White water rafting in Sri Lanka ….
Consider your safety .... Consider the quality and then the price…. Which ever way we are the number one. !
Sri Lanka’s spring fed boulder rivers flow through wild tropical jungles are the ideal setting for white water rafting. Whether it’s a half day or full day excursion or as an activity of a multi day tour itinerary White Water Rafting is a must do activity for young and not so young alike.
This activity which doesn’t require swimming capabilities at all is ideal for the amateurs who wish to 'take the plunge' and for experts as well.
Our main rafting location Kithulgala had a bout of fame, when it was chosen as a prime location in the filming of , David Lean's 1957 award winning film 'Bridge on the River Kwai.'
The Kelani River ( one of the main river's of Sri Lanka) flows through the Kitulgala's rock strewn sections and the rapids provide ample pleasure for the adventure sport of white water rafting.
The actual run takes about 1 ½ hours to 3 hours[ depends on how much time you want to spend in water ] to complete with encounters of grade 2 and 3 rapids, bearing unique names such as Butter Crunch, Killer Falls, Head Chopper and Virgin's Breast !
