Guide was knowledgeable and took good care of us. Do carry more than one water bottle with you and change of clothes is recommended. Good trekking, not too hard and lot of streams. We saw many different frogs and birds. Would totally recommend to anyone interested to visit a rainforest in Sri Lanka.
