Polonnaruwa to Giritale Village Ride

(Approx 20km)

After Breakfast transfer to Bediwewa which is situated a proximity to Polonnaruwa ancient capital. We will start the bike ride on the dam of a little lake and continue the ride along the beautiful village where you will have a great chance to mingle with the local farming community. Today we are in the heart of the rice cultivation and the granary of the island. This is an ideal day to learn about the rice cultivation and its culture behind. Next will have a short break while chilling out tasting the exotic coconut juice where we learn about the importance of the coconut tree by visiting a local family. Next we ride along a beautiful canal with the shades of Arjuna trees. The canal feeds little village tanks and other thousands of agricultural lands including rice paddies. Beside the canal it’s known as the birdwatchers paradise too. As we move along further we can get the hint of the flavor of the unspoiled authentic rural life. This is a very quite road on a flat terrain with plenty of tropical trees.
End of the canal ride a local family will be waiting to cook their delicious and authentic rice and curry in front of you. They will teach you how to make a nice lentil curry with a nice balance of all the spices. After enjoying the curry lunch, it’s a very short ride on to the Giritale lake bund where we complete the cycle ride. Before you hop on the vehicle enjoy a nice chilled Arrack cocktail served by the cycle team.
