This route is one of the hidden treks which usually stay undiscovered by the average tourist and includes a way through impressive tea estates and gorgeous hill countrysides. The entire Trek will take approximately 6 hours but rewards the participants with unique impressions. We overnight in our Trekking Lodge, Misty Mountain Lodge far off from any village or town. Here we are able to see enormous amounts of stars and shooting stars at night. Surely a highlight of this region.

We visit the nearby located villages, walk through paddy fields and pine forests.

With amazing views over this rich and, partly still, untouched Hillcountry. Overnight in Ella Flower Garden Resort.

Wildlife and Jeep Safari deep into Sri Lanka’s nature.

Comfortably the bus will pick us up at the Hotel and transfer us to Udawalawe. Today we dedicate our day to the National Park of Udawalawe. Here in this very flat terrain we spot huge groups of wild elephants. By Jeep, we drive into the National Park to see the animals in their natural habitat. A local park ranger whom guides us and explains the animals behaviors and daily lives to us. Hyenas, crocodiles, as well as lots of birds, can be spotted here. Our lodge is located about 30 min drive from the park entrance in a completely untouched village – which is an attraction by itself – surrounded by many flying Peacocks and Hornbills.
