The infrastructure for exploring the countryside is very good.
A friendly taxi driver will be pleased to take you on a round-trip for several days, visiting places of cultural interest, temples, national parks, the highlands, the pilgrims’ mountain of Adam’s Peak, the gem and jewellery stores etc. However, there are also many attractive sites just for a day-tour.
There are many attractive locations in the near surrounding of our village Gurupokuna, for example:
