Canoeing, Camping, Hiking & Cycling

Your adventure begins with a train ride. But not just any train ride. The epic journey from Colombo to the little hill country hamlet of Ella boasts as being one of the most scenic rails in the world. Feast your eyes on cascading waterfalls amidst rolling green hills, clothed with delicately manicured tea estates. You will spend the night at Ella.

The next day you will hike across the fantastic 9 Arches railway bridge, and hike to mini Adam’s Peak – an easy hike that will grant you a breathtaking view. Following this, you will hike to the lovely Rawana Ella falls – one of the widest falls in the country.

The next day you will leave for Anguruwatota, through the beautiful Haputale pass. Once you arrive at the campsite, you will be briefed before canoeing down the Kalu Ganga (Black River). En route you will see differing terrains. You will pass the town of Ratnapura, and come across a more serene surrounding with lush greenery on the banks. The expedition will end at the campsite where you will have a Sri Lankan-style BBQ, and local entertainment will be provided!

The next day you will be free to bike around in the area, before heading back to Negombo where your adventure comes to an end.
