Neatly tucked away just 50km from Balapitiya, the outskirts of the Kanneliya forest houses around 78 villages. Your tracker is from one of these villages and has spent his entire life within the reserve. Our recommended trek, approximately 2 hours, takes you passed the Nevada tree to the beautiful Anagimale Waterfall. The tracker will walk you through the forest, showing you endemic plants and trees, and pointing out any animal sightings along the way. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even crawl through a mini cave underneath the rainforest floor! You will stop at the waterfall for refreshments and a quick break, before heading back to the entrance of the forest. You’ll finish up with a hearty, authentic, Sri Lankan rice and curry lunch cooked by your tracker’s wife in their nearby home, served at a table in the shallows of an idyllic lake. The scenery in the area is straight out of The Jungle Book and the opportunity to be out in nature makes this a fantastic experience for children and families.
