Walking, Hiking and Culture in Sri Lanka

We pick you up at the airport and transfer you to the hotel to relax after your long flight. Depending on your flight arrival time, we could take a short walk through the fish market.

After breakfast we transfer to Anuradhapura. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its well preserved ruins of ancient Sri Lankan civilisation, it is one of the ancient capitals of Sri Lanka and dates back to the 5th century BC. We spend the day walking around the ruins of the ancient city and also check out the oldest living human-planted tree in the world (249BC), the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi which is said to be part of Sri Maha Bodhi under which Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.

Today we transfer to Sigiriya to climb the ancient rock fortress and to walk amongst some of the oldest landscaped gardens in the world. This is UNESCO heritage sight is a must see on a visit to Sri Lanka. We then head to Nalanda to spend the night.

We take a short transfer today to our next destination which is in the heart of the Sri Lankan spice belt. Today we start our walk through a spice garden then heading to Nalanda Gedige, an ancient Hindu Temple. We then continue our walk around the Bowatenna resevoir with a visit to a small fishing village.

Today we climb the nearby Arangala Peak, supposed to be the center point of Sri Lanka. From it’s top we can view the mighty Knuckles range in the distance and two reservoirs on either side.

Today we transfer to the tiny town of Pallegama to begin our hike to Meemure. Our hike takes us through the Knuckes Range and around Lakegal,  the place where King Ravana would take off in his historical aeroplane according to popular legend. Our destination for the night is a small campsite run by a local farmer who knows all the folklore of the surrounding area.

Today we transfer to Kandy for a rest day. In the evening we can visit the sacred Temple of the Tooth and attend a local culture show. Kandy is a city that sleeps, that’s why our food walk start at 6PM. We start at the iconic Royal Bar. Try out the local Arrack and bites to set the tone before heading out for some gluttony. Egg rotis, fresh hoppers and the best Kothu are up for grabs. Our charismatic host will regale you with stories about Kandy while you indulge in the many food options on the walk.

Today we transfer to Nuwara Eliya, the capital of hill country and is considered the most important location for Tea production in Sri Lanka. En route we will visit a tea factory to witness the process and also have a cup of fresh tea. Post lunch we take a leisurely walk through the old colonial town and visit the botanical gardens.

Today we explore the famed Horton Plains. It is a protected area in the central highlands of Sri Lanka and is covered by montane grassland and cloud forest. We will trek to the Worlds End a cliff face with a drop of over 1km! We then continue our journey to Udawalawe National Park.

Udawalwe is famous for its wild elephants (around 400) that live here and during a visit it is not unusual to see a parade of adults and youngsters feeding, bathing and playing in the water. The park is also home to water buffalo, sambar deer, monkeys and you might even be lucky enough to spot a leopard. It’s also a location that boasts numerous species of birds. So with this in mind, we set-off at dawn by 4WD jeep for our open-top safari. With experienced and knowledgeable nature guides with us, you’ll be in expert hands throughout making this an unforgettable experience.
