Rafting on the Seti River is a wonderful experience for those who want to soak themselves with the beauty of nature along with adventurous water sports. It is a trip for those who are willing to experience the stunning river scenery in Nepal without the intensity of complex or challenging rapids. Passing through the stunning jungle scenery, green hills, and valleys, rafting in the Seti river are the most beautiful moments to share with your family. You can raft here with your family as the raft is suitable for beginners as well. On the other hand, it is an excellent river for bird-watchers and those interested in the abundance of nature. Generally, this gentle river has plenty of small and straightforward rapids. Besides, the intensity of the rapids increases and attracts a radically different set of rafters during the monsoon.

Seti River Rafting offers the lightest rafting experience crosswise over forested terrains in the wonderful Annapurna of Nepal. A short multi-day rafting can be joined from two noteworthy urban areas Pokhara and Kathmandu. Seti River rafting is best experienced for those who want to witness the Nepalese landscapes as well as natural scenarios. Seti River lies in a remote region streaming down from the mountains between Annapurna and Manaslu Mountain. It is a perfect family trip that flows through a lovely forested region with numerous easy rapids. Besides, A two-day trip to Seti river rafts takes you to the beautiful villages, letting you explore some of the Nepalese culture and tradition.
The rafting usually starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Damauli. With the wilderness on the way, this river rafting rewards with natural sightings right along the river. Besides, one can explore the nearby village from the river, enjoy photography, bird watching, and have the chance to swim and relax on the sandy beach. Furthermore, covering the distance of 32 km ending at the confluence of the Trishuli and Seti River, it is one of the warmest rivers of Nepal.

 

Best Season for Seti River Rafting

 

In General, the best time for rafting in Seti river is usually from September to early December, and March to early June.

 

March to May

 

It is the summer season in Nepal with hot days. So, the water flows at a lower level which generally means the rapids are a grade lower than they are from September to November. However, due to the pre-monsoon storms and snowmelt, the level of rivers rose again in May.

 

June to August

 

June to August is a monsoon time in Nepal. During monsoon due to heavy rainfall, there is a high possibility of flood and landslides. Rains in the monsoon mean the rivers carry 10 times their low-water flows and can flood with 60 to 80 times the low-water levels which automatically makes rafting insanely difficult.

 

September to December

 

September to early December is one of the most popular times to raft or kayak, with warm, settled weather and exciting runs. However, during December the rivers become too cold to enjoy. You should have a wetsuit. Also, the days are shorter with the start of winter. Likewise, any water sports attempted at this time require a very experienced guide with intimate knowledge of the river and strong teams, as times of high flows are potentially the most dangerous times to be on a river.

 

Things to Bring

 

  • T-shirts, swimwear and paddles for on the river.
  • Also, bring on the extra clothes for the evenings.
  • Sunscreen, soaps, and shampoos for bathing after rafting.
  • Towels, personal belongings, as well as personal medicines (if needed)
  • Cameras or fishing hooks if you are interested.
  • Enjoy river rafting in one of the fast-flowing rivers in Nepal, the Seti River
  • Half-day rafting activity is an exhilarating experience that takes about 1.5 hours to complete.
  • Witness the view of the snow-capped Annapurna Mountain range while you paddle on the clean water that comes from the Himalayas.

The guide and porters go out of their way to make each and every member of the team feel safe and secured. Mr Babu the founder owner of the company is very responsive and is able to assist every member of the team with their individual needs. I would recommend engaging Unique Path for Himalaya trekking.

I like trekking with Unique Path, the guides of this company many times made my way comfortable and safe. I traveled with them to Lobuche, Mera, Island and other places solo and in the groups with my friends. Unique Path is a reliable partner and I plan to trek with them again in Langtang region this autumn.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ). You will very glad/happy if you choose Unique Path and Trekking.

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
