Do this tour if you want to follow the tracks of cinnamon.
Cinnamon is a major export product of Sri Lanka and its use in both cooking and medicine are increasingly appreciated.
Spending your holiday at Villa Cookie Aunt or Happy Man Village will give you a special insight into this little known crop because we have it right here in the neighborhood.
Our family provides a tour of the plantation and demonstrations of cinnamon peeling. And if you wish and you are lucky you can also help them out for as long as you want to.
You can experience both the harvesting and the production of cinnamon, which is fun and very interesting! Alone the smell of the peeled cinnamon trees is like a dream. Also, you can try a little bit of the fresh crust which we really recommend.
WHAT to discover
Still peeled in the time-honoured way by our own peelers. Here you can find out how much work is behind the production of cinnamon sticks and all the other cinnamon products.
