Ayubowan! This is a traditional greeting in Sri Lanka which translates into “may you live long”. Sri Lanka is a compact island with diverse offerings.

Spread across the north - central region of the island, Cultural Triangle area alone hosts four UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Dambulla; our tour covers three of these places. It is a great place to experience country life in Sri Lanka and witness the warm hospitality offered by their villagers. Sri Lanka has a variety of national parks offering great wildlife-viewing opportunities. Minneriya National Park is an excellent place in which to view wild Asian Elephants in their natural habitat while Wilpattu National Park is full of small, natural lakes or “Willu” with higher chances of spotting the elusive leopards.
The scenic beauty and the cooler temperatures are just a few reasons why people are drawn to the city of Kandy surrounded by hills. The city it is home to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of Buddha and the Royal Botanical Gardens. Colloquially known as a ‘city within a city’ Galle is famous for its Dutch Fort, cobbled streets, outdoor dining, and stylish stores. While at southern coast it is still the season to go whale and dolphin watching in the area of Mirissa and later on to capture the iconic stilt fishermen, an age old fishing method unique to Sri Lanka. The city of Colombo, is a blend of both historic value and modern vibes, dating back over 600 years. An ‘old Colombo city walk’ is great (alternative) way to explore the heart of the country’s capital city.
