Here the emphasis is on simplicity and providing basic comforts rather than frills. You will find nature in abundance! Our staff is from nearby villages; they are trained to make you feel at home and take good care of you. Being in the wilderness, there is no television or newspaper.

When you wish to visit us, do take the trouble to find out where you are headed! Our Camps are set on a hillside in the middle of a Reserved Forest Area, and it is a thorough privilege to be so close to nature. We adhere strictly to eco guidelines of no bright lights, no loud music, meal timings and no campfires during the fire season. We do not have room service. We provide you with a clean tent with beds to sleep in, healthy meals each day and a fun day of activity. If you wish to visit us, come with the purpose of living in the Himalayan valley surrounded by Reserved forests away from city life, for the call of the barking deer, or the midnight roar of the leopard; not for creature comforts that we take for granted, coming from the city. It will help you enjoy your holiday better, and we appreciate guests who realize this opportunity to commune with nature.

WHY GO WITH AQUATERRA ADVENTURES

A question easy to answer, you may wonder, in an age where adventure travel is apparently booming. Varying costs are available and there is no shortage of operators willing to run your trip. This is possibly the most important decision for you to make, after you have chosen to take on an adventure trip.

An Experienced Team

Our team of guides has years of experience of travel throughout the Indian Himalaya, from running rivers to leading treks – from the barren Zanskar to the tropical rainforest of Arunachal Pradesh. They speak English, have completed graduate school, are current with First Aid and CPR certification and form the most experienced guiding team in the country today.

Value for Money

The prices of our trips provide a high value for money returns. They are priced to keep our standards high and your trip, smooth. Cost usually is a deciding factor for many a trip, but for an adventure trip, the deciding factor should be confidence in your operator. We combine high operator confidence with a pricing balanced to give you a trip to remember.

Best Equipment

Equipment on all our adventure travel trips matches worldwide standards. On treks, we use 4 season 2-person tents, which can withstand the harshest weather conditions, and keep you dry and protected from the elements. Outfitter wings accompany all mountain trips for dining under.

Great Food

Our staff is trained in hygienic preparation of meals and offers a great variety of food on an outdoor trip. Good equipment, food and guides is what makes an outdoor trip an experience to savour.
