About Upper Buri Gandaki

The upper part of the Buri Gandaki river flows through a spectacular gorge with canyon walls shooting up to a thousand meters.  This upper river offers some escitig possibilities for exploration kayaking in the spectacular valley. The Kayaking here is somewhat similar to that of Marsyandi’s kayaking, however it consistes of sharp nasty rocks which was a result of landslide some decades back. You can trek up the valley of Buri Gandaki on the ‘High route around Manasalu’ and the trail up river from Arughat has a few tea houses.
