During this journey, you will take a refreshing bath in Ravana Falls, visit ancient cave temple, hike to the Nine Arches Bridge and Little Adam’s Peak through emerald-green tea plantations. The next day is all about chilling and soaking into the beauty and tranquility of Mamma Shanti place. Here, you will have two yoga sessions with incredible mountain views and you will visit a small local village for lunch. One more beautiful yoga session early in the morning, fulfilling traditional Sri Lankan breakfast, and the ocean is waiting ahead.
