Sri Lanka – The Land Of Serendipity
Sri Lanka offers visitors a range of unique encounters. Everything from ancient sites filled with history, to unspoiled wildlife and scenery. Sri Lanka is also home to a number of vibrant festivals and outdoor activities. One of the best ways to see this scenic country is by railway. Book a train trip through the hillish countryside – all the while coming across must-see destinations like Hatton, Nuwara Eliya and Kandy. Along the way also expect to pass green tea plantations, remote villages and vast mountain ranges. If you’re feeling fit, try your hand at climbing Sigiriya Lion Rock. Built more than 1600 years ago, this UNESCO World heritage site is arguably the most well known monument in Sri Lanka – giving you astonishing panoramic views at the summit. If you’re a lover of wildlife, you can’t miss the largest gathering of Elephants (over 300) at one time in Asia. This staggering event takes place at Minneriya National Park every year between July and October. Finally, if you need to recover from all the sightseeing, indulge in Sri Lanka’s famous Ayurvedic treatment. Based on the ancient wisdom of good living, this treatment includes yoga, meditation, herbal baths, dietary advice, massage and more.
