Picnics are a great way to spend a day out. The Mudhouse is surrounded by hundreds of lakes which are linked together as part of an ancient irrigation system that functions to this day. In drier times of year the lakes at The Mudhouse sometimes dry up, making it necessary to travel a bit to find places to swim, kayak, rest, eat and enjoy.

Picnics can be arranged with travel by bike, motorbike, tuk-tuk, tractor or vehicle, depending on far we need to go. Kayaks, hammocks, mats, cushions and picnic kits will be transported to ensure maximum comfort and pleasure at the various beauty spots.

Some lakes have interesting fishing communities where we can learn there trade and have a go. Major lakes, such as Inginimitiya, Uswewa & Kottukachchiya are vast in the first half of the year.

There is no need to pre-plan excursions like this – these are easily arranged when  you are here and are included in the price.
