We detoured & accidentally ended up at the SInharaja. But had the adventure of a life time exploring the Rain-forest, Beautiful Waterfalls and some Endemic & rare Species. Thank you Asela & Siril for experience & the outstanding knowledge you possessed and shared.

We had a great experience on this tour. Very professional guide, he answered all of our questions and gave a lot of information about the vegetation and the animals. He had an eye for spotting even the most camouflaged animals. Very beautiful

Went for this fantastic walk into the beautiful Sinharaja Rainforest. You are required to have a guide and Explore Sinharaja organised the best guide ever! He uncovered so many little creatures that I would never have seen and spoke really good english too. The waterfall was beautiful and lots of blue butterflies were there. Went swimming in this cool pond. The tour was so well organised, I'd definately recommend these guys to do the Sinharaja hike, really great.

The nature great, an experience you have to join. The tour guide took very good care of us. He told us about the island, pointed out possible dangers in the rainforest and took good care of us. The drivers were very safe in traffic. All the people were very friendly, polite and accommodating.
