The Wanniya Letto or "Forest Being"

The Wanniya Lett or "Vedda" as they are more commonly known have lived in the same way for centuries however as the population of Sri Lanka increases and tourism also, the Vedda are being pegged back and the light that rightfully belongs to them is being turned into National parks and other tourist attractions.......... To read about our expedition and see the photos go to www.geographic-expeditions.com

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Staying with the Vedda meant I had the chance to witness a free-flowing existance unburdened by the restaraint of technological Hype
  • Cons:I couldn't say the same about the rest of the Sri Lankan community
  • In a nutshell:A life changing experience.
