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:


  1. White Water Rafting in the Kelani River
  2. Rainforest walks to discover picturesque rivers and waterfalls
  3. Mountain biking on roads or through the forest
  4. Exploring the prehistoric Belilena caves, home to the 12,000-year-old skeletal remains of the ‘Balangoda man’
  5. Waterfall jumps and waterfall abseiling
  6. Bird watching
  7. 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:

  1. Pick up from your Colombo hotel and transfer to Kitulgala – Approximately a 3-hour drive.
