Adventures in Kitulgala beyond White Water rafting

A mere 2 hour drive from Colombo-Nuwara Eliya road, Kitulgala is a Rain Forest patch which attracts many resident and foreign tourists for its natural beauty. The Academy Award-winning movie The Bridge on the River Kwai was filmed on the Kelani River near Kitulgala, although nothing remains now except the concrete foundations for the bridge  Kitulgala is the base for white-water rafting in Sri Lanka but there are myriad of leisure and adventure activities that can be done in Kutulgala.

At Sri Lankan Expeditions, suggests following things to do if you are planning a trip to Kitulgala,

  • White Water Rafting in Kelani River
  • Flat Water Rafting for Kids in river branches in Kitulgala
  • Jungle walks to see beautiful rivers and waterfalls
  • Mountain biking on the roads or in the forest
  • River bathing in the shallow branches of the main river in Kitulgala
  • Visit pre historic Belilena caves in which the 12,000 year old skeletal remains of the prehistoric 'Balangoda man' (Homesepiens Balangodensis) have been found
  • Visit to remote Waterfalls and streams
