kitulgala

Kitulgala is located southwest of enchanting Kandy & north of famous mountain “Adam’s Peak“. The location of David Lean’s classic in 1957, Oscar-winning film ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai‘, Kitulgala is the Sri Lanka’s favourite village for White water rafting. To make it easier for you, there is a paved pathway to the exact main location of the film. For the birders, Kitulgala is irresistible too: 38 species of birds are found here. For the shutterbugs the limitless green & green rainforest serves endless landscapes

Kitulgala is a small peaceful village set about halfway of the scenic main road descending gently from the hill country (Central highlands) to wet lowlands. The village is well known for its Kitul Pani (Kitul palm honey) production too. It’s a beautiful setting; the scenery is particularly dramatic hereabouts, with sheer-sided, thick rainforest-covered hills plunging down to the wild waters of River Kelani.
