What else can I do at Ahaspokuna other than walking?

 

ahp3Yoga and meditation

If you are keen to practice or learn yoga and meditation, the Ahaspokuna environment is one of the best locations in the world to do so. We could arrange suitable instructors for long stay clients to facilitate your tailor-made requirements.

 

 

Ayurvedic massage therapy

Sri Lanka is world famous for its original, age-old Ayurveda practice. It’s very different and independent from our neighbouring country. We are happy to arrange a professional Ayurveda therapist to come and do a massage for you at a pre-booked time.

 

 

exterior2Reading 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.

 

 

5Overnight 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 one hour and forty five minutes to get to it's 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 for lunch, finishing a safari around 11 a.m.

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.
