Tour In Brief

The tour starts with a one hour drive on the scenic and well carpeted Kandy - Mahiyangana road. This ancient village, established in the 14th century by the king of Kurunegala, has no proper road access which allows it to retain its old charm - Water Buffaloes can still be found trudging in beautiful rice-fields. You will see many ancient irrigation systems and methods being used till this day.

The trek begins with a school visit where guests have the opportunity to give children gifts such as pens and books. The walk will take you to a different part of the village, along rice-fields and vegetable plots. Stop for a session of “fish-therapy” in the river, where you put your feet in the water and let hundreds of fish give you a very peculiar, yet satisfying, foot massage. You will return to the Lodge after an hour’s drive on the same scenic road. The experience will end after having lunch.
