Kitulgala is a small town in the wet zone rainforest areas of Sri Lanka. Although it is located in one of the wettest places in the country, it is famed for its stunning beauty, adventure sports and outdoor camping. The Academy Award-winning The Bridge on the River Kwai was filmed on the Kelani River near Kitulgala, although nothing remains now except the concrete foundations for the bridge (and, supposedly, the submerged train cars that plunged into the river in the climactic scene).
We travelled for the first time to Sri Lanka this January on an itinerary organised through Foozoo . We had an amazing experience! The country is fantastic but the trip was perfect because the guys at Foozoo just went out of their way to tailor it to exactly what we wanted to do. The guide, Irosh, was one of the best we ever had and we ended the trip not only with a deep insight of this fabulous country but also with a great friend. Dinesh and his team were always available to change or add anything to the itinerary as we went along (we extended our trip for 6 nights!). We work in the travel industry and know that this type of operation is not easy, but they made it look effortless. We are raving about the trip and the country to all our friends and contacts, but I know that what made the trip was their expert knowledge. Thank you, Foozoo! Gihin enaam!
