ChallengingWhat is this means?
All year round
Experience White Water Kayaking at Kitulgala. Your next big adventure is waiting for you.
Reading and hearing about things are not the same as experiencing them firsthand. We invite you to join us in Kitulgala for a day to remember. White water kayaking down the Kelani river is an experience that should not be missed while you are in Sri Lanka, whether resident or visiting.
For the experienced kayaker, the Lower Kelani offers seven Class II and III rapids, each with its own distinct technical challenge. The stretch is approximately 6 1/2 kilometers, and this run will keep your attention on the next horizon line while also giving ample time to surf a few waves.
Ideal times are from May to December, although there are no “bad” times. The river is dam controlled, therefore water levels can be low in April, but can also be quite high during the monsoon season.
If you’re looking for the best, come talk to us. We have the highest standard modern boating and safety equipment to ensure your safety. Our guides and instructors are very experienced and will give you detailed instructions to follow to ensure that you will have a positive experience.
We offer more opportunities for adventure here in Kitulgala. While you prepare for your kayaking adventure, consider also joining us for White Water Rafting, Waterfall Abseiling, Jungle trekking and Canyoning, which can all be enjoyed within the same day.
