Thalakote Wewe

This ancient tank is located having the ancient Sigriya Rock Fortress and the Pidurangala Monastery Rock as the back drop. It provides a life line of water to many villagers in the area to cultivate their crops. Paddy / Onions and other varieties of vegetables are grown providing water from this tank.

 
You can see many Tree houses, a semi permanent tall structures constructed by wood where farmers spend the night time. They take terns to be up during the night to have an eye on their crops which are easy edible targets for wild elephants and other animals. Keeping the "camp fire" alive is also an important duty!


We will be even visiting typical village house and have a meal interacting with them.

Chaina Cultivation [slash & burn farming]This a very primitive agricultural method where farmers slash and burn jungle patches for cultivation of short term crops. They mainly depend on rain water and there will not be any major field preparations. Farmers usually rotate between 2 to 3 land plots.
