Hike the Adam's Peak and Catch the Sunrise

Deshan is a good Guide. Timely, knowledgeable and very important climbing Adams Peak;encouraging.
He knows a lot of the nature and good spots. A pleasant person and also important, as he is a former pharmacist, He can really help when you got injured by giving good advice and medication. We really can recommand him as a guide for Sri Lanka. We enjoyed and felt save.

Amazing Waterfalls Day Trip by Tuk Tuk including Lunch

The day we spend with Roshan was breathtaking! We spend our day with him and his tuktuk in the knuckels range, the most beautiful viewpoints ever. Sometimes we stopt to hike to amazing waterfalls where Roshan talked about the plants and its function: limon grass, peper, coffee, tea. No tourist, only local people what made it so special. He let us show the beauty of Sri Lanka in Kandy what nobody sees. We had an amazing swim, a lovely diner made by his wife and a amazing time. We were back so much later than expected, he didn't look at the time what was even more amazing. We will never forget this trip and our lovely host Roshan. You have to do this!!!!

A customized trip with Kamal

We did a trip to Dambulla rock and pirudangala rock with Kamal and his friend Sigul! In the beginning I wasn't feeling very Well, but they did everything to make me feel better (they even gave me a natural pill from the spice garden)!! For lunch, we had to make our own food, and it was very good and nice how to learn to make sri lankan curry!
I would recommend kamal and sigul too my friends immediately!
Kind regards, Floris & marie from Belgium
