Tour in brief

You will arrive at River Garden Resort Belihuloya around noon. Our staff will receive you and a briefing will follow, giving you a comprehensive idea as to what you can anticipate in the coming 2 days. Lunch will thereafter be served, overlooking the beautiful Horton Plains Mountain Range.

After lunch, you will be taken on the trekking trail. You may carry a small backpack while all other baggage will be transferred directly to the camp.

During the trekking trail, you will walk through paddy fields, across rivers, and past local village houses with their well kept vegetable plots. It is an ideal opportunity to learn about the local agricultural systems and simple ways of village living. Along the way, in the jungle and village, you will also see several species of beautiful birds and butterflies and a small, charming waterfall. You are bound to feel tempted to take a dip in the crystal clear water and which you are welcome to.

The whole journey will take between 3 to 4 hours, depending on how often you want to stop; rest; take photographs; or simply to enjoy the wonderful surroundings.

You will finish the trail, reaching your camp overlooking the beautiful and expansive Samanalawewa Reservoir.

A scrumptious and welcome dinner will be served around 7.30 p.m.

Dinner is served early at the Camp, so that you can start the Canoe Trail early the following morning, around 7.30 a.m.

Approaching the bank of the lake is an adventurous journey in itself.  You will not be walking but will have to “fly”: our zip line starts at a tree top and lands at the lake bank below.

Whether you want to take your time and go for a leisurely paddle for a couple of hours, or do a challenging ride - which could very well be your workout - or simply spend a few hours exploring the perimeter of the reservoir,  will be happy to arrange it - ensuring you have an unforgettable experience.

The surrounding mountains dominating a landscape of numerous trees, add to the idyllic setting of the reservoir. Your 2 days here at Belihuloya may just go by too quickly.

  • Appropriate clothing and trekking shoes or boots for trekking is advised.

  • Best to wear shorts and t-shirts with soft shoes (river sandals or sports shoes) for the canoeing segment.
