Abel Deshan

Hike the Adam's Peak and Catch the Sunrise

For a good price we had an amazing tour with our guide Deshan. He really made an effort to show us the real Sri Lanka. Also he listens very good to his customers demands. Overal we had a perfect organised two day tour. He is friendly and also important; he speaks very good English. So for everyone who is going to Sri Lanka and need a good tour guide: Book with Deshan. Thanks again from The Netherlands!

Amazing Waterfalls Day Trip by Tuk Tuk including Lunch

We waited to review the trip with Roshan until we got back to Australia to be sure we could do it justice. Because it really was that amazing.
An entire day of waterfalls hidden away in secluded villages, with not a tourist in sight. The swimming hole at the end of the trip was a perfect way to finish it off and cool down after a morning of hiking to each fall, with crystal clear water and a lunch which was the best meal we ate on a 22 day 2 country trip.
Roshan was a fantastic driver and guide, and he had a great eye for spotting plants as well- we found all the ingredients for a curry, nutmeg, pepper, lemongrass, cinnamon, and dessert too, with local oranges, tea and cocoa! The walk through the rice paddies of Roshan's village was beautiful, and by the end of the day, we were wishing we had chosen the longer trip which involved a homestay. If we ever make it back to Sri Lanka we will be booking again, as this was the highlight of our trip and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
A word of warning though, wear long pants, bug repellent and sturdy shoes- getting to the falls involves some rough tracks, and one of those had a thriving community of leeches. Don't let this put you off at all though, the waterfall at the end of the path is without a doubt worth it, as is the swim, lunch, and all the sights along the way.
Thanks again Roshan for an absolutely wonderful time.
