We're off to Sri Lanka in couple of weeks with Red Dot Tours and we're just wondering how much of a problem leeches are going to be and whether its worth buying leech socks to take with us. We're staying at Kandalama, Chaaya Citadel in Kandy and going to Victoria Golf Club, then onto Tea Trails (via Kitulgala for some white water rafting) then down to Galle, followed by 2 nights at Bentota before heading back to the airport! Do you think that leeches are going to be a problem in any of these places? I'm thinking that Kitulgala will be the worst?
Thanks - any advice would be much appreciated!
