Dharampani is a charming little Nepali hamlet, set just above the Seti River. It is also a trading hub for the Bandipur Municipality of Central Nepal, with a busy marketplace attracting villagers from the surrounding hills. Affected to a large extent by the Nepal earthquakes of 2015, organizations are at work redeveloping the little village. This local Gurung settlement serves as a perfect dining stopover whether you’re out rafting or just touring the scenic region. Your interactions with the warm hearted and hospitable local community could help you get a better understanding of everyday life in a typical Nepali village, with tourism helping in the effort to rebuild the community.

Rafting and Overnight Stay at Seti River Camp

After breakfast in Pokhara, drive for an hour and a half through the countryside to reach Damauli, where a boat crew will be waiting to brief you. Strap on your safety gear and start rafting down the Seti River. Observe the many species of birds that inhabit the verdant forests on each side of the river. Along the way, stop by the sandy bank for a picnic style lunch. Afterwards, it’s time to journey further downriver, until you reach the rapids. At the end of your adventure, rest in safari style ensuite tents as you catch the sunset from your veranda. Enjoy a hearty al fresco dinner by the tranquil riverside.
