Tour in Brief

Our guides will meet you at our activity center and after the initial briefing we will start our cycling journey.

Departing from near the activity center, you will reach the Gannoruwa Agro Farm – an 80-hectare facility where you can see local agriculture at its finest. A diverse array of agricultural industries such as fruit and vegetable gardens, beekeeping, plant pathology center, insect zoo, and herbal gardens are on display.

The next stop is the Dawson Tower in Kadugannawa town, a monument to the commanding engineer of Ceylon in the 1800s, Captain Dawson, who built the country’s first highway system.

A visit to a local home-based brass workshop follows, where you can see how brassware is manufactured, as it has been for several centuries.

Finally, you will head to an authentic spice garden where you can see various traditional spices of Sri Lanka.
