Kithulgala (white water rafting)

The town is situated on a particularly delightful stretch of the Kelani River that incorporates
rock-strewn sections and rapids, often enclosed by high banks of tall bamboo, conditions ideal for the sport of white-water rafting. As a result Kitulgala has become the capital of white-water rafting in Sri Lanka.The Kitulgala run is 6.5 km in length and takes about 90 minutes to complete.
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. Kitulgala in the hill country, southwest of Kandy provides an ideal base from which many white water rafting tours take place.
