Thrilling River Adventure in Kitulgala
Go for white water rafting in the River Kelani!  

Kitulgala, located in western Sri Lanka, is considered to be one of the most important holdings of the country’s biodiversity. Recently, Kitulgala has started attracting outdoor enthusiasts to its beautiful setting, used in 1956 for the filming of the Academy Award-winning 'The Bridge on the River Kwai'. Trek along its nature trails and forests ideal for bird watching, or go canyoneering through rocky gorges.

Kitulgala’s climate is humid throughout the year which makes it an ideal destination for white water rafting. The thrilling adventure on the whitewater sections of the Kelani River is enjoyable for both beginners and professionals. Whether you are 11 or 75 years, our professionally trained guides will make sure you have a safe and fun day on the river! Prior to the two-hour river run, you will be given instructions paddling techniques and river rescue procedures. During this wilderness adventure, paddle down pristine water and exciting, class 2 to 3+ rapids. On certain occasions, you may encounter even grade 4 and 4 + rapids.

Those who prefer enjoying the river and its wonderful scenery without the thrills and spills of large rapids, can go rafting on the flatter section down the lower gorge, suitable for children over six years and family groups.

The journey ends close to Kitulgala town where food and snacks are available. For groups, an optional riverside lunch buffet can be arranged.
