Cara Chaminda Roshan

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!!!!

Jacqueline Deshan

Hiking Experience - Two Magical Days in Ella

We had only 2 days to get a taste of the hill country and Deshan made the very best out of our limited time, even though we booked super last minute. Wonderful views, great hiking trips, good local food and of course the tea, the trip included everything what we hoped for.
Deshan is a really likable, friendly and caring and had answers for all our questions. He took care of everything e. g. train tickets and hotel in Ella. We would definitely recommend him as a guide for your trip to Sri Lanka.

Ida Vishwa

Mountain Bike Adventure Outside of Kandy

Me and my husband had a great, fun and sportive morning in this mountainbike trip with Vishwa! Very good quality bikes in good shape, thick tires and a high frame (for tall people). It was a beautiful (also challenging) ride, through the mountains with spectacular views of Kandy, and through villages. Vishwa was very focussed on giving us a good time, adjusting the route to our skills and interests. He can make it an easier ride or more challenging if you wish. He brings drinks and snacks and can tell a lot about the plants, birds etc. It was a great workout and Vishwa is a wonderful guide!
