Seti River Rafting
Seti River Rafting is one of the most beautiful short rivers rafting in Nepal. Seti River is located in the mid-western Nepal. The name Seti which literally means white in Nepali is given to it for the deposition of minerals like chalk and lime carried by the river. Seti River is fed by the Annapurna Himal range and holy Mt. Machhapauchhare high in the Himalaya and flows down with the great force. The river eventually joins the Trishuli to form the Narayani River. The warm water of the river adds more relaxation to the trip as the water in the river is heated by the underground spring and geothermal heat.
