Sinharaja Forest Reserve - experienced guide needd

We (2 people) would like to visit the forest between the 6th and 7th of January.

Since it will be our first time in a rainforest, we would like to get the full experience.

Ideally, 2 full days with a very experienced guide.

My Question is - where can I find and book such a guide in advance?

Hi there,

Don't see a strong need. At the entrance for around Rs 1000/day you can hire an experienced tracker-guide, these are almost compulsory anyhow as the paths in the reserve aren't that well marked. The two we've had spoke English well enough and had a vast and deep knowledge of all flora and fauna there.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
