About the neighbourhood
If you tire of just “chilling” at Far Cry the region around Habarana and Far Cry offers many attractions. The more energetic could make excursions to the ancient monastic complex of Ritigala , the Minneriya and Kaudulla National parks for elephant and bird watching, The Sigiriya Rock, The Dambulla Cave Temple , the Ruined Cities of Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, or even the old Port City of Trincomalee. There are many other places of historical and natural interest in the Cultural Triangle within easy reach.

Vehicles can be booked In advance for transfers or local excursions. Transfers can be arranged by tuk tuk or minivan - pricing can be provided on request. A tuk tuk ride to Habarana (9km) costs approximately US$ 5.00 each way, while for larger groups, a local jeep can be called up for US$ 12.00 approximately each way.
