White Water Rafting

The clear waters and rapids of Kithulgala’s Kelani River are perfect for some adrenaline packed white water rafting or kayaking. The river has both grade 2 and grade 3 rapids and the 6.5km stretch of the river upstream from Kithulgala is suitable for enthusiastic beginners and veteran rafters alike and should take around an hour to complete, depending on the water levels and time of year. White water rafting at Kithulgala is best between May and December but can be done all year round. The challenging rapids are interspersed with more gentle stretches of the river which allow you a chance to soak in the marvellous hill country scenery.

The experienced team from the Borderlands Adventure Camp will provide the guide, boat and equipment and will give you a thorough safety briefing before you set off. This experience can be arranged for those staying at the camp or if you are just passing through Kithulgala between Kandy and the other attractions of the hill country such as Adams Peak, Hatton, Nuwara Eliya and Ella.
