Today you'll be making a very early start (12am) from Nuwara Eliya and embarking on your toughest adventure so far but trust us, it is worth it!
After descending into the luscious rain forest, passing by majestic lakes and waterfalls we will arrive at the beautiful village of Dalhousie.
There we will start our accent to the top of Sri Pada (2,243m) “the sacred foot” (Adam’s Peak), a pilgrimage site and a place revered as holy by Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Christians alike. Our climb should take 4-6 hours depending on group fitness levels. While traversing the steps we will catch spectacular 360 degrees views of the surrounding countryside.
After descending the mountain, we will travel through the tea terraces into virgin rainforest, passing through remote villages until we reach the riverside village of Kitulgala a spot made famous for being the place where the Academy Award-winning The Bridge on the River Kwai was filmed.
After a well deserved rest on the way from Adam's Peak, we’ll take to the rapids on the mighty Kelani river. Our guides will take on a series of adrenaline-packed white-water rapids, as well as peaceful stretches where you’ll be able to relax and take in the beauty and diversity of the rain forest flora and fauna.
Part way along the rafting route, we will stop on the riverside and go on a short trek through the jungle arriving at the top of a cascading waterfall. Here we begin our canyoning experience, where you will face a series of confidence jumps and water slides down the waterfall.
You will then continue your rafting tour downstream and finish with some fun and games before retiring to our riverside camp to enjoy the sunset on the river.
