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 the best river for learning kayak in Nepal. The water temperature is incredibly warm, making it a popular choice for winter trips and also for kayak clinics for the course for beginners.
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 is renowned for generations of service with the Gurkha forces.
