Seti River Rafting

Trip Introduction

Seti River Rafting
Seti River Rafting is a short trip passing the crystal clear water of Seti River with beautiful views of Annapurna and Manaslu. In terms of size, Seti River is relatively small, which is preferable for inexperienced rafters. It is said that Seti River is considered as the finest river to learn ‘Kayak’, due to her supreme character designed for it. Usually, the water of rivers in Nepal is labeled as cold but here, the water of Seti River is unbelievably warm and rafters think that this river is suitable and meant for the winter season. It is an interesting river with unique characteristics of warmth. You can enjoy the warm water rafting in winter too.
Seti River goes up on southeast slopes of Machhapuchhare from there it runs south. Seti River is well known for its calm and moderate characteristics and alluring scenery. Mostly Seti River may have a great impression on those tourists who love nature and especially to daydreamers. It is said that in monsoon season, its engorged rapids verify an exhilarating test for those Kayakers and skilled rafters. It is necessary to know that the best season for the Rafting in Seti River in October. We have a facility for providing high-quality self-bailing rafts, helmets, plastic paddles, lifejackets, and first aid kids. We do not hesitate to provide their customers with abundant and healthy hygienic foods.
By the side of the river, there is a trace of the lavish enormous forest, which was enclosed with the hills. At present this area is settled by the Magar people, who are well known as the Gorkha Soldier from generation to generation. If you are planning to stay overnight there then Saran Ghat will be your destination where you are facilitated with sleeping mats and tents but sleeping bags are provided as per your request. When you are done Rafting in Seti River, you can extend your adventure to the Royal Chitwan National Park or Pokhara; otherwise, we will head back to Kathmandu for the farewell dinner.
