Habarana sits just north of Sigiriya it’s here where you’ll enjoy your short, but thrilling elephant ride which takes you a through typical Sri Lankan villages and tropical jungle, home to a magnificent collection of flora and fauna. The elephant will wade through the marshes and will even get down to a level where even your feet touch the water. On the way back the mahout (the elephant’s owner and driver) will give you the opportunity to climb over the railings of the howdah and on to the neck of the elephant, which is a wonderful and natural experience. The ride normally lasts for approximately one hour.
