Experience the excitement of our Kitulgala White Water Rafting Day Tour, a mere 2-hour drive from Colombo along the Colombo-Nuwara Eliya Road. Kitulgala, an enchanting rainforest region, entices adventurers from near and far with its untamed beauty. Renowned as the filming location for the Academy Award-winning movie, The Bridge on the River Kwai, the Kelani River near Kitulgala holds a storied past. While the echoes of the film have faded, Kitulgala remains a hotspot for white-water rafting in Sri Lanka, boasting a plethora of leisure and thrill-seeking activities.

At Adithya Lanka Holidays, we recommend the following activities during your Kitulgala Day Tour:
  • White Water Rafting in the Kelani River
  • Rainforest walks to discover picturesque rivers and waterfalls
  • Mountain biking on roads or through the forest
  • Exploring the prehistoric Belilena caves, home to the 12,000-year-old skeletal remains of the ‘Balangoda man’
  • Waterfall jumps and waterfall abseiling
  • Bird watching
  • River expeditions

While a one or two-night stay is ideal, Kitulgala can be enjoyed in just one day. Nevertheless, spending the night in an eco-lodge near the riverbank offers an amazing experience amid the soothing sounds of nature.

Here’s a typical itinerary for your Kitulgala Day Tour:
  • Pick up from your Colombo hotel and transfer to Kitulgala – Approximately a 3-hour drive.
  • Trek to the natural rock pools and waterfalls of “Kataran-Oya” – 1.5 km, featuring seven stunning natural pools. Enjoy activities like sliding down a 5-meter waterfall and a confidence jump into a beautiful natural rock pool, followed by swimming in the cool and clean waters of the rainforest.
  • Experience white water rafting in the picturesque Kelani River, covering 5 major rapids and 4 minor rapids. This activity is suitable for anyone above the age of 10 years, with safety gear provided, modern rafts, and a comprehensive safety briefing by our white water rafting instructors. The distance covered is approximately 5 KM, providing an enchanting experience in the river’s surroundings.
