About Lower Buri Gandaki

Buri Gandaki drains the eastern slopes of Manaslu and the Ganesh Himal before flowing south through a steep-sided valley to join the Trishuli River upstream of Muglung. The river here flows through an open valley with beautiful scenery of the mountains to the north. A trip from Arughat is very straight forward and we believe that in low water, this would probably be a suitable trip for people of limited experience who want to do their own thing – also a suitable river for ‘duckies’, inflatable kayaks. A (3-4) day trek from Baglung is highly recommended as it offers majestic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from the top of the ridge.
