Trekking & Temple Retreat in Sri Lanka


This tour meanders through wonderful natural forests and beautiful paddy fields where you can see my local people busy with their daily work. We will cross a very long, old bridge in the woods and walk down to the river where we will have a picnic and a rest by the river. After lunch, we will trek up to a village located in a pepper plantation. In the evening, you have an opportunity to join a meditation in the temple and have dinner of Sri Lankan rice and curry. We will stay overnight in the village temple.

After breakfast, we will walk through the village and paddy fields on our way back to Bandarawela. The walk will take around 3 hours, and then we will be picked up for a drive of two hours.

I enjoyed it a lot! Deen arranged his colleague guide, a very nice and knowledgeable guy. He knew so much about flowers, plants, and birds. The temple was being renovated so a little less idyllic, but the monk was very friendly and gave us a short introduction to Buddhism and meditation. We also did a short meditation. In the evening we had dinner with a local family in the village, which was delicious! We really enjoyed all the different dishes. We would definitely recommend doing this experience to anyone. Thanks also for your prompt response and arranging this experience I Like Local!

The trek organized by Deen was wonderful! Everything was organized perfectly, he called my hotel the night before to arrange the pickup, and the guide that he provided had excellent English and was probably the best guide I met in Sri Lanka. As we walked I got to learn all about the history of Sri Lanka. We couldn't stay overnight at the temple because there was a ceremony going on - but that was fine as it was still fascinating to see the monks, drumming, etc. My only suggestion would be to provide information before the trek about where the starting/ending points are so that I could have arranged my transport and accommodation a bit more conveniently.
