Kitulgala White Water Rafting takes about a 90 minute run each for 6.5 km with five rapids graded 2 and 3. The Rapids with their own distinctive characters are aptly named: Head Chopper, Virgin’s Breast, Butter Crunch, Killer Fall and the Rib Cage. Riding modern rafts equipped with safety gear, White Water Rafting at Kitulgala would suit even the kids over 10 years in age.

The best time to enjoy White Water Rafting at Kitulgala is the period between May to December. During periods of heavy rain, the river could turn out to be angry and White Water Rafting is definitely not safe.  However water levels could drop surprisingly fast, turning the river to its regular state during the rainy season as well.

Kitulgala white water rafting is not recommended for children under six years of age.
