Upper Seti River Kayaking – 1/2 Day

“Short and Sweet”

  • Super fun, exciting non-stop rapids
  • Steep, technical whitewater
  • Mountain views and beautiful gorge
  • Only 30 minutes from Lakeside
  • Sleep in special
  • Crew favorite

Only 30 minutes from Pokhara’s Lakeside, this short and sweet paddling adventure offers 1 ½ hours of non-stop adrenaline filled class III+/IV rapids. With fantastic Annapurna mountain views, crystal clear Himalayan whitewater and a beautiful gorge decorated with a suspension bridge and prayer flags – kayaking the Upper Seti River is the ultimate half day trip in Nepal.

Mother Nature packs more rapids into 90 minutes on the Upper Seti than some other rivers provide in 2 to 3 days, making this a crew favorite right here in our own back yard.

We run the Upper Seti twice a day, giving you the flexibility to fit in all the other great activities that Pokhara – “adventure capital of Nepal” has to offer!

If you are looking for the perfect little adrenaline fix, without the hassle of packing up & driving long distances – then look no further!
