Whitewater Rafting Along the Brahmaputra & Siang Rivers
An exciting journey down one of the world’s greatest rivers is a trip only for the true adventurer. The river, after flowing gently eastwards through Tibet, cuts through the Greater Himalayas and the highest unclimbed mountain in the world, Namche Barwa before it enters Arunachal Pradesh, where the expedition begins. We will take you through remote hillsides dotted with tribal settlements, through clearings surrounded by stunning rainforest and through huge, difficult to reach white water areas.
A 7-day self-contained run from Tuting to Pasighat (180 kms approx.) through one of the most inaccessible regions in the world.
Note: Aquaterra Adventures reserves the right to begin the rafting trip at Purang Nallah, 20 minutes by river downstream of Tuting, if guide discretion demands that the Ningguing rapid be excluded from the run. This decision will be made in the best interest of the trip, and everybody’s safety.

Aquaterra expedition trips are designed for energetic and flexible people who have the spirit of adventure and a positive attitude. Previous experience in the outdoors and camping helps, though is not a must. These trips are participatory in nature, and everyone is expected to pitch in, set up and break down their own tent, clean their own dishes and help with loading and unloading the rafts.
Tips & Gratuities
Aquaterra recommendation is a minimum 5-10% of your trip cost for tips to be distributed amongst the team that makes your adventure safe and successful. This includes drivers, guides, cook, kitchen team, porters and horsemen. Of course, this remains a personal choice.
