“I don't even know where to start to say how amazing is this places. I made a reservation for 2 days and I end up staying 5 dias in total. It's really strange how a place like this can be that beautiful. I arrive because I reas that you can walk the knuckles from here without a guide. It was true but what I like the most about my stay is the mountain Hunnasgiriya that it's in the background of the village. There a lot of beautiful hikes that you can do just around the maintain. Each with it's particular view. There are hidden temples, small religious places and villages all around the place. The other thing that makes this places so special was staying with this incredible family at where super kind with me. They treat me as a family and prepare me tee all day. They prepare authentic Sri Lankan food and they are genuinely interested in learning from travelers and they will share you details about their garden, the cooking and the properties of the ingredients. They were always smiling and having fun. It was nice seeing a family so happy.”
Its a unique place surrounded by misty mountains, water falls, tea gardens, birds and animals with tea estate workers. We offer nature, fresh water from the knuckles, delicious local food with what is grown in the garden. A special guided tour to the knuckels peak with a local man. Experience with adventure, nature and a true Sri Lankan experience.
“What my husband and I mostly value and take away from our 3day stay with Senaka is that he enabled us to look and feel into the life being lived by people in a mountain village, which hasn’t been negatively impacted by tourism. Watching the woman harvest tea every day, seeing children go and come from school, hearing them from far chatting like little birds, gifting monks with food for the day and Senaka’s patience and enthusiasm to answer all our questions and share his life story with us, make these 3 days truly unforgettable. Senaka’s and Komati’s hospitality and generosity is absolutely outstanding! We only realized once we were there, that we were the closest possible to the start of the knuckles hike (only 10min walk to the start), which was great as we were the first people on the track and had a very peaceful and quiet walk up with our gentle and caring guide Ari. What Senaka is offering is (in my opinion) what air b&b truly stands for.”
