The Seti River is great for people who are new to the sport of whitewater rafting. It is an easy 2 day raft departing from Damauli, and merging into the Trisuli River by the second day. This trip offers beautiful mountain views of the Annapurna South, Fish-Tail Mountain and Lamjung Himal.
You can have a short trip in the Seti River that offers beautiful mountain views, the tropical forest glance and also unique river passing through two beautiful and Breathtaking scenic areas of Manaslu and Annapurna regions (Something Magical).

Seti is Best River for learning kayak in Kaski district of Nepal as it has a very best character for rafting and all.
