Fall (September to early December) brings in clear weather with sunny days and warm nights. Spring (March to May) with occasional rain falls. From June to September, is the monsoon season. Uncomfortable time to visit as the climate of Nepal at this time of year brings about hot weather and rain falls almost every day.

The rafting down the Seti River is an ideal way to link Pokhara and Chitwan. What I found most amazing was that the camp was located in a very remote part of Nepal, far from any road or dusty town. If you have two days at the camp you can take a day walk to local villages which offer a very authentic look into rural Nepalese community life. The rafting is good, with some rapids to get the heart beat going, but on the whole it is more of a float with a few rapids along the way. The water is higher at the end of monsoon (in October) and the river is unraftable from May onwards. In fact, its best to avoid April as it will be very hot and the tents do not have air conditioning.
