A tour to Hiriwadunna - a beautiful village shaded on either side by a dry zone shrub forest, with unpaved gravel paths and humble village folk - will give you a chance to witness the environment of a typical Sri Lankan village life. A ride on a bullock cart along a dirt track and through rice paddies down to the picturesque Hiriwaduna Lake will leave you with a sense of peacefulness. A catamaran ride on the lake with its large variety of dry zone bird life and views of the surrounding forest, marshland and vegetable plots of local farmers, will be an unforgettable experience for visitors and will most definitely be one of the places they feel most at peace, during the time spent in Sri Lanka.
Apart from a catamaran ride you can take rides on a tractor or hop on one of the much-loved tuk tuks to a local home where you can interact with the family, witnessing and even assisting the women in the preparation of a typical Sri Lankan lunch using traditional Sri Lankan methods of cooking.
The adventure continues with viewing vegetable plots of local farmers who produce all their own food.
A visit to Hiriwadunna will no doubt be an exciting experience...
