Boasting about adventure sporting, Kitulagala is a town located in West of the road from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. It’s a town located in amid tickly forest hills. The Kitulagala’s main attraction is White water rafting where you can ride the tides of Kelani River. It’s a challenging recreational activity and an exhilarating water sport. Yet contrary to the public brief, White water rafting is not a water sport that demands great physical strength.
An average level of physical fitness and a strong spirit would do. White water rafting is generally enjoyed in the white-waters as well as in other turbulent waters and brings about an enthralling experience to the water sport enthusiasts. Period between May to December is the best time to enjoy White water rafting. The river turns out to be highly volatile during the rainy season and white water rafting becomes very unsafe.
