This activity is for anyone above the age of 10 years, participants will be provided with safety gear, modern rafts, and a comprehensive safety briefing will be given by our white water rafting instructors beforehand. The distance covered is around 5 Kms. The actual rafting session could take between 1 ½ hours to 3 hours depending on how much time you want to spend in the water and the rapid grades (2 and 3 rapids) you want to experience. The rapids have some unique names such as Butter Crunch, Killer Falls and Head Chopper. The river and its surrounding will enchant you with a memorable experience during your White Water Rafting Tour in Kitulgala.

These Rapids are of grades 2-3. The area is famous for its prime location in the filming of, David Lean's 1957 award winning film 'Bridge on the River Kwai.'

Kitulgala is located about 80 kilometers from Colombo on the main road that runs to Nuwara Eliya. Kitulgala is a small town in the wet zone rain forests, one of the wettest places in the country and ideal location of white water rafting. The Kelani River flows through Kitulgala's rock strewn sections and the rapids provide ample white water rafting excitement. The river is the fourth longest river in the country.

Kitulgala rafting is suitable for both amateurs as well as professionals. A briefing is given prior to the river run with instructions on paddling techniques and “man over board” procedures. At the end of the trip an optional riverside lunch buffet could be arranged for groups and large parties.
