Yesterday I went to Kithulgala with my collegues and it was one of the coolest experiences in my life. This is the first time I have been to Kithulgala and was hoping to have some serious fun. We were guided by Priyantha of Ceylon Adventure Sports. Priyantha is a good friend of my collegue. Though I have heard of him, yesterday only I met him. First we went jungle tracking. The places within the jungle were really hard to believe. We came across a waterfall where we all bathed. The whole course took us about 3 hours to complete. By the time when we came back we were really hungry so we had a good lunch. Then in the evening came the real fun, White Water Rafting. This is why we all went to Kithulgala. We were geared up with life jackets and helmets. Priyantha instructed how we should row when he commands. Then we started the course. On our course there were 5 rapids we had to cross. We took the challenge and when we hit the thrid one Priyantha intentionally got the boat closer to the rock and flipped it up side down. Gosh we were all in the water trying to gather ourselves. Then we got together and flipped the boat and got inside. We successfully went passed the other rapids. After we passed all the rapids then came the other excercise. Jump out of the boat said Priyantha. I was like and then jumped. We had to swim from there to the camp site. It was a long swim but was bit difficult with the life jackets for me. But can't take it off either. Its not a Swimming Pool. After I got to the camp site Priyantha said its 40Ft deep where he told us to jump . It was a good team building excersie all and all. Had some great fun. Thanks to Priyantha for all the excitement and his crew (couldn't get their names) including our friend Nilantha. A day is not enough for such a trip but had to come back to Colombo.
