Trekking is an excellent way to not only to explore Sri Lanka but also to gain genuine insight into her people, their traditions and the culture. Trek through rice paddies, rugged terrain, wetlands, cloud forests and mountain peaks. Explore the lesser known archaeological sites. Learn the local way of life and enjoy warm native people along the way.
The hill country offers some of the best terrain and scenery as the trails wind through dense forests, up steep mountains, past flowing waterfalls, between fields of tea and through clear rivers that offer a cooling dip.
In addition, the paths within the Cultural Triangle offer hikers a chance to abandon the beaten track and discover little-known temples, uninhabited jungle and archaeological remains.
