Camping in Sri Lanka

Our advice:
In Sri Lanka never take your camping spot near to elephant's wandering routes Recently two locals were attacked by wild elephants while they were sleeping in the make shift camp in a elephant wandering area. Find a good place from a company or from experienced plot owner to erect your camp. Otherwise there are people who will claim that lands belong to them and will ask you to pay money for them. Most of the bare lands don't have sewage facility or good drinking water. Also take care of your belongings and of your health. Mineral waters are available in 20 Lt, 5Lt and 1Lt plastic bottles. 20 Lt Bottle is a refill one and returns and get a new bottle with water from the nearest store. Super market offers ice cube packs for sale.
