This book is for those who consider serendipitous encounters fascinating rather than nerve racking! For those to whom travelling is about history and archaeology, people and encounters, art and sculpture, birds, trees and water, sweating it out and day dreaming…
Every place,every trail described here,we have explored ourselves…Aluth Oya,a ‘palace’ buried deep in the forest;Manakanda,the unknown sister of Ritigala;the ‘one-size-fits-all’ stone beds of Garendigala;the moonscape of Erigeoya Wewa; the irrigation wonder on the plateau of Nuwaragala Kanda;cycle trails that follow the Mahaweli waters as it irrigates the dry zone farms…
We hope this will help develop an even greater sensitivity for our island:its natural environment & its people;our way of life & philosophy,the cycle of its past,present & future.Ever changing but enduring.
Maybe you will discover,as we have,that there is nothing quite like walking its length & breadth to appreciate the wonder we have been born to.
