Kali River, Dharchula Overview

The Kali river in Uttarakhand is a majestic river that distinguishes the border of India from that of Nepal. This river is the perfect place for hydroelectric power generation descending from a height of 3600 meters and is duly harvested by the many power plants in the region. In addition to being a source of power, the Kali river is also a site of scenic beauty.

Nestled away in the midst of picturesque mountains, the Kali River is a quaint little spot tucked away in Uttarakhand. This area also has a small shrine dedicated to Goddess Kali, after whom the river is named. The river passes through the town of Dharchula before it exits the high mountains.

On both sides of the river lies the market town of Jhulaghat where one can easily purchase the local merchandise. The banks of this river make up for a tranquil picnic spot to spend some time in the company of nature and loved ones.
