Authentic Jungle experience and simple living amidst the nature at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge
Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is a real jungle experience and simple living in harmony with wild nature. The ecolodge situated 10 km southeast of Buttala is carefully fitted into impressive surroundings, the elephant tracks, bush-jungle, mature tall forest, rocky hills as well as the wildlife.
Completely off the standard beaten track, the lodge is a special and non-touristic place to stay and is about location and experience rather than just another accommodation option. Come for living and walking with nature in the Weliara jungles, an isolated wilderness in the remote southeast Sri Lanka. The Weliara jungle is hidden between Yala National Park and the Rahat Kanda mountains – a 20 km steep ridge of rocky hills, separating civilization from wilderness.
At Tree Tops Jungle Lodge, accommodation option is tented style canvas rooms. Four chalet type canvas lodgings with bathroom and toilet inside the tent, good space for a large double bed and a verandah outside the room with folding chairs and tables.
Through simple, camp style living conditions, staying at Tree Tops Jungle Lodge is an extraordinary trip, back to nature. Without electricity or other modern amenities and meals are mainly native curry style cooked on gas or traditional wood fire in the central mud-hud kitchen and restaurant.
The Tree Top cooks prepare delicious traditional Sri Lankan vegetable curries over a wood fire using exotic ingredients such as banana flower, manioc, green bananas, jack nut and fruits, with curry leaves found in the jungle.
You might be inspired by the alternative ways of cooking well known vegetables such as potato, carrots, beetroot, pumpkin, and leeks from the cooler mountains, prepared Sri Lankan curry-style.
