Kitulgala is a wet zone rainforest. It is in the Sabaragamuwa Province. Kitulgala is found on the Colombo-Hatton road. The Kelani River flows through Kitulgala. You can do water rafting in the Kelani River in Kitulgala.

How to arrive Kitulgala

Come to Avissawella from Colombo and board a Kitulgala bus from Avissawella. Get off the trail until you reach the ferry. There’s only one boat on the ferry. The boat can cross the river to the other side.

Crossing the river, you enter a village. When we enter the forest through the village, there is an office at the Forest Department. Get a ticket before entering the jungle. There’s a washroom right there.

If you follow in the footsteps, you can get away. The nameplates have been installed all over the place.

There are many places to walk in the jungle. If you come in the morning, you can go everywhere. There are leeches in the jungle.

  • a waterfall in kitulgala
  • water stream in kitulgala in rainy season

Take breakfast and lunch from Avissawella. There’s a shop near the port. You can get biscuits and drinks from there.

There are plenty of bathing areas. You can bath in the Makulu Ella. Otherwise a bath is reserved separately. You can bath there too. On rainy days, the water can rise suddenly. So take care to bathe.

Do not carry polythene or plastic. Don’t take them with you. Do not contaminate streams. Save those resources for someone else to see.


  1. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my
    comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over
    again. Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!

  2. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve offered on your post.
    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the
    posts are too quick for starters. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

  3. My spouse and I stumbled over here coming from a different website and thought I should check things out.
    I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look forward
    to finding out about your web page yet again.

  4. It’s actually very difficult in this busy life to
    listen news on TV, so I just use the web for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date information.

  5. Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that truly understands
    what they are discussing online. You certainly understand
    how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people
    must look at this and understand this side of
    the story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you surely have the gift.
