Day 01

 

WHITE WATER RAFTING


      
 

“An interesting affair between currents & rapids”…………


This thrilling adventure on the white water sections of the Kelani River is suitable for amateurs as well as professionals alike. During the river run you will experience the thrill of shooting rapids and the euphoria of making it through. The river’s clear water is born in the heart of the peak wilderness reserve and tumbles through a rocky gorge just above Kithulgala.

As the river widens, we pass the scenic location used for the film - “Bridge over the river Kwai” filmed in 1956-, which is also a great place to jump in for a refreshing swim. On a clear day, you could even dive in to see the remains of the actual bridge and carriages used for the film (only for experienced divers with proper equipment.). Our journey, ends close to Kitulgala town where food and snacks are available.

For those who would like to enjoy the river and its wonderful scenery without the thrills and spills of large rapids, we could raft through the flatter section of the lower gorge, suitable for children over six and family groups.

Rafting in the white water sections of the river and through the boulders and rocks create grade 3/4 rapids, which are exhilarating and scenic. On certain occasions, you may encounter even grade 5 rapids……  A briefing is given prior to the river run with instructions on paddling techniques and “man over board” procedures. At the end of the trip an optional riverside lunch buffet could be arranged for groups and large parties.



CYCLING TO BELILENA CAVE

 

 This cave is located up a steep path on a hillside close to the town of Kithulgala, where from a closeby ledge, you may look down over a breathtaking vista of rubber plantation, jungle vegetation and hills. Located 2000 feet above sea level, skeletal remains were found in the cave of a lost generation of Sri Lankans dating back to 12,000 years ago. ‘Balangoda Man’ was given the scientific name of ‘Homosapiens Balangodensis’. Fossils believed to be approximately 32,000 years old have been found in recent archaeological excavations.

 Belilena Cave’s damp and dark depths are famed for the thousands of bats which have taken up residence in the cave’s cool interior, and they flit about seemingly haphazardly, in the discomforting beam of your torchlight. Colorful butterflies can be seen dancing around the entrance to the cave.
