KINCHIGUNE NATURE TRAILKinchigune Nature Trail
This diverse trail of approximately 6km begins at the River Garden Resort in Belihuloya, running alongside a riverine forest and the Belihuloya river itself. During the trail, you will venture through paddy fields, across rivers and past local village houses with their extensive vegetable plots. It is an ideal opportunity to learn a bit about the local agricultural systems and simple way of village living. Along the way, you will also witness several types of beautiful birds and butterflies and some charming waterfalls. The trail finishes where the Belihuloya river meets the Samanalawewa reservoir. From there, it is a short climb up through the forest to the Kinchigune campsite.

CANOEING IN SAMANALAWEWA – 2 Hours
The still calm waters of the Samanalawewa reservoir are perfect for canoeing.  Whether you want to take your time and go for a leisurely paddle for a couple of hours, perhaps venturing out to the mouth of the Belihuloya River or spend an entire day exploring the perimeter of the reservoir, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience. The surrounding mountains add to the idyllic setting of the reservoir.  All groups will be supplied with an experienced  guide and modern life jackets, and a proper orientation will be offered for those who are new to canoeing.

ADAMS PEAK (SRI PADA)Adam's Peak (Sri Pada) - Sri Lanka
Begin the arduous 08 km climb to the misty mountaintop with our experienced local guides. You may reach the 2,240 meter high peak - the island’s fourth highest - at dawn to witness a glorious sunrise and the mountain’s shadow, cast by the rising sun on to the clouds below. Legend has it that, the footprint originally carved in the rock, and, now covered by an oversized reproduction set in cement, was made by the Buddha, on his third visit to the island.

Adam’s Peak is also known as the “butterfly mountain”, because large numbers of butterflies visit and perish there each year.

The mountain, on the western edge of the island’s central massif, looms over the surrounding hills, covered with lush, green jungle. (Peak wilderness sanctuary)

It usually takes three to four hours to reach the top, but during the pilgrim season, which begins in December and lasts till May, the throng is sometimes so great, it can take over - 30 minutes to move from one step to the other.
