Trekking in Mediwaka Village. Starts with a drive on the scenic and well carpeted A26 Kandy-Mahiyangana road (1 hour drive). This ancient village (established in the 14th century by the king of Kurunegala) has no proper road access which allows it to retain it’s old charm – water-buffaloes still work the terraced rice-fields. This trek can begin with a school visit (50 girls and boys, 5-10 years old) where guests have the opportunity to give the children gifts such as pens and exercise books. The walk will take you to different parts of the village, along rice-fields and vegetable plots with the “fish-therapy” in the river, being the highlight for many.
