Trip Overview

Discover the unique beauty of Maduganga nature by boat. You will see kraal-fishing constructions and fishermen making their way in rowing boats to collect their day's catch. You will pass several islands in this lovely river and stop in a cinnamon island to see the cinnamon making process. You will also visit an island temple. At the end of this memorable boat tour, you will be taken to visit a turtle hatchery in Kosgoda that is famous for its sea turtle conservation project operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka.
