White Water Rafting
Feel the adrenaline surge as you take on the currents in Kitulgala, the best rapids for white water rafting in Sri Lanka. This 1-1.5-hour rafting adventure takes you about 6 KMs along the scenic Kelani River, treating you to breathtaking views of the Kitulgala Rainforest. There’s never a dull moment; challenge your way through several rapids of varying difficulties as you are enveloped by the crystal-clear waters and roaring tides, surrounded by the untouched shores of the Kelani River and the rainforest beyond.
The rapids you will encounter are a combination of grade 2 & 3 rapids. They do not require extensive strength or prior experience to undertake so most people can enjoy safely. Children below 11 years will be restricted from joining until after the high-grade rapids.
There are always some risks to adventure sports and, white water rafting is no different. If you’re up for the challenge, you’ll be hopping on at your own risk. Not to worry, the guides will provide all the required safety equipment and brief you before your journey down the river. Furthermore, a safety kayak will be deployed to monitor the rapids ahead and ensure they are safe to go through.
