Angampora
Sri Lanka, a country with a rich history that goes back for over 3000 years tells us of great sports that were enjoyed by the kings who ruled this wonderful land. Unarmed combat among champions had been the pinnacle of all events. In the past ages, where the law of “survival of the fittest” prevailed, this tiny nation had to hold its own, mostly against the mighty India. They were highly supported by the kings.
However, this great island fell under the British rule in 1815. It is important to mention here that was not after defeat by war, but due to falling prey to conspiracies planned by the British. Immediately thereafter the martial art schools appear to have been neutralized. Practice of martial art was prohibited and any who defied were persecuted. Thus began the era in which, an art that protected the people of the island for over 2500 years, was being forced to oblivion.
Our ancestors who knew the value of this great martial art, in a last bid to save the knowledge, have then turned into secretly preserving it within the families


Village Tour with lunch
Trekking through a village is an adventure that gets every nature lover excited! Ride a Bullock cart which is Sri Lanka’s oldest form of transportation on an unpaved trail. Watch cooking and enjoy home cooked meal in the heart of the village.
