This morning we start our trek from Naula on the edge of the little farming village, with a cup of hot ginger tea and some local sweets made by our guides mother. We see rural Sri Lanka at its best passing local farms, crossing a river and entering a thickly wooded forest, taking us from the low lying dry zone plains, up to the wet central hills. The vege-tation, climate and of course the views will change dramatically as we climb higher, stopping en route at a little village school for a water and fruit break. The final descent is through a forest to a little tea estate village and we end our trek mid afternoon before transferring to Kandy. This evening there is an optional visit of the very important Buddhist tem-ple that holds the tooth of Buddha.
