  1. :

    A short trip but very interesting with exposure to the pristine forested surrounding. The water rafting was very interesting and jungle trekking was also good. We had teh chance to mingle with people in the village and they are very friendly. The village is very beautiful.

  2. :

    This is our second trip with Seerendipity. Earlier we did one-day Galle trip with them and this time we wanted to see a bit of countryside and do jungle trekking. This was a perfect trip for us because we love nature. Waterrafting was also very interesting. Our guide chamal was very nice and friendly.
