Crate Adventure Park is one of a kind in Sri Lanka. With acres of land in sight, surrounded by mountains and lush-greenery, this place boastfully displays it’s Nature-bound environment. With a basic office premise upon arrival, the setup is quite minimal.
A training on riding the ATV’s are provided by the experts at the Adventure Park for all participants. It’s easy, just like a bike, with the acceleration and brakes in clear sight. After a trial drive, you get the feel of it and the total control of the ATV.
As a warm-up to settle in to the adventure, we had a hike up to the nearby mountains. The trail is very natural, through the jungle and the bushes. The sights that you pass on this hike are quite beautiful and breathless.
The ATV ride is the main attraction here at Crate Adventure Park. With a thrilling experience, these ATV’s became an obsession actually. The ATV ride through the mud-tracks, off the rocks (quite safe) and also the narrow paths in the jungle are literally the best 30 minutes of the day.
