I had no idea there were so many different types of tea. The factory was very interesting. It was quite educational to see how they process the tea. They have a little store where you can taste all the teas and buy the ones you like. It was a very beautiful tea plantation. I also liked seeing the rubber trees and feel the sap.

We booked Ranjith to drive us from Una Watuna to Uda Walawe which took about 2,5-3hours. He charged us a fair and good price for this trip. Airco van was comfortable and clean. He drove safely and chill with some music on. We had very much the impression he liked what he did. Everything went smooth till drop off. Definitely someone to call or contact if you need a just price-quality service / transport.
We booked via him to bring us from Uda Walawe to Bandarawela (Ella). This was not with Ranjith himself but with one of his friends. Apparently there has been a miscommunication between Ranjith and this new driver since the latter asked for more money in the end, because he misunderstood about our final destination and did not got the info as we had the impression. Nonetheless he understood this - we also showed him the evidence of the whatsapp correspondance - and he was not upset nor pushy towards us. Apart from this little inconvenience everything went smooth and honest. No reason not to look into the possibility of booking Ranjith though.

Wir haben Dinesh's Nummer von einer Freundin gekriegt und einige Zeit vor unserem Urlaub mit, super einfach, per Whatsapp Kontakt aufgenommen. Dinesh spricht super Deutsch!
Vorab haben wir auf seiner Internetseite einen groben Überblick gekriegt, was einzelne Touren beinhalten und konnten somit unsere individuelle Erlebnisliste zusammen stellen. Hat von Anfang an alles super geklappt, er hat uns vertraut, wir haben ihm vertraut - alles bestens. Wir hatten eine 5 tägige Tour mit so vielen unglaublich schönen Erlebnissen. Wir haben 7500 Stufen zum Adam's Peak erklommen, Rotte auf dem offenem Feuer gebacken, unglaubliche Tempel gesehen, eine wahnsinns Safari erlebt und noch vieles mehr. Dinesh hat auch ziemlich schnell gemerkt, dass er uns mit kulinarischen Sachen begeistern kann und hat immer am Straßenrand gehalten um uns Sachen zu zeigen und zu kaufen.
Alles in allem kann ich Dinesh und sein ganzes Team wärmstens weiter empfehlen, er hat diesen Urlaub zu etwas ganz Besonderem gemacht, wofür wir ihm sehr dankbar sind.
Hoffentlich bis irgendwann mal, hier in Deutschland!

Small farm crested to protect the endangered turtles.
Eggs collected and buried in the sand until they hatch.
Reared in ponds before releasing
Of the 8 different varieties of turtles in the world 5 are found here.
All turtles lay 105 eggs 6 times a year.
So much to learn from the guides. Well worthwhile stopping to learn more.

Surf School Sri Lanka offers you an amazing combination of the highest possible levels of surf coaching in some of the most user friendly surf conditions on the planet. We offer excellent accommodation options where the surf is on your doorstep and our practise and chill centre is unlike anything worldwide.
I attended surf school for 7 days and it was totally worth it. Thanks their good coaching system with video analysis of Surfing lessons, balance board, Surfing technique, and various speeches, I really improved my Surfing. Coaching outside and inside the water was very good, they really go into details about problems you have and always find answers to it.
Keep up the good work!
Cheerio, Big Wave Mike

The "Sea Turtle Farm & Hatchery" is a non - profitable organization which is maintained for the survival of Sea Turtles for the next generation. The "Turtle Farm" is situated in Koggala (southern part of Sri Lanka - Galle District) near to the beautiful beach. That is 12km from the Galle - Matara main road. The center was started in 2010 and up to now we have released more than 100,000 Turtles.
A very small place with around 10-12 pools with various types of turtles. Some are awaiting return to the sea after treatment, others been rescued following injuries. Also have a hatchery and for an extra 1000 rupees you can release one to sea. Guides show you round and pass on their knowledge, tip expected!!

Very interesting and educational. We saw numerous snakes including 3 types of Cobras and we got to hold a few none venomous snakes.
The guy was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. I'm glad that the snakes are released back into the wild at Yala national park after 2 week's as I feel that the snake farm is now more a tourist attraction then a place for research.
The only complaint I have is it was a quite distressing seeing the guy antagonize the poor cobras. He was clearly doing it for us so we could see the snake with its hood up and I felt it was a little unnecessary. I also thought that we were allowed to give a donation at the end but apparently it's a set price of 1000 rp..

The Cinnamon Experience is a unique and informative journey through the urbanity of a cinnamon plantation. We explain the secrets about the history of true cinnamon, the maintenance, the medical benefits and other important facts about cinnamon while you get an experience about the harvesting process and the typical village life by yourself. Enjoy the Peacocks that regularly visit Villa Mayurana and dream of the Kings of past, the Cinnamon wars and sinking Cinnamon ships of yonder. Fill your day with the memories of legendary Cinnamon making experience.
The experience of the Cinnamon Experience was pleasant to the mind, the eyes and the palate full of interesting information about and around cinnamon in beautiful surroundings topped off with the wonderful intensity of Sri Lankan cinnamon. Afterwards I wondered why Sri Lanka was not as famous for its cinnamon as its tea. I would recommend the Experience to anyone.
