For a shot of adrenaline, head to Kithulgala, the centre for white water rafting. Famed for being the movie set of “Bridge of the River Kwai”, Kithulagala gushes with rapids, splashing across rocks and boulders to offer you an adventurous time. It’s not an exaggeration to say that this is the wildest part of the Kelani River. Your guide will require you to listen to a set of instructions before boarding your raft, and strap you into a life – jacket. There are also kayaks and canoes available for smaller groups, which you have to inform us in advance if you need any. You will try activities like sliding and waterfall abseiling, which are sure to quench your thirst for adventure.We recommend you to visit Kithulagala between May and December as it is the ideal time for white water rafting. Although white water rafting may seem that it’s only for experienced adventure seekers, it is even considered safe for children above 10 years. After your adventure in water, you will go on a little trail to spot exotic wildlife and birds.
