A group of women are following a training course to guide tourists who visit the Dumbara forest range. This is the first time in Sri Lanka that women of Dumbara are going to guide tourists.

A high number of local and foreign tourists visit the area daily. Therefore, the Forest Conservation Department carried out a counselling service for the tourist on December 12 and 13 at its Dumbara Office.
