Hill Country Heights Trek 11/02/2020
Hill Country Heights.
One excellent aspect of our trip was that we spent several days completely away from the tourist route. We met Sri Lankans going about their daily lives and all were welcoming and friendly. On most other days we encountered few tourists. The trek took us through countryside, tea plantations and villages we would never have been able to see on our own. Views were excellent and we saw many birds including several Sri Lankan endemics. We particularly enjoyed staying in the colonial hotel at Bandarawela and the colonial tea estate bungalow in Dickoya. At mealtimes we always chose the Sri Lankan dishes and they were invariably excellent.

This trip exceeded our expectations - brilliant.
The whole experience was the type of trip we were looking for to gain an insight into rural Sri Lanka away from the tourist areas with a particular emphasis on pristine scenery, fauna and flora and the opportunity to meet local and varied villagers. The accommodation was interesting and exciting, we always selected the local food and were never disappointed by random service stations for lunch to top of the range hotels. Every Sri Lankan we encountered couldn't have been more welcoming. A particular mention should go to Hafeel our young trekking guide whose friendly nature has rewarded him with a wealth of contacts along the way. He was able to give us an insight into the homes of Tamil tea pickers, paddy field workers..... over many cups of tea. His experienced eyes spotted so many birds and other animals and countless interesting plants.

Thank you very much!
Our feeling is that the ethos of your business is remarkably genuine, and you have attracted like-minded people to help you. Thank you very much! A unique holiday and better than anyone else could offer in Sri Lanka!

Beautiful and welcoming country
Sri Lanka is such a beautiful and welcoming country, it has such a variety of places to visit from cool tea plantations, stunning beaches, fascinating temples, mountains, a plethora of wildlife and some excellent hotels. And did I mention the food? It is almost worth going there for that alone! Having just returned from the country I cannot recommend it highly enough.
