Kithulgala White Water Rafting Adventure Day Tour

Located just a three-hour drive from Colombo along the picturesque Nuwara Eliya road, Kitulgala is a verdant rainforest patch renowned for its natural beauty. The area attracts a large number of local and foreign tourists, drawn by its stunning scenery and diverse range of activities.

Kitulgala is perhaps best known as the filming location for the Academy Award-winning movie "The Bridge on the River Kwai." Although little remains of the iconic bridge, visitors can still see its concrete foundations along the Kelani River. Kitulgala is also a hub for white-water rafting in Sri Lanka, but there are many other leisure and adventure activities available to visitors.
