River Fishing Tour at Balapitiya River
This fishing tour will give you once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Balapitiya River where you can see kraal-fishing constructions and fishermen making their way in rowing boats to collect their catch of the day. The occasional blue kingfisher flits in the vicinity of the kraal, a pond heron stands tall in the water, and other wetland birds have arisen from their slumber. Here you can engage with the traditional ways of fishing with the rods and thereafter you will enjoy an excellent lunch or dinner in an Island.
