Canoe trip along Kalu Gaga Half DayPart 1: Ratnapura - Kurugammodara


DURATION:  2 hrs (depending on the water level)


Your journey will start from Saman Dewalaya in Ratnapura, the City of Gems, with an easy 15 km section through calm waters in a low valley. This section doesn’t require any special canoeing skills. When leaving the Ratnapura town area behind, you will enter quite and peaceful sceneries with a few little houses surrounded by thick vegetation and palm trees! Here, the only noises you will here are the calls of the birds and the sound of paddling.

At the end of this section, in Kurummagodara, a typical Sri Lankan lunch is awaiting your arrival.


Part 2: Kurugammodara - Ellagawa


DURATION:  3 hrs (depending on the water level)

GRADING: Moderate

From here the adventure starts building up as the river bends make the water flow stronger. Your canoe will get a bit unsteady too, and therefore some previous canoeing experience is required in this section of the river.

Your real challenge will be the very last kilometer when arriving in Ellagawa. Here, the river flows very fast, and the strong rapid and swirls will test your canoeing skills and concentration.
