The village homes are totally different to built up urban areas of Sri Lanka. The small houses are surrounded by green woods. It is common to spot watch huts in the fields from which the menfolk keep up at night on the lookout for wild Elephants and Wild Boar. Cross the Lake by canoe observing the rich birdlife. Once you reach the farm, the lady of the house gladly demonstrates her cooking abilities using a traditional hearth.
