What to Expect

We start our tour at 8.30 am for Morning Departure. Try to come 15 minute before time of start. At the tour operator house, you will be provided with welcome and tour information, bottled water, leech socks, helmets and mountain bike for your size.

After a short briefing you start tour with our experienced English-speaking local guide who takes you on a journey along the main roads through a small local village 18 km away from our office.

You will also experience the local biodiversity in Sri Lanka- working tea plantation, topical palms, ferns and lots of coconut trees. Throughout this journey you will pass through lush green paddy fields, a big part of people's life here in south Sri Lanka. A short journey on the main road and a stop for a refreshing king coconut winds down your tour before you get local village.

We keep our mountain bike at local house and 15 minute walk to the river where you can enjoy a dip in fresh water fed from the Hiyare rainforest. After you have your local lunch from local house we head back 17 km to our office.
