This was a most surprising location. We wanted to do some trekking and be amongst the ‘real Sri Lanka’ and we couldn’t have had a better experience. Accomodation was basic, but clean and eco friendly. Monkeys played in the trees outside all the time! View...More
We are a family of four (kids age 11+13) that stayed at Polwaththa Eco Lodge 3 nights in July 2018. Rooms are very simple and hot water is rear, so if you are looking for luxury stay, you should probably go elsewhere. If you on...More

It was been pouring down in most parts of the island but news is that the rains will stop in the coming days with sunshine predicted in the Kandy region. Bare in mind that forecasts can be wrong but its looking from January onwards.
There are leeches around at this time but once the rain stops they will disappear. During rainy days we provide all our guests with leech socks and plenty of salt to keep them away. If it is raining then it is best to stay indoors and away from thick jungle.
Hope that answers all your quesitons.
