What you can do
The slow pace of travelling by bicycle will enable you to interact with people at work, by meeting handicraft makers and farmers. After a quiet walk in the bird sanctuary, you will participate in an offering ceremony at the Hindu temple, while your lunch is prepared by a local family. After a healthy village lunch and a funny chat with your host family, you will visit the nearby farm. On weekdays, you will meet craftswomen, who will show you how to make beautiful baskets and boxes out of palmyrah leaves. You will then ride back to Batticaloa along a stunning deserted beach and observe birds and wildlife as you peacefully move along our gorgeous lagoon.
