Rafting in Tons River - Promote By Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board

As part of tourism activity, a national rafting championship will be organized for the first time in Tons river at Mori block in the district, where only three-four rafting companies operate, said tourism officials. The championship will be held in the last week of May.Link
Known for its whitewater rafting, Shivpuri, an idyllic beach, near the holy city of Rishikesh is considered to be the Mecca of adventure sport in the state. The rafting business, which has now grown to Rs 25-35 crores, is providing employment and business opportunities to hundreds of people. Over 100 rafting companies operate along the 70 km long stretch between Devprayag, Shivpuri, Kaudiyala and Muni Ki Reti.

The Ganga between Devprayag and Muni Ki Reti is considered to be an ideal location for adventure sport activity. Thousands of tourists, from home and abroad, gather here except during the monsoon season.

These companies are now targeting corporate houses also. Significantly, 90 per cent of the business comes from India only. Only 10 per cent of the tourists come from abroad. “The government must help us in bringing more foreign tourists rafting,” said Bhatt. But operators are confident that the adventure sport business will grow further in the near future.
