With over two decades of tourism experience from tour planning to tour guiding, Udaya’s approach to travel is unmatchable. He’s all about experiential tourism, offering simple local experiences that highlight the human aspects of travelling. As a true pioneer, Udaya not only co-organised the first-ever para-gliding event in Sri Lanka (2005/06), the first Tuk-Tuk Challenge (2009/10), and “The Wild Elephant Trail”—the 210 km multi-day stage run in March 2015/16. He had been passionate about hiking for many years and decided to follow his gut reaction. He has travelled extensively in Asia and Europe. Hailing from Kandy, he currently lives with his wife Isabelle in Kotte.


Born in France, bred in Sri Lanka and understands both cultures like no one else! After completing his IGCSE A/L he moved to France, from where he holds an MA in Digital Communication.
He has travelled through Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Peru. Syl is a keen outdoor and photography enthusiast, who loves nothing better than exploring new vistas in tourism. Currently, he lives in Paris. Our Pastis and Curry chap will ensure you travel differently in Sri Lanka and capture unique moments.
