Custom Guided Tours for Travel to Sri Lanka
A Colonial Past Amidst Pure Nature
For astounding views, opt for the highlands of Nuwara Eliya and Ella, preferably in the spring; the climate in the hills of the Tea Plantations is one of the most pleasant in this region where the last traditions of the British colonial past still linger, ready to be experienced by all who travel here.
Ella is a small village high in the mountains and is surrounded by pure nature. Here you may enjoy a refreshing swim in one of the numerous waterfalls, or hike and wander through tea estates to experience numerous changing views.
All in all, the highland area of Sri Lanka is among the sweetest locations imaginable in which to enjoy springtime. Sri Lanka as a whole is wonderfully diverse region, with astounding nature views and a unique culture.
What to See
Sri Lanka is home to a number of ancient temples and ruins, all of which are a pleasure to visit. Make time to see the city ruins and rock fortress of Sigiriya, or discover the Temple of the Tooth, a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy. After that, see the temple complex of the Dambulla cave temple, which is home to an array of ancient art and historic and religious relics.
If you like hiking, don’t miss out on a trip to Adam’s Peak or the Udawatta Kele Sanctuary. Both are prime spots for hiking and nature viewing, with chances to see the native wildlife up close. If animals are what you long to see, the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is another wonderful experience. It serves as a sanctuary for both adult and baby elephants, to protect them from illegal poaching and hunting.
Towns, Spas & Gemstones
Get a glimpse of the daily life of Sri Lanka and head back down to Kandy and Colombo. While there, stop at the numerous herb and spice gardens and discover the Ayurvedic remedies. Visit the abundance of shops selling precious stones of the highest quality.
Be sure to take a day to go south and visit some of the most amazing beaches in the world including Unawatuna, a horseshoe shaped beach attached to one of Sri Lanka’s most enjoyable small villages. Hikkaduwa Beach is another favorite, reflecting the region’s sunny disposition with its pleasant climate and friendly locals.
Even a brief tour of Sri Lanka exquisitely satisfies the urge to travel and experience new worlds.
