8. Trekking in Sri Lanka (12 nights)


Trekking in Sri Lanka is becoming more and more popular. Many years ago when we started trekking in Sri Lanka some of the most beautiful areas offered little or no accommodation. Things have now changed and good accommodation can be found to suit all budgets. Our first trek is in the Sinharaja Rainforest which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and a World Heritage Site. Our next destination is the Hill Country where we are based in Haputale which is less commercial than other towns in the area. The final treks will be in the Knuckles or ‘Dumbara’ as they call it in Sinhala. Our trekkers will show you the stunningly beautiful landscape and introduce you to the local flora and fauna. The tour can be adapted to your individual needs and requirements. We are flexible and always willing to listen to our customers.
