Best Adventure Tours in Srilanka

Sri Lanka was formerly known as Ceylon and is a tropical island. Its sandy beaches and lush green forests are breathtaking and intriguing. Sri Lanka as a country is known for many reasons, from culture to heritage sites, from adventure to wildlife there are many things that endow this beautiful country. It is a neighbouring country to India and has a mythological significance as well. The population is awesomely Buddhist, and the ancient traditions are still practiced in the temples and the holy sites scattered across the island. "Lanka" is blessed to have many World Heritage sites, it is surrounded by a lot of Portuguese fortifications and has its influence too. From the quaint hill town of Kandy to the Portuguese ramparts of Galle and monastery-strewn ruins of Anuradhapura - it has everything that holds a tourist's attention.


We agree that Sri Lanka is not a country that we might think of adventure on the first go, but it has ample options for adventure and water sports. One can plan a full packed adventure holiday when in Sri Lanka. However, do not think it does not have any, this thought shall not dissuade you, as you will find a plenty of thrilling experiences for adrenaline junkies on this beautiful island. What could be more exciting than surrendering to the power of an almighty river and going along with its flow? The small town of Kitulgala, to the south of Kandy town, is the perfect gateway to the rapids of the Kelaniya Ganga. This place is certainly for the adrenaline junkies who can ride the waves of this fierce river. Take up Whitewater rafting and go surfing on the white beaches. Try out some jerky rides on the stretch of the beaches and glides through the waves.
