Full day tour to remote jungle village of indigenous people from Kandy

Select Date and Travellers

What to Expect
6:00: You will be picked up from your hotel and driven to Dambana 
9:00: Arrive at DAMBANA, the remote jungle village of indigenous people that is situated about 100km from Kandy, Sri Lanka. The population of these indigenous 'Veddha' people now consists of only about 350 families, a number significantly reduced from a once thriving community. The 'Veddha' are so influenced by the imposing dominant culture that they risk losing their traditions and what has been their livelihood for centuries. Visitors to this fascinating village have the opportunity to meet and chat with the people who live there, learn about their traditions, and gain a unique insight into their way of life.
12:00- 13:00 - Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant. 
After Lunch, you will be driven back to your hotel in Kandy. 
16:00: Arrive at your hotel in Kandy.
