You will be picked up from your hotel at 7:00 am and headed towards Kitulgala. Kitulgala is an area covered in a rainforest. The Kelani river runs through the forest forming several continuous rapids. There are 5 major rapids and 4 minor rapids spread over an area of over 5 km, giving the turbulent white waters. In addition to whitewater rafting, Kitulgala is also a natural centre for many other adventure sports, including abseiling, canyoning, white water and flat water kayaking and many more.
