Plunge into a land of fantasy and excitement with Sri Lanka holidays designed to spirit you to a dream island full of wonders waiting to be discovered! Hook up with one of the best local names in the travel industry, with Walkers Tours offering you a delightful selection of Sri Lanka tours that covers awe-inspiring ancient sites, elegant colonial locations, and lush green forests, mountains, and nature reserves. But perhaps one of the most famous local legends is that of Saradiel, Sri Lanka’s very own Robin Hood who stole from the rich merchants during British occupation and shared his bounty with the poor. He was considered a traitor to the crown and colonialists who occupied the island at the time. During a period of almost three years, he continued his campaign to level the financial imbalance of the area, and was heralded a local hero by the grateful masses. Hike to the top of “Uthuwankanda”, the location of his cave and breathe in the air of a local legend. Visit “Saradiel Village”, which is a faithful replica of a 19th century village and learn more about the man behind the myth.
