Hike the Adam's Peak and Catch the Sunrise

Deshan guided me for four days, during my time from Kandy to Galle, designing the trip to what suited me. I had a biggish itinery but with a short time. Deshan drives too, so this was brilliant logistically. We went up and down Adam's Peak and he was very understanding the next day when I was waddling like a penguin. He sorted the tickets for the spectacular scenic train ride from Hatton to Ella, as well as all the activities in Ella. The journey from Ella to Galle was long, but he broke up the journey with nice activities - waterfalls and visiting the Cinnamon Island, so you can see how cinnamon is produced and get your feet cleaned by fishes! Most of all, what's great about Deshan is that you can talk to him about anything; politics, history, culture, music, as well as find out what it's really like to be a Sri Lankan. He clearly loves his job and his country very much. It was a real pleasure to spend those few days with him. Highly recommended!

Amazing Waterfalls Day Trip by Tuk Tuk including Lunch

Roshan took us on an incredible trip to three waterfalls in the Knuckles Range outside of Kandy. It was brilliant from start to finish he is an excellent guide and points out all things on interest. The waterfalls & the scenery from the Tuk Tuk were incredible and swimming in the final one capped on an excellent day.

Amazing lunch cooked by Roshans wife included and eaten by the river.

Couldn’t recommend this trip highly enough it’s awesome.

Roshan goes above and well beyond to make this incredible.

This is simply a must do.
