Day 01: Reach Dehradun Jolly Grant Airport by 12:30pm. Meet the group and drive to Mori in the Tons Valley (6 hours). With breaks for meals, we arrive at the campsite well before it gets dark. Set up camp for the night by the Tons River.
Days 02 and 03: Mori Camp (river) to Khunigad. Wake up to the gurgling sound of the river, enticing you to begin your river expedition. After a thorough safety briefing, as well as basic paddling instructions, we begin rafting at Mori. Back to the camp by afternoon, you can choose to go for a short hike into the pine forest or explore the ancient Mahasu Devta Temple at Hanol. Or you might want to relax on the beach and watch the sunset. Dinner around the campfire is a great place to share experiences of the adventures of the day.
Days 04 and 05: Khunigad to Paradise Camp or Tuni (based on river flow). Start the 60 km river run on the middle Tons. Here we encounter grade 4 rapids and a lot of smaller ones, which are sure to get your adrenaline pumping. In the late afternoon we pitch camp, where you can trek into the beautiful alpines pastures or the pine forests. Dinner is buzzing with excitement over the next day of rafting and your river guide will have plenty of stories to share. Set up camp for the night by the river.
Day 06: Below Tuni Camp to Attal Camp. From Tuni, the river starts to pick up volume as the River Pabbar joins it, providing more volume and terrific white water. After the thrill of the top and middle section of the river expedition we now move into a beautiful gorge. Paddle through some of the country’s best white-water during the day and set up camp in the late afternoon to explore the surrounding area.
Day 07: Attal Camp to Minus to Dehradun. The last day on the river expedition, we will paddle down the river through a tropical canyon. At Minus we finish our trip and are met by our vehicles to drive us to Dehradun Jolly Grant Airport.
