Sri Lanka Can Spice Up Your Life

January 9, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Historians agree that Sri Lanka is the cradle of the ancient spice trade. The history of Sri Lanka and the history of spices are interwoven to the extent that it leaves one to wonder whether Sri Lanka was discovered because of spice, or whether spice was discovered because of Sri Lanka!

Khiri Travel Sri Lanka has organized a visit to a spice garden in Matale to see the many different types of spices for which Sri Lanka is famous. Just 25 km from the hill town of Kandy, the Matale spice gardens are among the best on the island. Visitors will be introduced to different spices and shown how some of these spices are cultivated and processed. In the shade of the jungle canopy, clients will harvest several types of Sri Lankan spices before taking a turn at cooking some delicious Sri Lankan food with them.
