“Easy Does It”

highlighttopBKG-01
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!

This unique river passes through two beautiful and contrasting scenic areas offering a good variety of Nepal’s landscapes with local villages, terraced rice fields, waterfalls, suspension bridges, jungle rich with wildlife and a beautiful white sandy beach for camping under the stars. With fairly small water volume and a very pleasant warm water temperature the Lower Seti is a great introduction to whitewater adventure, perfect for families, first timers, nature lovers or those interested in learning river kayaking. Finishing near the Chitwan National Park, this is a great way to get off the beaten track, and enjoy a refreshing alternative to the bus to get to one of Nepal’s most popular adventure travel destinations

If you are looking for a gentle river adventure, travelling with young children or simply looking for a unique way to get from Pokhara to Chitwan, then this is the perfect trip.
