SETI  KHOLA– The perfect
introduction to Himalayan
whitewater

3 Days. 
River Distance: 63kms
Grade (high water): II-III

Himalayan rafting simply means team work and camaraderie in an idyllic wilderness setting…in a word, the Seti River.  Its waters flow through technical chutes and channels allowing our skills as paddlers to grow.  The rapids are grade II and III – big waves, challenging holes and narrow runs all ‘wetting’ your appetite for more!

The beauty of The Seti extends beyond its warmish sparkling waters.  The Seti Khola is in an isolated gorge surrounded by luscious jungle.  You can spot abundant wildlife along the river banks including monkeys, deer and a wide array of birds and butterflies.  Several villages are nestled neatly into the face of the gorge allowing us to stop for a village walk along the way.

Mid-day on the 3rd day is the take-out point down stream of where The Seti has joined
the Trisuli.  From here it’s less that an hour
to Chitwan National Park.
