Lesser known attractions in Sri Lanka – trekking through the lush foliage

Although Sri Lanka is famous for its golden beaches and cultural sights, the lesser known country sights and indigenous life of its people only be seen through trekking in to central hills, the trekking country of Sri Lanka where one sees the real Sri Lanka. Here is the chance to get to know the locals, their lifestyle and to take in all that Mother Nature has to offer with its geographical and bio diversity.

With this in mind experienced tour operators like Jetwing Travels keep trekkers away from the more popular places visited by every day tourists to visit places where one sees the real Sri Lanka through Sri Lanka trekking; a scenic journey into the rich landscape of Sri Lanka at central hills in Hunnasgiriya. Trekkers could relish the scenic trekking journey, as they are surrounded by jungle, green hills and valleys, listening to the trickling murmur of hidden waterfalls and seeing terraced lush green rice fields. One could take a dip in crystal clear water in jungle pools teeming with endemic colourful fish to Sri Lanka. The jungle surrounding these streams is teeming with wild life and wild flowers an enthusiastic trekker could relish.

In the typical village hamlets where ordinary people live, trekkers could observe the way of life of villagers and observe the thatched mud houses with low roofs and small windows that keep away the wind and cold; a typical indigenous architecture used in house construction. In these villages, trekkers could enjoy sweet Kitul toddy a mild alcoholic drink from nectar of Kitul tree. By the road side one could observe Cardamom spice plants growing wild.
Trekking through lush green tea gardens one could see damsels in colourful dresses picking tea buds and visit to a tea factory where the famous Ceylon Tea is made, the aroma of freshly made tea and a cup of refreshing tea at the tea factory will be a memorable end to the trekking tour.
