Cinnamon Plantation & Processing

What to discover

Do this tour if you want to follow the tracks of cinnamon.

Cinnamon is a major export product of Sri Lanka and its use in both cooking and medicine are increasingly appreciated.

Spending your holiday at Bombay Bicycle Club (BBC) will give you a special insight into this little known crop because we have it right here in the neighborhood.

We provide a tour of the plantation and demonstrations of cinnamon peeling and processing. And if you wish and you are lucky you can also help them out for as long as you want to.

You can experience both the harvesting and the production of cinnamon, which is fun and very interesting! Alone the smell of the peeled cinnamon trees is like a dream. Also, you can try a little bit of the fresh crust which we really recommend.

Here you can find out how much work is behind the production of cinnamon sticks and all the other cinnamon products.

We will also show you how to produce cinnamon oil.
The cinnamon oil is used in traditional medicines, especially in Ayurveda, which is the traditional medicinal system. It has been used in many cultures for dealing with a variety of health disorders. Likewise, it is used as home remedy against insects in the house or bad smells. Come and learn more about cinnamon and its versatile applications.

Andahalena Ella Waterfall

Andahalena Ella Waterfall

Andahalena Ella Waterfall

A nice small waterfall in Elpitiya.

Perfect for a half-day trip or day-trip if you also stop at a tea plantation and rice field.

Not very well-known among tourists.

Beautiful landscape and great adventure.

What to discover

The way to get there is an adventure, especially for kids. First, you follow a dinosaur footpath until you get to the forest. In the jungle you jump over some puddles, walk through a creek, cross several small mountain rivers and climb over rocks in order to reach the waterfall. Then you can either take the stairs or climb to reach the top of the waterfall.

A picturesque pool forms at the top, before the water cascades downwards. It is surrounded by trees. Truly beautiful and it’s just a short walk of about 20 minutes, where you will spot a lot of animals like tropical birds, chameleons and monkeys, too.

Unlike other waterfalls, here a bathing pool can be found at the top of the falls, where you will also meet some friendly monkeys.
