    Destination

    The Seti River is a famous river that flows in the western region of Nepal, as a left tributary of the Trishuli River. It originates from the Annapurna massif and flows all the way south and south-east past Pokhara and Damauli to meet the Trishuli River near Devghat.

    Apart from flowing through some stunning destinations with exotic views, this river is known to be one of the holiest Rivers of Nepal, worshipped in Hinduism especially by Vishnu believers.

    For this river rafting trip, you’ll be rafting along the upper region of this river which is commonly referred to as the Upper Seti River. Starting from Pokhara you’ll begin your rafting session from the Bamboo Bridge and end it at the Upper Seti River Dam.
