  • Visit the unique frescoes near Sigirya
  • Duration: 6 days

During the following days you will experience local life in rural Sri Lanka and the beautiful environment of Sigirya with its unique frescoes, friendly people and stunning nature.

You will stay at an eco-lodge or at a local family’s house. You can join in the daily activities of the villagers, like teaching English to the children, playing and chatting with them and telling them about your culture. They can show you unique places like the ancient Lions Rock, Dambulla temple and many other temples in the neighborhood. At night you can participate in preparing rich and authentic Sri Lankan food. This usually consists of a ‘main curry’ of fish, chicken, pork or mutton (typically goat), as well as several other curries made with vegetables, lentils and even fruit. As a side dish, we often prepare pickles, chutneys or sambols. The locals will love to show you how to prepare these dishes.

Meet Palitha

Member since: April 2014

Hi, I am Palitha. I was born and raised in Sri Lanka and wish to show you the other ‘eternity in Asia.’ I spent my childhood in various rural areas in Sri Lanka with parents who devoted their life to educate innocent people living with minimum facilities. It was the foundation of my decision to help people in developing communities to improve their lives, whilst learning more about their wishes, attitudes, traditions and customs. Ultimately, my dream came true with my own company; I am now in a position to share it with others who travel from various destinations from around the world to feel and smell the natural and typical life of the Sri Lankan people. We are ready to show you Sri Lanka’s wildlife, nature, heritage, history and culture. It will amaze you!
