When we proceeded to that place, one person detailed our Sigiriya village tour program in nicely & he told that tour will take approximate 02 hours time.It included a bullock cart ride ,a catamaran ride, a walk to poor village house through paddy fields , cookery demonstration of Sri Lankan Authentic food and a tuk tuk ride from village to starting point.
We started our village tour by getting in bullock cart That was our first experience in our life time as these days we didn’t have any chance to do bullock cart ride in the commercialized areas.In the past bullock cart is commonly used as the primary mode of transport in rural Sri Lankan villages .
While we were riding , our assistant just asked us ‘ Do you like to ride a bullock cart by yourselves ‘ .That time we were little bit scared to do…… Somehow we did that ….Amazing 🙂 🙂 🙂
After 15-20 minutes bullock cart ride , it was ended at the bank of the lake.
From that point , we continued our journey to a 10-15 minutes traditional catamaran ride .While we were doing catamaran ride , after seeing the Sigiriya Rock located in far away we were very much astonished .That was an amazing scenery .We never forgot to take some photos of that beautiful scenery . At the same time, we saw few sri Lankan birds were sitting on the trees & branches .
While we were spending our time in the catamaran ride , our assistant plucked both fresh lotus flowers & lotus leaves from the lake , we were surprisingly looking at him. After seeing lotus garlands & nice hats of lotus leaves we were very much impressed… With a nice loving smile , he put those hats on our heads & put garlands round our necks .
Such a wonderful experience we ever had !!!!!
After we got down from Catamaran , we walked towards to village house through Chena farming .We saw some rice & vegetable cultivations .When we entered to house , we felt that we were in a traditional Sri Lankan village house.
One village woman who wears redda hatte (Traditional dress of Sri Lanka) , warmly greeted us with a nice smile saying,
She gave us a half an hour cooking demonstration on traditional Sri Lankan cooking . Our lunch was served in a buffet style , cooked rice with 5-6 traditionally cooked Sri Lankan curries and fresh fried fish in clay pots. Other remarkable experience was we ate our lunch with clean lotus leaves on top . After having our delicious Sri Lankan lunch we spent our time over there. Finally they dropped us to Starting point by tuk tuk.
Our tour ended with lots of unforgettable memories !!!
