White water rafting

Sri Lanka offers wonderful opportunities for white water rafting in one of its major rivers, the Kelani river. This river is fed through clear springs and numerous streams flowing gracefully into it as it winds its way through the mountainous region right down to the capital Colombo where it flows into the sea by the side of the harbour. Along its route the river winds through sections that are scattered with rocks and boulders and passes through tropical jungles and rubber estates. The section of the river in Kitulgala with its multiple rapids provides an ideal stretch for white water rafting. The experience is one of adventure and thrill. This sport does not require swimming skills and both amateurs and professionals participate in this activity and enjoy passing through these rapids. The rafting tours can be short or long as desired by those participating. Along the tour, rafters pass the location at which the award winning film “The Bridge on the River Kwai” was filmed. Families, office staff, trainees, all alike make it a point to participate in this adventurous sport not only for enjoyment but also for building self confidence and grit
