TRIP HIGHLIGHTS
  • Variety of scenery including jungle, waterfalls and villages
  • Beautiful remote beach camping
  • Gentle enough for first timers or for families with kids
  • Paddle from Pokhara to Chitwan National Park – Get OFF the bus!

The Lower Seti River is the perfect venue for a unique family adventure. Starting only 1 ½ hours from Pokhara, this is a gentle river offering a great variety of scenery including local villages, terraced rice fields, waterfalls, suspension bridges, and jungle rich with wildlife. One night camping on a beautiful sandy beach combined with gentle to moderate whitewater rapids, warm water temperature and the convenience of ending near the famous Chitwan National Park – this trip provides the perfect combination of safety and excitement for an incredible family getaway.

We have child size safety equipment, including international ISO certified helmets & PFDs (personal floatation devices) and our crew have plenty of experience and sincerely enjoy working with kids.
Minimum age is typically 5 years old, but this depends on time of year, flow of water as well as size, strength, adventure level and swimming ability of each child.

More exciting rafting, kayaking and canyoning options are available for families with older children including the Upper Seti, Trisuli, Kaligandaki and Sun Koshi Rivers. Email us with information about your family and we will help you plan the perfect whitewater adventure for your kids.

Share the gift of adventure with your children on a unique family rafting and camping adventure!
