Private White Water Rafting Day Tour
Kitulgala is a small town in the west of Sri Lanka. It is in the wet zone rain forest, which gets two monsoons each year, and is one of the wettest places in the country. Nevertheless, it comes alive in the first three months of the year, especially in February, the driest month. The Academy Award-winning The Bridge on the River Kwai was filmed on the Kelani River near Kitulgala, although nothing remains now except the concrete foundations for the bridge.
Kitulgala is also a base for white-water rafting, which starts a few kilo meters upstream. Large numbers of people make the excursion at weekends to enjoy the beautiful scenery, play in the river, and have an excellent rice and curry lunch at the local restaurants.
Get out of the city and go on an adrenaline-filled white water rafting adventure on this trip from Colombo. Take 2 hours drive to Kitulgala from Colombo-NuwaraEliya road. After a safety briefing from the instructors, hop in your white water raft head out on the water. Enjoy a Sri Lankan rice and curry lunch at Kithulgala (at your own cost). In the evening transfer to the hotel in Colombo.
