Day by Day Itinerary

Meet & Assist on arrival, Transfer from Airport to Colombo.

Enjoy a city tour of Colombo which is the largest city and former administrative capital of Sri Lanka and is a busy and vibrant city with a mixture of modern life and remnants of a bygone colonial era. Due to its large harbor and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. However it was only made the Capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815. The main city is home to a majority of the Sri Lanka’s corporate offices, restaurants and entertainment venues. On this tour you will visit many of the historical, religious and commercial sites of Colombo including the historic and bustling Fort and Pettah, the elite residential Cinnamon Gardens, the Galle face Green, Viharamahadevi Park and much more.

The rainforest landscape offers many opportunities for the visitors to explore and experience and trekking through the secondary rainforest and trekking up small hills to grasslands. There are flexible soft trekking tours of two to three hours depending on your capabilities and is suitable for most ages and it is not so steep or hilly. Exploring waterfalls can be quite challenging if you are not up to it. During this trail there is plenty of opportunity to photographs and study the forest especially native endemic medicinal plants and wild varieties of common spices. The unique pitcher plant can also be seen along with wild orchids and flowers in season. As you trek you will feel watched by the Purple face leaf monkey that is a unique feature of the rainforest.

Bird & Butterfly Trail
An early morning 6.15am start and a 2 1/2km gentle walk down the incline brings you to the Samangala Temple which is the start of observing the unique phenomena of the Bird wave or Bird Flock. This is made up of usually of different species that join each other and move together while foraging. A mixed-species foraging flock typically has “nuclear” species that appear to be central to its formation and movement. Species that trail them are termed “attendants”. Attendants tend to join the foraging flock only when the flock enters their territory. Invariable led by the fearless Greater Racket-tailed Drongo and the noisy Orange-billed babbler. Of the 26 endemic species of Sri lanka the 19 rainforest species all occur here including the elusive Red-faced Malkoha, green-billed Coucal and the Sri Lanka Blue Magpie. A typical mixed feeding flock moves through the or low foliage forest at about 0.3 kilometers per hour (0.19 miles per hour), with different species foraging in their preferred niches (on the ground, on trunks, in high, etc.). Return for our famous hearty breakfast.

Tea & Community Trail

Experience the essence of tea with our tea & community trail that could be done at a leisurely pace as it is walking on flat ground and suitable for all ages.
