Seti River Rafting
The Seti river rafting is considered the best river rafting for people to first experience the thrills of rafting or kayaking. For most of the year it is a gentle river, attracting families and bird watchers with its gentle rapids. It is classed from 2 to 3+ depending on the season. If you are more experienced and would like a tougher challenge why not try it out in monsoon season where the water levels are considerably higher.
This surprisingly warm river passes through beautiful scenery with large green hills and valleys all around. That is the another reason why tourist love to come Nepal.
Nature lovers will enjoy the abundance of different bird species you will see as you travel along the waters of the Seti.
For those wanting a family rafting trip or who are new to the activity the Seti is perfect. It offers the excitement of the rapids without the intensity of complex or challenging rapids.
