Full description
After being collected from your Colombo hotel at approximately 7:00AM, you will embark on a 3-4 hour journey to your white water rafting location. Once arriving at the Kelani River, your adventure water rafting experience will begin. After being assigned one of the modern rafts, you will receive a comprehensive safety briefing by a professional water rafting instructor. The distance you will cover is approximately 5-kilometers, and the river and its surrounding will make you feel enchanted, providing you with a memorable experience during your adventure water rafting tour in Kitulagala. On completion of the tour, you will be transferred to the Plantation Hotel for your well earned buffet lunch by the river.

Good, but rafting too short

Organization was okay so far, but you drive 3 hours to raft and the time in which you do rafting is not more than 1h, which is too little and a shame. Accordingly, the price is a bit too high and as I said, more rafting would have been nice. The tour is quite lame for adrenaline junkies, but for families and beginners with a little fear I think just right :)
