Bird Watching:

Kumana is also known as the birding paradise of Sri Lanka and here’s why!

  1. Kumana villu a swamp of 750 acres (a little over a square mile) is the nesting colony of over 3000 birds of 22 species, Perhaps the only nesting site of so many aquatic birds in such a small area. From April to September every year hundreds of Pelicans, Painted Storks, Spoon Bills, Open Bills, Ibis, the four species of Egrets, the four species of Herons, Cormorants, Darters, Whistling Teal, Jacanas, Black Winged Stilts, Moor Hens, and Purple Gallinules gather in this Villu to nest.
  2. The series of Lagoons on the eastern boundary of the National park attracts hundreds of migrant waders from November to April. 67 species have been recorded in these areas to date
  3. The terrain of the National Park with its many plains, Rocky outcrops, and riverine forest provide nesting site to the 162 species that form the resident species of the national park. It’s also the home range of Sri Lanka’s Largest and the rarest resident bird, The Blacked Necked Stork.

Trekking Adventures:

The adventure takes another twist with river crossings in Kumana during the season and many treks begin within a mere 30 minutes adventurous drive. The treks are generally towards caves and caverns where 3000-year-old prehistoric caves are visited and some ancient temples. There are many rocks to climb and ancient sites to visit. Treks can be as short as 30 minutes and as long as you wish it to be depending on your interest and fitness.

Our general treks can be done with minimum fitness and all it needs is a positive outlook to adventure most professional and extended treks are pre-planned and any trekking adventure such as this will need pre-planning and organization.

Kumana is littered with caves, caverns, paintings, scriptures, rock carvings that strayed along with the ancient civilizations alongside the Kumbukkan River. We take you to these historical sites of Sri Lanka where it remains untouched and protected by nature. Some ancient sites and statues are dated over 3000 years and the caves we visit have evidence of the primates of Sri Lanka who had fought their wars against cannibalism all those thousands of years ago where it has to be seen to be believed!
