Do you want to give up all your work deadlines and travel to a country away from all the maddening rush? Do you want to laze in a hammock? Do you want to get rid of all your anxiety? Then Sri Lanka Trip is your ultimate therapist.
With its pristine beaches, mosaic landscapes and picturesque terrain, Sri Lanka has a lot to offer. So pack your virtual bags and let’s travel through the best travel destinations in Sri Lanka.
You might say Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. Scores of travelers have passed overhead on their way to someplace else, but years of uncertainty kept Sri Lanka off many itineraries.
Now, however, all that has changed. The country is moving forward quickly as more and more people discover its myriad charms. Lying between the more trodden parts of India and Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka’s history, culture and natural beauty are undeniably alluring. It’s the place you haven’t been to yet, that you should.
Few places have as many Unesco World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Sri Lanka’s 2000-plus years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites where legendary temples boast beautiful details even as they shelter in caves or perch on prominent peaks. More recent are colonial fortresses, from Galle to Trincomalee.
Across the island, that thing that goes bump in the night might be an elephant heading to a favorite waterhole. Safari tours of Sri Lanka’s pleasantly relaxed national parks encounter leopards, water buffaloes, all manner of birds and a passel of primates.
Sri Lanka is home to more than 2,000 years of religious heritage and the longest continuous history of Buddhism of any Buddhist nation. About 75 percent of the population is Buddhist and the statues of Buddha here are quite astonishing.
Seeing Sri Lanka’s captivating landscape from above is sure to be an unforgettable experience and among the highlights of your trip. Just try to imagine floating serenely across misty mountains and jungles as the sun comes up.
Wildlife lovers will see leopards at the safari park in Sri Lanka. Bird watchers can also spot more than 90 species of birds such as waterfowl, cormorants, large waterfowl, pelicans and flamingos that call the park’s wetlands home.
