This experience consists of light treks paths to discover some hidden gems. But not everything will be visited by foot, use the local transportation to move around, like a bus & tuk-tuk ride. If you are with the locals, be like a local!

On the way, you will visit three famous temples: Lankathilaka temple, a 14th-century temple that was built on a huge rock, the Gadaladeniya temple, which was built in South Indian style and where you can enjoy a great panoramic view from the hilltop. The third temple is called Embekke Devalaya and has impressive carvings and woodwork. All in all, these temples are worth a visit, guaranteed!

Besides the temples, you will also visit home gardens, pass through small countryside paths & paddy fields, meet the locals, discover the countryside wildlife, go to tea plantations & water canals, and more!

You thought it couldn't get better? Taste Sri Lankan traditional snacks and fresh fruits from the countryside and visit the herbal and spices garden!

My name is Dushan, but everyone just calls me Platy. I was born in 1983, married with Sonali. My wife is working for the Government. My daughter Thinuri was born in 2013. I am a practicing Buddhist from Kandy, the world heritage city.

In 2002 I started my hospitality career with a diploma from the Ceylon Hotel School & School of Tourism. I worked for 7 years in the guest service sector in Sri Lanka and abroad in the United Arab Emirates.

I am a tourist-driver for more than 5 years. I have a lot of experience in driving through Sri Lanka and I know all interesting and secret places in my country. It would be my pleasure to be your personal guide to Sri Lanka!"
