Full description

Stay active during your vacation on a guided bike tour along the lush southern coastline near Tangalle. Cycle to sacred sites, through plantations, and keep an eye out for local wildlife along the route. Meet locals and have fun on your adventure knowing you're visiting the region in an eco-friendly way.

Meet your guide bright and early and cycle to your first stop: Mulkirigala Raja Maha Vihara. This ancient Buddhist temple sits on top of a 205-meter-high rock, surrounded by dense forest. Recognized as an archaeological site, the temple is the home to 2,000-year-old sculptures and paintings.

Next, cycle through paddy fields, coconut plantations, and cinnamon cultivations, learning about indigenous farming methods. Keep a lookout for wildlife, especially a number of colorful bird species and land monitors that lurk in riverbanks.

Stop to rest at some of the small food huts along the route, tasting local flavors and cooling off before continuing your journey.
