Programme

Day 1

Arrival: We meet you at the designated meeting point by noon and start the short welcome trek to the camp. Your luggage will be taken by our porters, leaving you free to take in the sights and sounds around you. After the welcome briefing by the Camp Manager at the camp lounge area, you may check-in into your suite-tent. You will be briefed on the features of the tent and the associated facilities. After you settle in, lunch will be served.

Post-lunch: Our naturalist will discuss the evening programme with you. You are free to take it easy and enjoy the large campsite and the surrounding area, or you may opt for the 2 ½ to 3-hour adventure bushwalk that will take you through the grassland and forest. If the weather permits, you can have a refreshing soak in a natural rock pool located at the bottom of a waterfall.

Evening: We meet you again around 6 pm at a unique viewpoint that lets you enjoy a magical sunset so vivid, no camera in the world can do it justice.

Dinner & Drinks: Take a relaxing soak in your Bush Bathtub and meet us near the campfire for drinks, dinner and campfire stories under the stars.

Post-dinner: Wrap up a day of adventure and bliss with a relaxing night walk. If you’re up for it, bundle up and visit our “Hide” near the waterhole for an immersive experience of nocturnal wildlife as the chilly forest breeze sweeps across the grasslands. Or, simply retire to your suite-tent or Star Bed and enjoy the rest of the night isolated with nothing in-between you and a billion stars.

 

Day 2 

Pre-breakfast: We start the pre-breakfast guided nature trail at 6:30 am. This bushwalk takes about an hour – you are free to brave it, or you may sleep-in and meet us for breakfast at 7:30 am.

Post-breakfast: We depart for a late-morning, 3-hour bushwalk that cuts through the grasslands and goes deep into the forest. If the weather permits, a refreshing shallow dip on the top of the Gan Ella Waterfall is also included.

Lunch: We arrive back at camp for lunch at around 1 pm. Sunbathe on your Day Bed, unwind in the Bush Bathtub or simply fall asleep in your private garden hammock and use this time to rest up for your evening excursion.

Evening: Our evening trek will take approximately 2 ½ to 3 hours which goes through an elephant-made path into the grasslands and forest.

OR

You can skip the trek and take in the beauty of Ahaspokuna and its surroundings at your leisure.  

Day 3

Morning: Decided to sleep-in for Day 2’s pre-breakfast nature trail? Here’s your chance to still experience the forest come alive at sunrise in Ahaspokuna! Embark on your pre-breakfast nature trail at 6:30 am and arrive back at camp around 7:30 am for a delicious breakfast.

Post-breakfast: Sometimes goodbyes can be long and fun, and that’s precisely what’s in store for those leaving the camp! Your departure trail is roughly a 20-minute trek with a descent of about 300 meters, taking you back to where we first met you. This is where we bid you farewell and you leave behind the world of Indiana Jones… until next time!

Ahaspokuna Stories



 ahaspokuna logo

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 rainwater. 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.
