KITHULGALA

KITHULGALA

Kithulgala lies on the banks of the Kelani River and is located 100km from Colombo. Kithulgala-better is known as the adventure playground of Sri Lanka, Kitulgala attracts the greatest number of adventure enthusiasts on the island. The remote adventure holiday spot with rocky outcrop provides all ingredients for many adrenaline-pumping activities such as white water rafting adventures, Canoeing, mountain climbing, waterfalls abseiling and many other activities. Kitulgala is one of the best places for a one-day adventure trip in Sri Lanka. There are many other attractions in Kithulgala that should not be missed. Chief among these are the historic Beli Lena Caves, that are reached by a 10km drive off the main road through the Kithulgala tea estate and archaeological evidence indicates that the pre-historic Balangoda Man lived here 20000 years ago. David Lean’s epic war film “Bridge on the River Kwai” was filmed on the Kelani River in Kithulgala and remnants of the concrete structure of the bridge still remain. The Kelani Valley Forest Reserve on the far bank is a low elevation forest where rare and endemic birds can be spotted, including the Serendib Scops Owl (Otus thilo Hoffmani). The Forest Reserve also has a host of other rare amphibians, reptiles, frogs, endemic tree snails and endemic fishes in its stream. Fresh water fishing offers great sport here as the Kelani River has the largest game fish found in Sri Lanka, the Mahseer (Barbus Tor), and also the Freshwater Shark (Wallagonia attu) and Loola. can be conveniently reached from most popular beach holiday destinations on the western and southern coast of Sri Lanka. Kitulgala is also very close to Kandy and Nuwara Eliya making it easy to reach Kitulgala from any of the aforementioned places.

White Water Rafting In Sri Lanka

If you're looking for an action-packed adventure on the water, why not go for a white water experience in the numerous rapids found in Sri Lanka.

This activity is great fun for first-timers and experts alike, with a wide range and grading of rapids on some of Sri Lanka’s more turbulent waters such as the Kelani River.

Kithulgala in the hill country, southwest of Kandy provides an ideal base from which many white water rafting tours take place. Tours can be arranged for anything from 1 hour to a half-day including lunch.
