Set in the jungle, is a beautiful canyon with an amazingly clear stream and plenty of sunlight. Starting at a rock pool, where younger children stay back for swim, we journey down through the river, jumping, sliding and swimming alone the way. Wearing life jackets and helmets for safety, and guided by an expert, we meet several challenging activities that are scary and thrilling at the same time. This trip is one of the most popular adventure activities in Kithulgala.
Canoeing is a paddle sport in which you kneel or sit facing forward in an open or closed-decked canoe, and propel yourself with a single-bladed paddle, under your own power. Kayaking is a comparable activity in a kayak which usually has a closed deck and is propelled with a double bladed paddle. In a kayak the paddler typically sits with legs extended forward.
