What else can I do at Ahaspokuna other than walking?

Reading and writing

If you are an avid reader or a writer, there are plenty of places to find peace. If you do not want to bring any heavy books, we invite you to make use of our mini library.


Photography/photo hides

There are plenty of photo opportunities in the site itself. The hide closer to the waterhole also would provide you with great opportunities. However, this hide is not just for photographers, they are for anyone who loves nature.

Learning to cook

If you are keen to learn how we Sri Lankans cook, our chefs are glad to teach you a few dishes. They use firewood and clay pots as our traditional Sri Lankans do.


Overnight expeditions

If you are an ardent adventurer and want to experience overnight jungle “survival” in a cave near a beautiful waterfall, we are very happy to organise it for you.

History and culture

If you are interested in history, Ahaspokuna wouldn’t disappoint you. The settlement of a 35,000-year-old pre-historic man (Homo Sapiens Balangodensis) is very close to us and the hamlets closer to our camp are ideal to understand real Sri Lanka culture. You will most probably be amongst the first foreigners who talk to them face-to-face while stepping into their homes.

 Jeep Safari in Udawalawe National Park

If we measure direct, as the crow flies, Udawalawe National Park is located just about 15km away and it takes only about 30 to 40 minutes get to it's newest entrance. Hence, it's very possible to do a safari in the Udawalawe National Park.

We recommend a morning safari, leaving the camp early morning, where you can get back to the camp after lunch.

A H A S - P O K U N A   

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.
