The town of Kitulgala is where this tour will take you for a day filled with extreme adventure. Kitulgala is a small, yet beautiful town located in a wet zone rain forest, approximately two hours away from Colombo. This town is one of the wettest zones in the country not only because it has the Kelani River running through it but also because it experiences two monsoons every year. These monsoons trigger the water flow in the river and make it an ideal location for adventurous sports such as white water rafting. Also, the green surroundings and wet atmosphere make it an ideal location for a bird habitat; hence bird watching is a common activity in Kitulgala. In addition to that, an interesting episode in the history of Kitulagala is the filming of the movie “Bridge on the River Kwai” in 1957. Remains of the concrete foundation of the bridge are still visible today.
