It’s all about the village life

Located in the Ella-Wellawaya area is the quaint and picturesque Etili Village. A tour of the village leads to interaction with the local community and helps travellers understand the way of life that is unique to those who practise Chena cultivation. On this tour, travellers can experience a fun ride around the village in a tractor, a boat ride on the lake, and try their hand at Chena cultivation. The excursion also features an authentic Sri Lankan lunch made from locally sourced fresh ingredients and the opportunity to learn about Sri Lankan cuisine. Thanks to a nature reserve surrounding the village, it’s a great place to go on hikes and catch sightings of wildlife too. A short hike from the village leads to a viewpoint that has panoramic views of the area and the lakeshore is the perfect place to settle down in the evening with a cup of tea, to catch an amazing sunset. This is a great tour that also gives back to the local community, so if you would like to experience it, please do let us know!
