

The Kali Gandaki Gorge trekking or Andha Galchi is the gorge of the Kali Gandaki (or Gandaki River) in the Himalayas in Nepal. By some measures the Kali Gandaki gorge trek is the deepest gorge in the world, being 5,571 m or 18,278 ft lower than Annapurna I which bounds it at one point. Gorge depth is difficult to define due to disagreement over rim height so this claim is disputed.

 

The upper part of the gorge is also called Thak Khola after the local Thakali people who became prosperous from trans-Himalayan trade. Geologically, the gorge is within a structural graven.

 

The gorge separates the major peaks of Dhaulagiri (8,167 m or 26,795 ft) on the west and Annapurna (8,091 m or 26,545 ft) on the east. If one measures the depth of a canyon by the difference between the river height and the heights of the highest peaks on either side, the gorge is the world’s deepest. The portion of the river directly between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I (7 km downstream from Tukuche) is at an elevation of 2,520 m or 8,270 ft, 5,571 m or 18,278 ft lower than Annapurna I. As tectonic activity forced the mountains higher, the river cut down through the uplift. This region is known for shaligram fossils, revered as one of five non-living forms of Lord Vishnu.
