After the Breakfast Nuwara Eliya to Rathnapura via Kithulgala
Kitulgala White Water Rafting
In the wet zone forest area you'll find one of Sri Lanka's finest locations, splendid and rich with nature's gifts. The town is called Kitulgala, where wildlife lives, plants grow, fishes and water creatures strut about with no inhibitions at all.
Sri Lanka preserves natural beauty by protecting it, the people do not let any harm come to the nature of animals and plants.
Kitulgala goes through two monsoons each year and is titled the wettest place in the whole country.
Kitulgala is famous for the exotic birds that roam the sky above it, the mouth-watering rice-curry lunch that's served and the Kelani River.
Then proceed to Rathnapura
Ratnapura District is most famous for its gems, one of our island’s first exports, like tea, tusks and spices. Certainly most of the people of this district have connections with the gem trade, in its many facets, either mining, cutting, polishing and making Jewellery. At the centre of this, quite the most beautiful of industries, is Ratnapura (City of Gems). Here you will find stones of excellent quality, luster and variety..... sapphires, rubies, amethysts, topaz, garnets, tourmaline, cat’s eyes, star rubies and sapphires and the mysterious moonstones (feldspar), to name a few. Craftsmanship of high quality, all cutting and polishing is being done the traditional way by hand.
