    Aquaterra

    In May 2005, Aquaterra Adventures opened the entire Tons river, 19 years after it was run in 1986. And continues to be the only outfitter running regular descents on this section, continuing to set the industry benchmark in running all of India’s wild raftable rivers. On the Middle Tons between Lunagad and Tiuni, the river drops at an average rate of 32 feet per kilometer. This includes a drop of 78 feet per kilometer over the last three and a half kilometers before Tiuni. Amazing scenery and world-class whitewater make this a premier expedition for the whitewater paddler.

    We run several rapids ranging from Class III to Class IV+/V, with whitewater sections separated by a hundred yards or less of flat water. It aims to propagate the sheer adrenaline and magic of taking on 40 km of quality whitewater from Gyunhatti till Tiuni, in what could possibly be one of the finest whitewater experiences possible in the world today.
