Seti Karnali River Rafting

Seti Karnali River RaftingA remote, beautiful, and little-travelled river that offers the same jungle wilderness and abundant wildlife as the Lower Karnali but at moderate difficulty.

The Seti rises wholly in Nepal on the flanks of the highest mountains in the Far West; Api 7132m, and Saipal 7031m and then flows south and southeast to join the Karnali. This is a remote valley, far from Kathmandu, that sees very few foreigners and has only had a few river descents. Although remote from Kathmandu, there is road access to the put in. Local people follow an unchanged lifestyle as subsistence farmers, and are naturally curious and friendly.

Rafting: This is not one of the main-line raft trips and you can be pretty well assured that you will be the only group on the river, probably that season! The rapids are fairly easy class three but the river flows through one of the remotest areas in Nepal with pristine jungle, plenty of wildlife and beautiful sandy beaches.

Kayaking: An easy river-trip and well recommended for the intermediate kayaker who wants to get away from everything! Great play potential and a steady current makes it a pleasant trip that will lead you straight into the Karnali and then into the Bardia National Park.
