All about the trip
Sri Lanka is a land that is truly unique. It offers something for everyone. For this trip, we tried to choose the most interesting places on the western coast of this island.
Our first stop is Kosgoda turtle hatchery. It is Sri Lanka's pioneering sea turtle conservation project and a prime turtle nesting site. You will learn why the conservation project is needed and how the project is operated by local people with the help of volunteers.
We continue to Madu Ganga in Balapitiya. This wetland spreads over 900 hectares of area and most of it is covered with water. There are totally 64 islands in Madu Ganga. This tour will take around 2 hours and it’s advisable to bring drinking water, sunglasses and hats. Some boats have adjustable roofing covers. We will then move on to Hikkaduwa, a famous beach hangout for backpackers and coral lovers.
After a quick stop by the sea, we will visit the Ambalangoda traditional mask museum. With the disappearance of the traditional beliefs and with a lack of interest in traditional Sri Lankan plays, the traditional mask culture has practically disappeared. Here, you can admire its heritage.
We will finish our journey on Galle Fort which is a historical, archaeological and architectural heritage monument. It was built by Dutch in the 17th century.
