What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

For days, each was better than the last. My favorite was the long hike beginning up in a cloud forest, walking down through varied landscapes and tea plantations, ending at a huge waterfall. Runners up: seeing wild elephants (and all sorts of other wildlife), nutmeg and cinnamon trees, floating down the Kelani River, cycling through clouds of butterflies...

Our Response

We have spoken with our local agent, who told us: I had already taken up the driving issue with the drivers in Yala. This is a huge problem we are faced with and we have been trying to educate the drivers, but have not had much luck so far. I will see how we can get them to be more disciplined when they are with customers.  If we and our agent are unsuccessful in ensuring that the drivers conform with our responsible tourism ethos, then we will have to drop this visit.  But we would like to try and improve matters, rather than just stay away.

What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?

The cycling was a highlight.  We rode around vivid green paddy fields, through villages and jungly forest, and all the local people we came across replied to our waves returning the gesture and with big smiles.

This was an absolutely amazing trip and our guide and the Sri Lankan people were so friendly, helpful and always smiling. The mix of culture and trekking/cycling is perfect and if you're of a normal standard of fitness then you should be fine - just be prepared to sweat. A LOT. The humidity took some adjusting to!

In the guide notes it says that the tips money is £25 but actually it's more like £40 so be prepared for that when your guide asks you. It's easy to change money over there but the airport (Sri Lankan side) has the best rate of exchange. If you can buy leech socks, they're also a good thing to have for the wet zone eco-lodge.    

If you're thinking about this trip, I can't recommend it enough!! (ASL -29th July 2011)
