Sinharaja Access Road, Mederipitiya, | Deniyaya, Galle 81524, Sri Lanka
We went there by tuck tuck. When we arraived there, we had a nice 4 hours walk thru the Jungle on a good trail. Our guide showed us a snake and some spiders.
It was a great experience. The Landscape and nature are amazing.
As I didn’t find enough instructions and what to expect while searching I thought of writing the review with all the details included which I got to know from our guide and I assume it will help the future travelers. Excuse for this long review...More
Although we had a great time here and saw lots of wildlife, including snakes beware of the scams. Here's what happened to us and we had an organised driver, who I actually didn't always trust unfortunately. He tried to tell us we needed to find...More
One of these largest remaining lowland tropical rain forest in Sri Lanka with exeptional biodiversity. The best time to visit there is during January to March where you get less rain during the day time. It's better to take Leach socks and insect repellents if...More
This is a unique tropical rainforest experience, best done by having a local guide ( certificate and ID). The guides generally live in the forest village and have an amazing knowledge of the abundant wildlife and rainforest ecosystem.

We enjoyed our walk in the forest reserve. The guides are very good at pointing out wildlife: lizards, snails, snakes, and a variety of birds. Because its heavily wooded its hard to get great photographs of the birds, compared to the national parks in the...More

Hi Replied to your first question thought you trip is to a' pura ,Sigiriya and Kandy and then so this. Like I recommended don't calculate the cost and distance this way. Complicated and you will get the wrong picture . instead contact travel companies And give your itinerary and ask for quotations for driver/ guide without commitment for his food and accommodation. Few guaranteed travel companies are Aitken spence Walker tours Tangerine tours Abans tours There are lots of...More
Sinharaja Forest day trip from Galle/Matara - advice please! (3 Replies)
Hello I was wondering whether Sinharaja Forest Reserve is possible as a day trip from either Galle or Matara? If so, is it easier to get there from Galle or Matara? Even though it will likely be more problematic (or impossible), public transport is preferred due to cost. Additionally, if you are able to get there early enough can you find a guide at the Deniyaya entrance? If so, what is the average price for one day? Any tips on public transport/what time to set off are more than...More

Hi there, If you leave Matara around 7 AM to Akuressa, possibly with a transfer there, you can be Deniyaya town by 9 and get a tuktuk to entrance. Hence just doable, from Galle too far. See tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293961-c205891/Sri-L… for prices and the info about the tracker. All the best, <Erik> & [Sandya]
