Kali Gandaki Gorge

I hear that there is a road to this gorge now. Can you hire a tour company for a drive here mixing with some hikes?

I am planning to come in Jan

Also is it possible to day hike around 8-12,000 feet around pokhara combing with driving?

If this does not work in Nepal..I am thinking about going to Sikkim where day hikes seems more feasible in mid level altitude in winter.

I suspect you are talking about world's deepest gorge in Dana; a small place littler up from Tatopani. I think you can visit this place on your own too, you can reach Pokhara, catch a bus or taxi to Beni and hire another taxi or use a bus or jeep to reach Dana or Tatopani.

You can also reach this gorge on a trek; you will need about a week.

by some estimates, world's deepest river gorge is considered to be near village of Lete between Dana and Kalopani on this Kali Gandaki River (literally counting Annapurna or Dhaulagiri as the rim) - you can trek to Lete or take a bus. You can then hike down to the river gorge from there -

as for hiking to 8000-12000 ft near pkohara - there are numerous options

I would suggest Poon Hill trek lasting 5 days - breathtaking views of Annpurna range

all the best

Agree with neupaneaj

The new Beni – Jomsom jeep road passes right through “The world's deepest river gorge” so getting there by either jeep or bus won’t be a problem.

Personally, I think the better trekking options are further up the valley – You could trek / jeep combo The Jomsom / Muktinath / Kagbeni Triangle.

Best Regards

There are actually busses from Beni to Jomosom, so you reach any village in between such as Lete or Marpha and do some hiking there.
