Nilagama Village Tour was the highlight of our trip in Sri Lanka. We were warmly welcomed by Shanaka and Sanda. After an introduction about the village, we proceeded to an authentic and delicious Sri Lankan home cooked meal before commencing the village tour. Sanda, Shanaka's beautiful wife, gave us a cooking demo as well as allowing us hands on cooking. She also shared cooking tips and showed us the herbs growing in the garden. After lunch, we started the village tour in a Tuk Tuk. Shanaka gave us an understanding of village life from the livelihood of the blacksmith, the handloom weavers, the farmers..... and how each sustained the village. The catamaran ride on the lake was relaxing, a time to chill, connect with nature and enjoy the view. Another highlight of our tour was meeting Shadow the cow and valued team member whom Shanaka rescued from slaughter. A gentle soul who brought us on the cart ride in the village. The village tour was a time to get away from city life for a while and slow down. We had a great time and would recommend the Village Tour with Shanaka and his team.

This tour was so much fun and the warmth of our host and hostess was a delight. We loved being out in the countryside and my favorite part was the catamaran ride with the amazing amounts of bats flying around. Actually, I loved every part. The lunch was superb, some of the best food I have had in Sri Lanka and the atmosphere where we ate just perfect. Thank you for a lovely day!
