Adventure Tourist Activities in Sri Lanka

For a girls trip to Srilanka, Kitulgala river is the spot that is undoubtedly the best place to try all the crazy stuff you can ever think of. Which is why we planned a day at Kitulgala; a small town by the river, approximately 1hr North from Dickoya- Hatton (a town near Adam’s peak).

Apart from a thousand exciting tourist activities Sri Lanka has to offer, this one was surely unique and awesome in its own way. Since I’m not one of those hiking or swimming enthusiasts, I was looking for an option that would be some sort of fun activity to cool off in the scorching Srilankan heat. Luckily we found this group White Water Rafting Team 39 online, the only ones who responded to our email inquiry about the safety and other important details.

Rafting Team 39 Review Score – 10/10!

Mr. Ravi, the owner of Rafting Team 39 was very cooperative and gave us a quick orientation for the two activities we selected; White Water Rafting and Zip-lining. The swimmers and rafting experts that accompanied us were experts with their skills, very modest and ensured safety throughout.

Their sports gear; life jackets, ores, boats, helmets and everything was clean and seemed new, as compared to the ones we saw on the way.

The best part is that their center is newly designed, super clean and fully equipped for tourists. They have super clean and new restrooms, changing rooms, lockers, open and enclosed shower areas; basically everything a tourist may need on this trip. As a Muslim female traveler, dirty places bother me the most, which is why I rate Rafting Team 39 a 10/10 for all the facilities they are providing at quietly reasonable rates.

We also got a video shot of the whole exciting little adventure from GoPro Hero 5 for an extra $20, which had a surprisingly excellent result for a keepsake.
