What you'll do

On this beautiful hiking tour, I will arrange pickup from your lodgings to starting point. When we reach the starting point. I will give you an introduction and the hike will begin. you will get an excellent Sri Lankan food pack for breakfast and sri lankan snacks to enjoy on the way.

Along the way we will see interesting rock formations and beautiful peat landscape. We will also be able to see stunning views of Nature while exploring Ayurveda (herbal) plants. You will get to know the beauty and historical significance of this Ravana Kingdom.

The walk route is sometimes subject to fog etc so I will still do walk regardless of weather.

On the way back you can taste excellent Sri Lankan food in small but outstanding village type restaurant or Home Cooked Meal, while exploring Tea Estates, Ayurveda (herbal) garden with spices in lovely atmosphere.

Hiking activity between 4-6 hours depending on weather conditions and your needs and abilities.

I really enjoyed this trip. I learned a lot about Sri Lanka - it's nature and traditions. Dammika showed me beautiful places and we had a very good conversation. He offered me different options, so it was a very individual tour. Next time in Kandy I will book a tour with him again.

Dammika took us to a really beautiful place that is otherwise inaccessible or cannot be found easily. Throughout the trip he made sure this trek was right for us - we ended up extending the hike and he picked us up at the end. All in all a great day

The Hike with Dammika was AMAZING! If you want to see the beautiful nature of Sri Lanka beyond the crowded paths this is the first adress to go to. We where lucky with the weather with a lot of sun, clear sky an no rain in the last days so the views where incredible. Also the drive with Dammika from Kandy to the starting point was an experience for itself. A long drive through tee fields and beautiful landscapes. If you want to stop somewhere to take pictures or to buy some delicious fruits on the way, Dammika is always ready to stop. He knows everything about his country and is an absolute Nature-lover. Great guy, keep on your honest work Dammika and thank you for one of the most impressive hikes i‘ve ever done!

I had a pleasure to hike with Dammika and it was a truly unique experience. He really knows everything about the region and provides an experience beyond the typical touristy hike. As a guide, he was friendly, communicative and professional. He was well prepared and flexible. During our tour we've stopped multiple times to take pictures. The views were truly amazing. If you like to travel off the beaten path you should experience hike with Dammika.
