Trekking and Hiking Tours in Sri Lanka
For the keen trekker, there is a myriad of opportunities in Sri Lanka's diverse and scenic hill country. The beautiful area of Haputale, Bandarawela and Ella, located in the hill country of Sri Lanka , provides a superb base from which to try out a wide variety of trekking tours through rain forest patches, across paddy fields, rail roads & tunnels, tea estates, mountain, valleys, grassy plains, waterfalls such as Bambabrakanda Falls and Lanka Fall.
The river and numerous waterfalls in Sri Lanka are another key attraction that allows hikers and trekkers to enjoy a refreshing dip en-route! In the same area the mysterious Horton Plains National Park offers some excellent hikes in an unusual environment, characterised by forest patches, grasslands and some high-altitude vegetation. Highlights include the dramatic 880 metre drop at World's End and the beautiful Baker's Falls.
If you're in the Kandy vicinity, don't miss out on exploring the beautiful Knuckles Mountain range. The region stretches an impressive 155 sq km, with five major forest formations, a wide variety of rare and endemic flora and fauna and some breathtaking mountain scenery. Knuckles mountain range is a real paradise for trekkers, offering numerous trekking tours that journey across clear rivers, through dense forests, fast flowing waterfalls and tea plantations, and alongside terraced paddy fields and colourful Kandyan home gardens.
Further interior of Knuckles mountains range is Dambana, home to Sri Lanka’s indigenous tribal people, Veddas. We offer trekking tours with Veddas in the jungle and learn their way of living.
When ascending the most venerated Adam’s Peak Wilderness Sanctuary (SRI PADA) , its best to begin your ascent at mid night in order to arrive at the summit in time for a magical sunrise when the mystical shadow of the peak is perfectly cast across the clouds. It is one of those truly unique moments that will live on in your memory long after the aches and pains from the hiking have gone!
Then comes the great Sinhraja Rain Forest, a trekking tour in Sri Lanka would not be complete without a visit to the fascinating Sinharaja Rain Forest where a variety of Rain Forest Trekking tours are readily available with us prepared by our trekking guides. We can also tailor Rain Forest Trekking Trips in Sinharaja Rain Forest to meet the specific interests/fitness levels of the trekker.
Bentota, the most popular beach destination of Sri Lanka in the southern province offers not only beach getaways but rural and authentic country walks and trekking tours in the interiors of the town.
