A perfect getaway in a picturesque setting - we sought a refreshing holiday and that's exactly what we got. Amidst the chirping sounds of birds and panoramic views across a "gigantic lake" (as appropriately titled in Sinhalese), what we also got were luxuriously designed tented accommodation with air-conditioning that had most of the amenities of a standard luxury hotel room. The view of Tissamaharama from the top of the action tower is breathtaking.
Late afternoon, we set off by a canoe with rows larger than us. It did give me a workout of sorts. We docked on a deserted island on the middle of the lake and was amazed at the sheer privacy of this island which provided a perfect backdrop for a camping site. Alas ! we hadn't brought our equipment with us to enjoy a sojourn in this island. we promised ourselves to come there again. Our return trip back to the mainland resort produced further thrills with a five minute dip in a shallow area of the lake - however we were warned of straying crocodiles !
Back at The Yala Adventure we freshened for the evening and midst a bonfire we had a barbecue with spirits. The resort staff took all pains to see that our stay was a wonderful and an enjoyable one. However, we did not have sufficient time at the resort to engage in the fun-filled action packed activities like abseiling, ariel roping and of course a game drive at the nearby Yala National park that are also part and parcel of The Yala Adventure that should not be missed. We promised to be back there for all of this...
