“HISTORICALLY, A Sri Lankan VILLAGE has three basic elements: a temple for spiritual guidance, a paddy field for nutrition and a lake to sustain the paddy field. We want our travelers to gain a deeper understanding of these concepts,” says Dilanke Panagoda, head of business development at experiential tour company Pepper. A series of new journeys includes the opportunity to experience life as a villager, sleeping in a mud hut with no electricity, taking a dip in the lake and enjoying meals sourced from the surrounding gardens.
