7 Waterfalls Close to Colombo

7 Waterfalls Close to Colombo

This is a very unique experience in terms of its verity and convenience. - The tour takes you to 7 different waterfalls which are hardly visited or know even by the locals. They are less crowded (almost secluded) and you will feel much more closer to nature. - We have carefully curated this tour to fit right in to your island adventure. Unlike other tours that are offered in the central highlands of the island, arriving at the trail head only requires only 45 minutes of driving from your hotel in Colombo, which will leave you with more time to enjoy the waterfalls and the scenery and return back to your hotel by lunchtime. - It's not just a waterfall tour, you will have a private waterfall all to your self to relax and will be treated with scrumptious local cuisines to keep you content.

A tour where Food Tasting and History of independence comes together. The tour covers Colombo in full ! You will taste all sorts of street food, and have dinner with a local experience, but at a selected place ensuring decent standards. Street foods are naturally spicy and come in small portions to try, but I ensure dinner to be edible by anyone and a standard portion.

Visitors of any age can join this, and Im flexible to adjust depending on their specific requirements. (Ex. if you do not wish to have street food, lets replace that with some traditional dessert). You may take photographs as much as you want.
