Just a 15 minute drive away from the comforts of Cinnamon Lodge Habarana, lies a scenic Native village with its unpaved gravel paths and humble village folk. Shaded on either side by dry zone shrub forest, the dusty gravel path and subsequently the red soil of the tank bund will lead the visitors to an indigo reservoir which sets a stunning contrast of colors. A line of cormorants flying in formation will eventually stop to rest on a cormorant tree and the butterflies and dragonflies found at the edge of the shrubs create a kaleidoscope of color that rivals the equally vibrant wild flowers.

 

As you walk further along the Lake bund witness the silent and still waters of the reservoir rippled by a lone fisherman mounted on his catamaran. Experience the reservoir as the fishermen would do by taking a catamaran ride on the reservoir, and glide through the still waters and abundant lotus plants. At the end of the catamaran ride, experience another form of ancient village transport and take a ride in a bullock cart to end the experience of a life time.
