And in this region a Tibetan-influenced village, prayer wheels, chortens and a Buddhist monastery follow the Kaligandaki River through Jomsom, the world’s deepest gorge; Annapurna Himal on one side and Dhaulagiri on the other side. The river freezes in winter and is drained by rainwater and snowmelt in summer and monsoon. On the banks of the Kali Gandaki, which flows into the Kaligandaki river that flows from here, are found black fossilized stones called Shaligrams, which are considered iconic symbols and reminders of Lord Vishnu in Hindu culture.
