Sri Lanka, renowned for its preserved landscapes and temples, is sure to soothe you during your stay.
Sri Lanka is an island located 31 kilometers southwest of India in the Indian Ocean. Sri Lanka has a varied landscape, with a mountainous center, beautiful beaches, national parks, and numerous temples. The cultural triangle between the UNESCO World Heritage cities of Kandy, Anuradhapura, and Polonnaruwa will take you on a journey of history and culture through the centuries. North of Kandy in the town of Dambulla, the Golden Temple with its five shrines is the largest religious complex in the country. You can discover the richness of the wildlife by visiting many national parks, including Yala Park in the southwest, which offers an unlikely encounter with wild animals. To enhance your trip with water activities or seaside walks, the south-western coast of the country is renowned for its beaches, notably Hikkaduwa and Mirissa for surfing spots, as well as Bentota and Unawatuna for its stretches of white sand. For diving enthusiasts, be sure to visit Kalpitiya in the northwest, home to coral reefs, and Trincomalee on the east coast for massive wrecks, the most famous of which is the British Sergeant tanker. Discover the town of Ella and its surroundings with its tea plantations, Ella Rock, and the Nine-Arched Bridge.
