    We travel to the far west and arrive in Surkhet very late/early hours of the next morning; you are able to have a sleep here.

  • Day 02 Put-in point at Sauli:

    After breakfast, we will take a truck as far as the road goes until about lunch time [this all depends on availability be flexible]. After lunch we walk all afternoon to the put-in point at Sauli. A great walk which high lights just how "out there" you really are. You pass local villages and spectacular scenery, and then you hit the river.

  • Day 03 Ready for wild ride:

    After having heavy breakfast at 8:00 a.m. we get ready for wild ride. This section of the River is terribly wild. Continues rapid makes rafter forget to breathe. Lunch will be served en-route and camping at 03:00 p.m. in First Inquiry.

  • Day 04 Enter into the Jungle Corridor:

    This is the type of day that people imagine when they think of Himalayan water. It is big and continuous. We enter into the Jungle Corridor. This is a narrowing jungle clad gorge and it is all ours. The team building is put into full practice and when your guide shouts "all forward " he really means it. Enjoy the ride all day and camp in this sensational setting at God-house.

  • Day 05 Camp at the Seti Dovan:

    More of the same including the notorious GOD'S house rapid. Camp at the Seti Dovan and relax.

  • Day 06 Camping at Jamuna village:

    It isn't over yet! Keep paddling hard! You really are experiencing the best of the west on yet another day of great action and breathe taking scenery and camping at Jamuna village.

  • Day 07 Rest day:

    This is a holiday after all so we have programmed a rest day so you can take time to enjoy your surroundings and relax on a great sandy beach.

  • Day 08 Rafting expedition:

    We see the rapids dying off as we come out of the gorge. We pass the confluence with the Seti River where the river broadens. Today, the next day and a half is a chance to enjoy your journey admiring the country and villages you pass. You will have seen the safety kayakers in action and will no doubt be inspired, so ask the guides for some supervised instruction, or take over the raft and learn about the river. You see there is more to a rafting expedition than just rafting.
