Upper Seti River
Only Half Day Rafting Trip in Nepal
About the Upper Seti
Located just a half hour drive from Pokhara this action packed half day trip is perfect for those with less time. It provides continuous grade 3-4+ rapids for one wild hour of rafting. You will want our experience and our great safety record to navigate this thrill of a river. It is a steep low volume river that truly comes to life after the monsoon. It is truly short and sweet and acts as a great introduction into the wild rivers of Nepal. This trip leaves at 9:30AM and 1PM, most days during October-November and around May during the spring season.
Best time to Raft or Kayak the Upper Seti
When it comes to rafting or kayaking the Upper Seti, we here at Adrenaline Rush like to run it at its best. While this river can be rafted most of the year, during low water season this river truly empties of all its great fun. The Upper Seti, more so than most other rivers in Nepal, should be done during a time with good water volume. These dates vary as the weather and seasons will vary from year to year. Most years the best time for this river is during October-November and April to May during the spring season. Some years by mid-November the water levels shrink rapidly, sometimes years it won't happen until early December. Just as well, May tends to be a better month than April for this trip as the country waits for the start of rain after the long dry winter. There is nothing greater than experiencing a river at its best time, so come book with us and we'll see to it!
