I booked last minute and experienced a well-organised trip with The guide Janaka. He was such a pleasant person with good knowledge about the nature. It’s a very nice experience, since you get to hike in an area where there aren’t too many people, getting the authentic feeling of nature.

We booked this trek very last minute and were very impressed with the organisation and communication. Collected the next day by our guide Chamara and off we went. The trek was fantastic, despite all the rain. Chamara was an excellent guide with great knowledge of the local area, Flora and fauna. He was incredibly kind and attentive throughout the day. The camp was simply but comfy and we had a great night sleep through a huge storm. The food was a real highlight. Unbelievably generous portions and very tasty! The second day was just as good as the first. Great hike in the sunshine to the peak. What a lunch spot! All in all a fabulous experience. A great company. I would not hesitate to recommend. Nipuna even did our laundry which really was above and beyond.....

Booked this at the last minute, great communication from Nipuna, picked up the next day by Chamara and our adventure began. Can’t fault the organisation, professionalism and the trek itself. Day 2 was hard up to the highest peak but loved it and the views were amazing. Food was great and a campfire evening just made the day. Definitely recomend

This was one of the best guided trekking experiences I've ever had. It all started when Janaka jumped out of the jeep at our hotel and greeted us with his fantastic energy. His joy and enthusiasm never wavered throughout the two days, even when he was plucking leeches from my shoes. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the area, and knows his way around enough to customize the hike as needed (due to weather, scenery preferences, energy levels, etc.). Our stay at Basecamp was great - comfortable tents, flush toilets, electricity and yummy food. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Nipuna was quick to communicate and helped organize everything quickly, as this was a last-minute decision for us. I definitely recommend trekking with Nipuna and his team. **By the way, we were not asked to do a Tripadvisor review.
