Life in Digana is peaceful.

Whether it is incense making, going fishing with a local fisherman, learning how to cook typical Sri Lankan dishes, help at the farm or install a water tank for a local family, we can guarantee you will have a real, local experience you will not forget. The accommodation is on a full board basis and all village activities are included.

The buildings of the farm have been made by village craftsmen and designed to reflect typical village homes as far as possible. Modern toilets and showers have been included for your comfort.

Meet Ayesha & Nalin

Member since: April 2014

Hello, we are Ayesha and Nalin. A few years back we returned to our home country, Sri Lanka, with the aim to develop the community of this Dolomite mining village. We started a small domestic farm with mixed livestock and vegetables and a fruit garden, run a community project that has the goal to obtain plastic water storage tanks for the village families and we recently also started to provide accommodation to be able to develop the community further. For us, it’s about bringing Digana to the forefront and really allowing it to develop.
