Setigandaki river

27, Nov 2019 |

Take a dip into the warmth Seti has to offer.

The Seti river also known as Setigandaki. It is the left tributary of Trishuli river which flows towards the western part of the country. It is one of the holiest river for Hindus, worshipped as Lord Vishnu. The Seti river was successfully descended for the first time in June 1971 AD by Jennifer Ide and Daniel C. Taylor. They went by raft, having to portage around the three-kilometer section where the whole Seti river goes underground. Rafting in Seti is quite interesting as the water is warm due to underwater heat.

This particular rafting trip would be an ideal two-day trip. It is graded as moderate, therefore, easy to navigate and probably the best river to practice kayaking. The put in point for Seti is Damauli, just 5 hour drive west of Kathmandu. The river action lengths about 35 km and leads to put out point Gaight, a 3 hour drive to Pokhara.

The warm river passes through the stunning jungle scenery, green hills and valleys. It is an ideal trip for those wanting to experience some of the wondrous river sceneries in Nepal without the intensity of complex or challenging rapids. Seti is a very suitable river for family trips and it's the best river to learn kayaking in Nepal. Seti will also prove to be an excellent river for bird-watchers and those keen on absorbing the abundant nature it has to provide.
