Kali Gandaki has a reputation of the deepest valley in the world. By the village Larjung (at an altitude of about 2550m asl) is valley nearly a kilometer-wide and doesn´t look like the canyon. But directly above him, however, rises eight-thousand Dhaulagiri which it exceeds about 5.5 km. The river at these locations intersects the main Himalayan ridge.
