Misty Valley Trail

The Misty Valley trekking trail takes you back in time; reminiscent of childhood stories of ancient Sri Lankan village life. To some of you travellers, these villages may not even exist and to some of you - they may simply be part of the imagination.

It is our joy to take you on a journey that still exists, a  trekking trail that takes you from Chena (slash and burn) cultivations, to picturesque terraced paddy fields and forests patches, to reach sleepy villages in the Misty Valley. What’s more, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the villagers’ genuine warmth and sip a cup of freshly brewed tea or enjoy typical regional cuisine, made to perfection by the womenfolk.

Misty Valley Trail Knuckles Mountain Range Sri Lanka 1We will visit a house in one of the villages where you will be hosted for a cup of tea or lunch a place where you will be able to experience the local hospitality and flavour some local delicacies based on recipes that are passed down from generation to generation.

Nevertheless modernization is imprinting it’s arrival. The changes are inevitable. The panoramic hills and the stretches of grasslands are slowly beginning to fill with small hotels. The  gravel roads that were used as walking paths are now paved allowing motorists to access the villages by vehicles,

Although it is hard to be absolutely precise about how hard a walk may be,we have developed a guideline that is likely to help you in understanding the level of intensity of the trekking trail. Trail Grading Guidelines

Wonderful stay at Mahoora Tented Safari Camp Yala

"From the moment we were picked up to the moment we sadly had to leave, Mahoora staff provided us with an experience we will never forget. We did 2 safaris, 1 afternoon and 1 the next morning. So lucky to witness leopard up close and be able to watch her hunt!!! 

 All staff at the camp are to be highly commended. We loved every minute of it and hope to be back for longer next time"
