Itinerary idea in detail
Discover the thrill of our Kitulgala White Water Rafting Day Tour, just a short 2-hour drive from Colombo on the Colombo-Nuwara Eliya road. Kitulgala, a captivating rainforest area, beckons both local and international travelers with its natural allure. Notably, the Kelani River near Kitulgala served as the backdrop for the Academy Award-winning movie, The Bridge on the River Kwai. While the film’s remnants have faded, Kitulgala remains a hub for white-water rafting in Sri Lanka, offering a myriad of leisure and adventure activities.
At Green Holiday Travels, 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.
