The first night will be spent in a traditional house, located in a remote village on the way to the mountains. The next day, after a pleasant hike, you will have the opportunity to sleep in a little house without electricity in the heart of the jungle. A quiet and mind-boggling place!
Meals will be prepared via traditional methods using a wood fire. You will shower in a creek and may even see tracks of wild elephants!
This in an ideal experience for guests wanting to go beyond the standard guidebook offers- go with the flow, live in basic conditions and learn about remote communities, the history and mystical aspects of Sri Lanka.
