This is a very special place. Just the fact that guests have to walk 1.5-kilometres into the bush to get there makes it special, but more so the staff and facilities. The tents (three so far; plans to add up to three more) are very spaced apart and beautiful retreats, with plumbed baths and toilets, living room spaces (check out the amazing moths that come at night) and very comfortable beds that are in solid-frame tents under the main roof. There's evening a filled bookcase! Shashi and Vijinka are excellent naturalists, and the bird life is excellent--in November, Indian pitta; Peacock; Brown shrike; Jerdon's leafbird; Brown-headed barbet; Brown-breasted flycatcher to name a few, and Sankar deer.

The entire organization around the camp and its parent company Experiential Journeys is excellent ... I'd recommend a driver from that company, too, as the meeting spot is in a spot in the wonderful middle of nowhere, and the entrance to the path cannot be seen. Once there--and staying here is a treat--the service is perfect--good food, good people, calm.
After backpacking through the wonderful Sinharaka Rainforest and its very poor hotels, treat yourself to a stay here.

In the Sinhalese language (spoken in Sri Lanka), “Ahas” means “Sky” and “Pokuna” means “Pond” or “Pool”. Ahaspokuna is so named in reference to the lake here, high up in the hills, that is only fed by rain water. A former settlement that sprung up on its shores was subsequently also named “Ahaspokuna”. Today, the jungle tide has washed over where people once lived and the camp provides a wilderness retreat for those in search of something different.
