Lower Seti River Rafting Overview
White water river rafting is one of the most adventurous activities in Nepal to do along with Paragliding, Bungee Jump, Zipline in Pokhara and more. Enjoy the fast-flowing Seti River in a secluded area surrounded by beautiful forests. Rafting in the Seti river is one of the best options for experiencing the thrust of white water. Due to its easy rapids, Seti river rafting is ideal for rafting beginners. Lying near a jungle, Seti River can be the best place to raft in the midst of pristine wildlife. As the river flows from the Himalayan peaks, it possesses plenty of small and straightforward rapids. If you can’t get enough rapids, you can opt for river rafting in the monsoon season. The monsoon rain adds to the intensity of rapids in the rivers which are vigorous and wild.

Seti River Rafting starts at Damauli, a small village that lies on the Prithivi Highway between Mugling and Pokhara. We take a drive for around two hours until we reach Damauli. We then attend a short briefing program and begin our 32 kilometres rafting. In the end, we reach the convergence of the Trishuli and Kaligandaki Rivers at Devghat.

Trek Distance 32 KM
Day 1: Pokhara – Damauli – Rafting, 2 hrs drive and 3 hrs rafting.
We leave Pokhara in the morning and drive to Damauli, 2 hrs, our put-in point. After the rafts are rigged we will set off down the Seti River. We spend the whole day within its forested canyon. The luxuriant vegetation we see is a remnant of the vast forested area, which once covered the middle hills of Nepal. Even now we are objects of curiosity to the villagers.
Travelling by raft is a perfect way to view undisturbed wildlife. When we stop for lunch we have time to explore, Photograph, bird watch, swim or relax. Later in the afternoon, we encounter a small, but technical rapid near the village of Saranghat. Inhabited by Magars, who are renowned for generations of service with the Gurkha forces Saranghat, is a colourful middle hills village. We will set up camp on a spacious beach below the village. Lunch and dinner included.
Day 2: Riverside Camp – Rafting – Chitwan/Kathmandu, 4 hrs rafting and 3 - 4 hrs driving.
After we have finished breakfast and repacked the raft, we will set off down the river. Later we encounter the technical rapid grade 3 shortly after the rapid we leave Seti Khola and enter Trisuli River. Here the middle hills recede and the Terai plain opens before us. The Topography has changed dramatically. The twisted severe rock formations give way to sandstone and gravel deposited by antecedent rivers. After lunch, we have the opportunity to visit a unique religious community, Devghat. Each Year thousands of pilgrims visit the ashram to worship. The rafting ends at Gaighat and drives back to Kathmandu or visit Chitwan National Park.
