WHITE WATER RAFTINGIN KITHULGALA
One of the most popular destinations for whitewater rafting in Sri Lanka is the green and picturesque region of Kitulgala. The village gets its name from the vast number of kithul trees in the area, which is a palm tree from whose sap is derived to make the local sweetener, jaggery. Kitulgala is located around 80 kilometres outside Colombo, which can be reached in an hour-and-half by road. Kitulgala was also the filming location for the famous Hollywood movie, Bridge on the River Kwai.
