Love culture? Do you like to explore the raw culture of the destination you visit during your vacation? If this is so, the place you should be visiting when in Sri Lanka is the tiny village of Hiriwadunna.
The small village is situated towards the North-eastern region of Sri Lanka, well away from the commercial hub. But then again, luxury hotels like Cinnamon Lodge Habarana are just a stone’s throw away from here.
The village is home to farmers who grow crops like onions. The cultivation here is rotated between grounds as the soil is not that healthy around here. They use the Chena cultivation method where there burn the crops in one field and use the next one.
A watery mode of transport
The waterways are what the villages use to travel between villages. Try to hitch a ride on one of these boats if you dare!
Go on a village tour
If you are staying at one of the Habarana hotels, then speak to the front desk and they will organise a village tour for you to explore the local way of life.
