Upper Seti Rafting 9am – 12:30pm
Only 30 minutes from Pokhara’s Lakeside, this short and sweet rafting 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 – rafting the Upper Seti River is the ultimate half day trip in Nepal.

Its a 20 minute ride up the mountain to Sarangkot, the famous viewpoint spot 900 meters above Lakeside. This is where you and your tandem pilot will launch to enjoy a 20 to 30 minute flight above the Pokhara valley enjoying views of Phewa lake, the Pokhara valley and with some luck the majestic Annapurna mountains.
