Tea Trails experience: cycling

Back Back

This cycling experience exclusive to guests staying at the Ceylon Tea Trails bungalows, is an excellent way to explore the lush tea country enjoy breathtaking views of the area.  

Experience Overview

After a hearty breakfast, you will enjoy a largely flat and downhill bike ride in the Castlereagh area. From your Tea Trails bungalow you will be taken along the paved estate roads that wind their way around the lake. The views are stunning, particularly on a clear morning. From here you will speed downhill to the base of the Laxpana waterfall, one of the highest in the country and then pause here and take a refreshing swim before settling down to a picnic lunch. Following lunch you can either ride out the uphill climbs or enjoy a sneaky transfer back to flatter terrain. By the time you reach your bungalow you will be deserving of a cup of fresh hot tea on the lawn.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
