Canyoning

A tributary of the Kelani River

Canyoning

per person

Borderlands has been the pioneering canyoning company in both Nepal and Sri Lanka these past 20 years. Our Sri Lankan guide’s are certified under the UK canyoning certification and have the right equipment and expertise to safety explore these liquid gems. Our canyons can be explored as a simple family hike and swim experience or getting fully kited up and partaking in some true adventure. Traveling the narrow side-canyons of the Kelani River is like stepping into a liquid-rock water park.

The trip begins with a short jungle hike up to the canyons through rainforest. From here, we’ll cover a few ground rules in a safety briefing and then hop right in — literally. As we make our way down the canyons, we’ll have to jump into plunge pools and wade across small “potholes,” the best and only way to experience the stony canyons features carved by rushing water over many thousands of years! There are even a few “waterslides” along the way! During this adventure you’ll face several thrilling challenges. This is fun, fun, fun and is consistently one of our most popular adventure activities in Kithulgala.

The canyon is a great introduction to canyoning. Its safe but challenging and is fun for the whole family. Borderlands frequently pairs rafting on the Kelani river with canyoning, making for a half day packed with adventure!

Our combined rafting and canyoning trips begin on the Upper Kelani, rafting down the Class III and Class II rapids, which takes around 45 minutes. After the rapids, we disembark and head up the Kelani river tributary for the canyoning. The trip is finished on the Lower Kelani, with its small rapids suitable to all ages.
