The Seti River, located about three-quarters of the way to Pokhara from Kathmandu, is a pleasant, low-key place for a rafting excursion. Considered perfect for beginners, this package is particularly suitable for families and for those who do not care to face the heavier, sometimes more frightening rapids. The Seti River gets its name from the white hue of its waters. It starts high in the Annapurna range. The flow of the Seti River is quite calm and the water is warmer than most rivers in Nepal. Technically speaking, the rafting grade is class 2-3. For this reason, it’s perfect for travelers who prioritize comfort over thrill.
From Kathmandu, we drive on the Prithvi Highway for about 6-7 hours to reach Pokhara. The drive itself Is beautiful. The road carves over and around rolling hills. Enjoy the scenery of small villages, terraced hillsides, and lovely rivers throughout the drive. Arriving in Pokhara around midday, take the rest of the day to wander around lakeside or do some sightseeing. Check out the Peace Pagoda, David Falls, Begnas Lake, or anything else that peaks your interest.
The following day, we head for the river. Enjoy floating down the tranquil waters and passing the changing sceneries. We get glimpses of the Himalaya peeking behind the jungle as we glide along the rapids. When we reach near Saran Ghat, we hop of the rafts and set up camp near the shore of the river. We’ll have a campfire and a delicious dinner near the water. Watch the stars and enjoy the night! Sleeping in a tent near the foot of the Himalayas is an awesome experience.
The next day, we raft a bit further. Our ride awaits in Gai Ghat, and we drive back to Kathmandu. Do note that there are numerous ways to extend this adventure. Combine our rafting trip with paragliding, bungee jumping, jungle safari, and/or a trek. Let us know your interests and we will manage the perfect combination package for you!
