Rafting the Seti River
The Seti River is perfect if you are combining Pokhara and Chitwan National Park and takes two days to raft, stopping off for the night beside the river in the Seti River Camp, or just for a day if you are walking down from Bandipur. It can mainly be described as a leisurely float, with rapids occurring every 30 minutes or so. They are classed as II level rapids, so not too challenging, and perfect for first-timers, families and those just wanting a relaxing time heading down the river through unspoilt countryside. Your luggage is stored safely in water-tight drums, and you will be issued with all the safety gear including helmets, life-jackets and paddles. You always have one private raft for your party. An experienced and fully qualified captain will do all the paddling except during the rapids when he will call on you to help out! The entry point is near the village of Damauli, about a 1.5-hour drive from Pokhara and the exit point is Gaighat with a two-hour drive onto Chitwan.
