Seti River Rafting Trip Overview

If you seek the ideal adrenaline rush without the inconvenience of packing up and embarking on lengthy drives, your search ends here!

Seti River offers a great introduction to whitewater rafting for new people. The 2-day raft is easy, leaving from Damauli and merging with the Trisuli River on the second day. It can also be done in a single day, though it will be more tiring. This trip provides beautiful views of Annapurna, Fishtail Mountain, and Lamjung Himal. Seti River Rafting perfectly combines an Annapurna Trek and a Chitwan Jungle Safari. The rafting begins on the southeast slopes of Mt. Machhapuchare, flows south, and is a unique river that passes through two scenic and beautiful areas.

Seti River is a unique, pleasant, and picturesque river passing through two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas. Relatively small volume, blue, and warm water make this perfect rafting for beginners, intermediate, and familiars. The Seti Rafting begins on the southeast slopes of the sacred Mountain Fishtail and then flows south as a fairly typical Nepalese mountain river. The gentle river gives way to plenty of small and straightforward rapids. During the monsoon, the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters. Depending on the time of year, the Seti River can offer an ideal trip for those wanting to experience a first-time river adventure or just learning to kayak.

The gentle Seti River has plenty of small rapids in classes 2 and 3. The intensity of the rapid increases during the monsoon months, so if you’re looking for a much gentler and warmer rafting experience October to December and March to June are the perfect seasons for you. It is an ideal trip for someone who wants to experience the exquisite scenery of Nepali landscapes with local villages, terraced fields, and beautiful sandy beaches to camp during the warm starry night without facing challenging rapids. This rafting trip finishes at Chitwan National Parkwhich makes it easier for someone who wants to spend a few days in the peaceful valley of Chitwan and for someone who wants to avoid traveling to Chitwan from Pokhara on a bus.  It is also very well recommended for family trips and the best river to learn kayaking in Nepal.

The Seti River has stunning scenery for 12 months out of the year. It is a great place to go bird-watching, nature-glancing, and daydreaming. The current can be quite fast during the monsoon, which is an exciting challenge for experienced kayakers and rafters.

Before leaving for Dmauli we meet at your hotel. We have two options to go to Damauli. Either we can take a 30-minute scenic flight to Pokhara and a 1-hour drive to Damlai, or we drive in a luxurious tourist Bus/van for 5 hours. Upon arriving Damauli crew members welcome us and brief us about safety measures. After the safety talk we, wear necessary safety equipment and commence paddling downstream. At the very first step, we meet grade III rapid then pass the smooth curve. Raft master also helps you paddle. After a bend, we raft on clear water between dense forests echoed by twittering birds. In between, we loosen ourselves and take some photos of the beautiful scenery. After four hours of rafting, we reach to Sarang Ghat, where we set up the tent for today. After loosening our self we walk around the beach, have a short forest walk, and play games on the sand beach. In the evening we enjoy a campfire, barbeque, drinks, and signing-dancing with the fellow rafter. Overnight in camp.

After breakfast, we continue to paddle downstream in relatively more rapid currents than yesterday as the river goes flows steeply and meets three confluences of a small stream. After 1 hour we encounter extreme current nearby debris of a landslide which requires attention and technique. Today we raft in peaceful and tranquil surroundings with echoes of birds' songs and ripples and triples of water until we reach the confluence of Trisuli and Seti Gandaki River in Gaighat.

After Gaigaht, we raft in a high level of water for half an hour and move over to the shore. After that, we will either drive to Bharatpur airport for flying back to Kathmandu or drive via Mugling-Kathmandu road for 5 hours to reach Kathmandu.
