• Trip introduction

    The Tons is a tributary of the Yamuna river that flows through the Gharwal region of Uttarakhand. On this expedition, 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. The sheer adrenaline rush and magic of taking on 40 kms of quality whitewater from Gyunhatti till Tiuni, can only be described as one of the finest whitewater experiences in the country, and is not for the faint-hearted.

    Camping in the lap of nature, amongst the thickly forested hills of deodar, pine and chestnut, combined with short treks to the surrounding areas, make this a memorable getaway from the summer heat.

    Where is the lugguage stored when travellers are rafting?

    Water-proof bags are kept aboard the raft for keeping cameras on the trip and on longer self-contained, multi-day expeditions, bigger water-proof bags are carried to keep all baggage on the raft completely dry. Every raft also carries rescue bags and flip lines to counter any emergency.


    Whitewater rafting on the Tons, a small volume, class 4 river offers an excellent adrenaline rush and adds to the excitement of being in the outdoors. On the Middle Tons between Lunagad and Tiuni, the river drops at an average rate of 32 feet per kilometer.

    Spectacular landscapes and amazing whitewater rafting opportunities, make this one of the best expeditions for the whitewater paddler. Adrenaline-pumping river days are followed by relaxed afternoons, to be spent under leafy alders, taking short hikes into the alpine forests and camping out near fields of calf-high mint.
