Achi is a great guide ! He is very knowledgeable, even knows the scientific names of the fauna and flora. He knows how to spot the animals and the different species of flora. He is also flexible as I asked to do a longer walk and he went with it. I definitely recommend him. I also recommend this hike... The forest is wonderful... Filled with such a wide variety of fauna and flora, it makes it very unique. I've been to the Amazon, and I was still impressed by everything here. Definitely something to go look at.
I had a full day hike in Sinharaja Rainforest in Sri Lanka with a guide named Achi and he wasn’t only a great guide, brought me food according to my needs, but he spotted all the fantastic animals in forest and looked after me very well. He was also outstandingly helpful when I had trouble getting to and finding my accommodation, knowing that someone local was ready to help with such things at 10pm in a small town at the gate of the jungle was more than comforting.
Beautiful forest with so much to explore.
Guide had great communication ahead of tour. Met me at the bus station and drove us straight to the forest. Friendly and knowledgeable about the forest itself and local history. Special interest in birds if that is something you're keen on.
He helped me spot all kinds of wildlife and vegetation.
We also had a lovely homemade lunch and swim next to the river, and then relaxed and watched a family of rare birds frolic around us.
One of my most memorable afternoons on my trip to Sri Lanka.
