Description

Rafting in Seti River, You can have a fairly short trip in the Seti River and offers beautiful mountain views and also unique river passing through two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas of Manaslu and Annapurna regions. This 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 Best River for learning kayakin Nepal as she has very best character for this. The water temperature is incredibly warm, making it a popular choice for winter trips and also for kayakclinics for the course of beginners, diploma and advanced as well. After your exhilarating white water trip you have options either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu or to visit the Chitwan National Park or again you can go for the trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for few days.

Most of the year, the Seti is famous for its dazzling scenery 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 luxuriant 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 nights camp on a spacious beach below the village.

After you complete the rafting adventure trip with Himalaya Family Adventure, you get a choice between coming back to Kathmandu or continuing journey to visit the Chitwan National Park or to Pokhara.
