Rafting and  kayaking in Seti khola in Nepal 

Rafting in Seti River Map 

Departure Point...........Kathmandu or Pokhara
River Start Point………….Damauli
River Finish Point…………Narayanghat
River Grade…………..III

Duration: 01 Night / 02 Days

Day 01:
We leave Kathmandu in the early morning and drive to Damauli, our put in point. After the rafts are rigged we will set off down the Seti Khola. 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. Traveling by rafts is a perfect way to view undisturbed.

Day 02:
After we have finished breakfast and repacked the raft, we will set off down 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 away to sandstone and gavel deposited by antecedent rivers. After lunch we have opportunity to visit a unique religious community , Devhgat . Each Year thousands of pilgrims visit the ashram to worship. At this point Kali Gandaki joins the Trisuli River . The river now becomes the Narayani River . We float further down to a small town Narayanghat. Where we end our River trip.
