A S****y Couple of Days

... mahouts. Rosiee explained the structure of the day, and then i got stuck in. First on the list is cleaning out the elephants' beds! To cut a long story short, this involves picking up poo and throwing it onto the pile. The piles are regularly collected and taken to the onsite elephant dung paper factory. This is nowhere near as bad a job as it sounds! Elephants' diets are almost entirely fibre, so the dung is really solid and doesn't smell at all - a high relief for me! ...

Kandy

... actually quite civilised inside but not really surprising seeing as there are only a handful of trains a day. Good job seeing as the locals like to use it as an extra footpath (see photo).


Next we took a Tuk Tuk to the Botanical gardens, a former court of the King which was destroyed by the British and then set up as a branch of Kew Gardens, hence the nickname 'Kandy Kew'. Nice to get away from the crazy city for a couple of hours, even ...

I stayed in the loveliest hotel in kandy. The owner was just such a lovely man.

A travel blog entry by ceylontripper on May 12, 2013



Since of late, Bible Rock has become a bit of a tourist destination. Whenever I surf through the joyous World Wide Web, among the Syrian uprising, UEFA league updates and endless and pointless celebrity news, I often stumble upon a tour group that advertises treks/hikes to Bible Rock.

My travel buddy Prishan and I had been curious for some time to see what the fuss was all about. So we made Bible rock a part of a one day tour itinerary that ...

Saradiyel - One Crazy Mofo!

A travel blog entry by ceylontripper on May 11, 2013

After the lapse of a couple of months, my hiking buddy Prishan and another colleague by the name of Indika had the bright idea to do a hike without a lot of planning time. The target was to surmount Uthuwankanda and Bible Rock in one day and then come back to Colombo. We read a couple of blog posts from previous hikers and found out that this was indeed possible. If i remember correctly we had only about a week between the 'bright idea' day and the day of the ...
