The village, interspersed with babbling streams and ringed by towering trees, is a place where the man effortlessly co-exists with the wild. Here, you can witness the charm of local village life that beats to a completely different rhythm. The stillness of the hamlet is pleasantly disturbed by the sound of chirping of birds and rustling of leaves. The villagers live on agriculture and cultivate vegetables, herbs and spices. The path adorned with rustic foliage on either side, leads to dreamy landscapes of golden paddy fields bountiful with crop. A sojourn in this quaint village in Kandy will definitely give you a breath of fresh air and an opportunity connect with the locals.
Leave from Kandy in the early morning to kick off your trek and to explore the little hamlet.
