a campaign to save the rainforest in Sri Lanka
and explore the World Heritage Site of Sinharaja Rainforest. While exploring the evergreen forest and its inhabitants,
you can support our project in various ways. By staying as a guest in one of our accommodations
or by booking one of our activities, you help us raise the funds for our campaign.
If you are more of a hands-on type of person you can join us as a volunteer and help us to move the project further.
Deniyaya is the perfect starting point to explore the area of Sinharaja and of course, its rainforest. Join us on a day trip or even on a night hike to see the nocturnal animals. If you are more into waterfalls then don't you worry: we have plenty around here. For those with a bit more time to spare, check out our forest-camp option.
Take a hike through World Heritage Site Sinharaja. Breath the forest air, hear the music of mountain streams, birds, crickets and monkeys. Massive trees, slinging vines and animals to see. There are many unique animal species living here. We can't guarantee you to see them all, as it is not a zoo. What you see will always be a surprise. Will it be a millipede or a giant butterfly?
Hiking at night is a whole different experience and a new adventure. As soon as the sun is set, your visual sense goes down and your other senses are being put in a higher gear – especially smell and hearing. So that we will not miss out on any animals which start their day when everything is dark and deeply asleep, we will be armed with a flashlight.
For the real adventurers among you and for those who do not need comfort to enjoy nature, there are also campsites with wooden cabins to stay overnight in the rainforest. Dinner and breakfast cooked on the campfire, taking a nature bath in the river. This will give you for sure an earthly atmosphere.
There are several waterfalls in the area. Many easy accessible by three-wheeler. Others also require a small hike from the road. Many times, it is possible to swim at a waterfall. Sri Lankans find the water very cold. But that is relative, compared to the very warm seawater at the coast.
Would you like to visit the Sinharaja Rainforest and support the project? Stay with us!
Come to one of our guesthouses on the borders of the Rainforest Reserve or on the south-west coast of Sri Lanka.
The profits are used to raise money and found the campaign.
