Trekking Sri Lanka

One of the Best Treks in Sri Lanka that no Guide Book has found (yet)!

Okay, so we haven’t made it yet to Lonely Planets list of 10 Best Treks in the World but we’re very excited about this fabulous 4 hour hike we found, far away in a remote corner of the North Central Province in Sri Lanka. A place where life is (still) simple, elephants still roam freely, many in the village still bathe in a beautiful, huge tank and the little corner store is where the day’s news gets distributed!

  • A hike is a wonderful way to meet locals with character!

Character, history, local know how – an interesting local we met.

  • Visiting a local village home is a great way to learn about the culture

  • Sure! Visit the big local markets but don’t forget the village seller too!

  • The meeting point for the entire village

  • Walking Safari! Up close with troupes of Toque Macaque Monkeys.

This trek is perfect for those looking for a village walk, a day trek in Sri Lanka, or even as a family trekking holiday.

Ask Ayu in the Wild Holidays about treks in Sri Lanka or an experiential holiday where you leave feeling part of the culture and not just a visitor.

    Sounds like a great trek. What is the name of this fabulous place? “far away in a remote corner of the North Central Province” is a bit vague.

      Hello James- Its something we found ourselves in a lovely untouched, remote part of the North Central Province- where no tourists go! The locals (and we) prefer to keep it that way. So I’m afraid only those lucky enough to book An Ayu in the Wild Tour will get to know this off-the-guidebook trek 🙂
