Sri Lanka Index




  
Combining pristine jungle, palm-fringed beaches and an incredible array of wildlife in one small package, Sri Lanka offers the perfect introduction to the Indian Subcontinent.

The Indians, Portuguese, Dutch and British have all left their marks here, making for a delightful mix of historic architecture. The romantic remains of lost cities lie scattered across the country: some preserved as attractions; others forgotten in the depths of the jungle. In the Hill Country, the former centre of British occupation, colonial-era trains still wind their way through tea plantations and lush paddy fields.   In contrast, Colombo is a thriving modern capital - fast-paced, forward thinking and bursting with boutiques, bars and nightclubs.


One of Sri Lanka's greatest boasts is its biological diversity. Monkeys, leopards and thousands of colourful bird species enliven the central jungles, while the coastlines of the south are a haven for egg-laying turtles. Blue whales, sperm whales, flying fish and dolphins live in the seas around Dondra Head, and giant flocks of pink flamingos gather in the wetlands of Bundala National Park.

But the biggest highlight for most tourists is the elephants. See them wild in Yala National Park, or visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage to feed tiny newborn babies.
