Hiriwadunna Village Tour

1 Day

This private day excursion to the hamlet of Hiriwadunna in Sri Lanka showcases the laid-back rhythms of small village life. While local people fish and wash their clothes, they see species such as crocodiles, butterflies, and birds in the local reservoir. Then take a boat trip across the lake to the opposite side, where you’ll have a ‘bullock’ cart ride and a complimentary Sri Lankan lunch. At the local reservoir, look for butterflies, birds, and the odd crocodile. A traditional bullock cart is also available for hire. This is a fantastic way to experience Sri Lankan rural life.

You may visit the tiny hamlet of Hiriwadunna from Sigiriya to observe how the locals live. The day excursion lasts approximately 5-hours and includes a boat journey to the town (where you may observe numerous birds and maybe even crocodiles) and a stroll through the hamlet.

Expect to witness people fishing, going about their everyday lives, seeing more animals, and eating a home-cooked meal prepared by the villagers!
