Water Rafting at Kithulgala
The town of Kitulgala is where this tour will take you for a day filled with extreme adventure. Kitulgala is a small, yet beautiful town located in a wet zone rain forest, approximately two hours away from Colombo. This town is one of the wettest zones in the country not only because it has the Kelani River running through it but also because it experiences two monsoons every year. These monsoons trigger the water flow in the river and make it an ideal location for adventurous sports such as white water rafting. Also, the green surroundings and wet atmosphere make it an ideal location for a bird habitat; hence bird watching is a common activity in Kitulgala. In addition to that, an interesting episode in the history of Kitulagala is the filming of the movie “Bridge on the River Kwai” in 1957. Remains of the concrete foundation of the bridge are still visible today.
When Should I TravelSince Kitulgala is an extreme wet zone, any time of the year is ideal for water sports and cave exploration. Departure from Colombo should be by 7.30 a.m.
To WhomThis tour is ideal for those who love adventurous activities such as white water rafting and exploring jungle cave.

Jungle hiking is a must do and a famous activity among travelers who visit Kithulgala.
Dare to jump! It's fun and exciting; all you need is confidence and the will to do it. Confidence jump takes place at beautiful natural rock pools. Yes, Don’t worry we got you!
