What you can expect

Escape into a tranquil, 200 acre cinnamon plantation and forest hidden in Hikkaduwa. Nestled within the acres of warm trees is the quiet, 65 year old Ralahami Bungalow where your extraordinary cinnamon journey is about to begin. But first, sit back and enjoy a freshly brewed cup of cinnamon tea on the porch surrounding the forest, while your host gives you a first introduction into the world of cinnamon.

Afterwards, walk through the valleys of the cinnamon plantation and forest and experience a burst of fragrances as a cinnamon tree is harvested freshly for you, right where you’re standing! Hoist the tree over your shoulder and take it to our workshop for an interactive class on cinnamon peeling, extraction, curling and finishing. Along with crafting a fresh cinnamon quill, go ahead and taste real Ceylon Cinnamon at different stages before being fully dried – from the earthier wet bark shavings, to the semi-dried sweeter ones.

When your curiosity about the history of cinnamon reaches its peak, step into our time machine which takes you to the 1800s. From photographs taken centuries ago to ancient tools which harvested cinnamon from the days of yore, your cinnamon museum tour brings history to life!
