The Seti Khola River is famous for its dazzling scenery throughout the year. It 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 Seti is the best river for learning kayak in Nepal.
You can have a fairly short trip in the Seti River. It offers you beautiful mountain views and also unique river passing through two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas of the 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 a "Warm-up" for intermediate kayakers. Seti is the best River for learning kayak in Nepal as ‘she’ has the very best character for this. The water temperature is incredibly warm, making it a popular choice for winter trips and also for kayak clinics for the course of beginners, diploma and advanced as well. After your exhilarating wild water trip you have options; either to drive or fly back to Kathmandu, or to visit the Royal Chitwan National Park, or again you can go for a trekking trip in the popular area of Annapurna region for a few days.
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 are renowned for generations of service with the Gurkha forces. Saranghat is a colorful middle hill village where you will have first night's camp on a spacious beach below the village.
