Rafting in Seti River can have a reasonably short rafting trip and offers two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas of Manaslu and Annapurna regions. Seti River has relatively small volume but blue and warm water, and we recommend this as an ideal short trip for first time rafters or as "Warm-up" for intermediate kayakers. Seti is the best River for learning to kayak in Nepal, as she has the very best character for this. The water temperature is incredibly warm, making it a popular choice for winter trips and also for kayak clinics for the course of beginners, diploma and advanced as well. After your exciting white water rafting trip you have options either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu or to visit Chitwan National Park or again you can go for the trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for a few days.
Most of the year, the Seti river is famous for its dazzling landscape. It is a gentle river, attracting families, bird watchers, nature lovers and dreamers. However, during the monsoon, its swollen rapids prove an exciting test for experienced rafters and kayakers. The abundant vegetation visible along the river is a remnant of the vast forested area, which once covered the middle hills of Nepal. This area is inhabited by Magar who are renowned for generations of service with the Gurkha forces. Saranghat is a colorful middle hill village where you will have first night's camp on a spacious beach below the village.
The put in point of the Seti River is Madi River Bridge at Damauli and after 2 days River rafting action takes out at Gaighat below the Trishuli River confluence. Transferring at Damauli is accessible from Pokhara (appr.2 hr.) and from Kathmandu (appr.4:30 hr.) , Chitwan National Park (appr.1hr.) by drive.
