Discover the beauty of the Gin River without causing any damage to its aquatic life by forgoing engine-driven motor boats in favor of authentic, hand-oared canoes. If you're interested in the true river experience (and an arm workout), you can even paddle the boats yourself while sipping on refreshing mangrove apple juice. Lifejackets are provided. The Curd, The Paddy, The Chenas and Semi-Urban LifestyleAt 9:30 am, you will explore the beautiful Meepawala/Holuwagoda area of Sri Lanka where lifestyle practices are largely based around agriculture.
