Rafting is great fun and it is perfect for beginners as well as rafting experts! the enthusiastic and experience staff will be happy to take u through the rapids of the kelani river. Starting upriver outside of kithulgala you will begin the five kilometre stretch that includes a series of seven rapids with great names such as the virgin's breast, killer falls and head chopper!

We went with our children of 6 and 10 on the smallest trip. Nice guide, for the children quite an adventure. A bit expensive for the time (actual time rafting approx. 20 minutes).

Rent a car and driver. Not sure if that would be cheapest but it surely will be easiest and quickest. We went to kitulgala from Trincomalee, did our rafting and then moved to Dickoya all before 8pm.
