Incredible Local Adventure: Hike the Bible Rock in a Day

Spent a full day with Krish and her husband. A lovely day that started off with a hike up Bible rock. A nice lady served us home made bread and tea after the two hour hike. Krish made sure we were not starving during the day. :) She had a fruit basket with local delicates in the car and we stopped at coconut, nut and fruit stands along the way. It felt like a eating tour and we loved it. :) Krish and husband took us for a dip in the river aswell and some authentic breakfast and lunch places. I really enjoyed their company and I totally recommend the tour (that you can personalized as you feel fit). I love the fact that they are so eco friendly and works with sustainability on top of their minds.

Best Cooking Lesson in Sri Lanka

This is an in-depth cooking class, not your typical 2 ingredient simple tourist cooking class. You prepare a multi-course meal, eyeballing portions and tasting along the way.

You are invited into Duneeshya's home kitchen for a hands on experience and adorable conversation.

Best Cooking Lesson in Sri Lanka

A very pleasant and informative day. Duneeshya was a very good teacher and was also very patient with out attempts at local cooking. I’m only sorry we couldn’t take our leftovers back to the hotel with us.
