Why visit Sri Lanka?

Although it's small Sri Lanka has it all, so much in so little! From ancient sites, wildlife and beautiful scenery to bustling cities and endless beaches. Welcoming people and flavourful food. Sri Lanka has something for everyone.

Cultural Triangle

This region, the home of ancient Sinhalese royalty is loaded with ancient ruins and restored temples, a must visit when in Sri Lanka. The points of the triangle are marked by the island's three historic capitals - Kandy, Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. Within the area of this triangle lies the spectacular rock fortress of Sigiriya, the cave monastery of Dambulla and the Buddhist centre of Mihintale.

Wildlife and Safari

In Sri Lanka you can enjoy the most beautiful forest and wildlife experiences; visit Udawalawe, Minneriya or Yala National Park. Or go to Horton Plains: waterfalls and plains as far as you can see.


Another UNESCO World Heritage site in Sri Lanka: the Dutch Fort in Galle. The fort still preserves still much of its colonial atmosphere. Today it's also a buzzing cultural hotspot. Not far from the Fort are the beaches of Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna.

Experience Sri Lanka

Here are some things you should not miss when in Sri Lanka.

Train Ride

The train routes is Sri Lanka are some of the most beautiful in the world. The eastern route takes you from Kandy to Nanu Oya, through Sri Lankan tea country. The views on both side of the rail are breathtaking and the scenery changes throughout the trip.

Cycle Tour

Explore the countryside around Galle and pass lush green paddy fields, electric blue kingfishers, big black buffalo, inland lakes, tea hills, cinnamon fields and the ever smiling and vibrant local village life. Or visit the ancient cities of Polonnaruwa or Anuradhapura by bike.

Boat Trip

Embark on a boat trip down the lovely Madu river, a wetland estatuary. The Madu River is very rich in biodivesity. It’s a wonderful way to take a closer look at the complex ecosystem, one of the last wetlands in Sri Lanka to contain a mangrove forest.


This prominent rock offers amazing views of Sigiriya Lion Rock. It's a 20-minute hike tot the top past several temples and a reclining Buddha. Pidurangala is a much more adventurous climb over the Lions Rock but with only a quarter of the steps and without the crowds. The best time to climb Pidurangala Rock is either sunrise or sunset.

Hiking in Horton Plains

The ‘plains’ form a plateau of rises and fall over 2000m high, covered by wild grasslands and interspersed with patches of thick forest, rocky outcrops, waterfalls and lakes. The park is rich in biodiversity and many species found here are endemic to the region. The plateau’s sudden end is famously known as ‘World’s End’


The enigmatic remains of the Ritigala Monastery are tucked away on a mountain in the middle of a strict nature reserve. Difficult to reach and largely skipped by tourists, the archaeological site has 70 rock caves spread through the dense growth and it is believed that monks had been living secluded in this monastery since the first century BC.
