Intro

Here our guide takes you for the day to show you around the small lanes and hidden treasures of the neighbouring villages in Batticaloa…

The bicycle rides are around 20 to 25 km long, split in various stretches of 4 to 5 km. For people who would be unable to ride bicycles, we can do the same itineraries by 3-wheeler, but bicycle is more fun!

In 'Palamunai Colours', you will explore the southern part of Batticaloa, riding along the beach, visiting the fish market and, depending on the season, local organic gardens. You will meet handloom weavers, making colourful sarees and sarongs, sharing with you their ancient knowledge of this traditional craft.

You will discreetly observe the midday prayer at the local mosque and interact with the believers. Your lunch will be prepared by a local family, and will reflect the typical food of the community. After a tasty meal and a relaxing chat with your host family, you will go through Kattankudy, a bustling Muslim town famous for its history and numerous businesses, visit its Heritage Museum, and might still have a bit of time to discover what a Madrasah is...
