What to expect

Enjoy a private trekking tour of Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a veritable Garden of Eden just waiting to be discovered. Home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, Sinharaja is both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve. That's because as the island's last viable area of primary tropical rainforest, it features almost two-thirds of its endemic trees and also boasts endemism rates of 50% for mammals and an astonishing 95% for bird species.

Your guide will lead you down overgrown trails, past streams, rivers, and waterfalls on the lookout for wild animals and rare plants. It's the trees that conceal the rainforest's fauna – birds, tree frogs, monkeys, and lizards. Even if you can't see them, you can listen out for the calls of the grey hornbills, or the sounds of monkeys in the treetops. The rarely sighted Sri Lankan leopard also prowls this territory, so keep your eyes peeled for a glimpse. After the trek, enjoy a well-deserved lunch before returning to your hotel.
