Course

The Rahughat Khola (stream) originates from several glaciers and snowfields on the south-west face of Dhaulagiri and flows southwest in its open glacial valley among old moraines, alpine pastures and sub-alpine forests. Then the stream drops into a narrow canyon, heading southeast through temperate and then sub-tropical forests, past scattered villages such as Chimkhola, Darmija, Dagnam, Pakhapani, Kotgaun, Jhin, Wakhet, Rakhu etc. The Rahughat khola (stream) joins the Kali Gandaki river at Galeshwor area, above Beni bajaar. This is a beautiful river. People still called this river in various names such as Raghu Ganga, Rabar khola, Rahughat khola, Sunsari khola etc.

There is an organisation known as "Rahughat Khola Sero-Fero UK" in the UK which was established in 23-August- 2008 in London in relation to this river.
