SRI LANKA: 16 days exploring its cultural heritage, biodiversity & tropical beauty [Land only]
Sri Lanka has often been described as a tropical paradise. Its natural beauty has led the country to be referred to as 'The Pearl of the Indian Ocean'. Sri Lanka is home to one of the oldest civilisations in the world and boasts no less than eight UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Its history is on display in the Cultural Triangle including the ancient sites of Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya and Kandy. Despite its small size, Sri Lanka is rated as one of the top five biodiversity hotspots in the world, with leopards, Asian elephants, sambar deer and wild buffaloes drawing the most attention in the country’s many national parks and sanctuaries. Yet it is the more than 400 species of birds that are the glory of Sri Lanka’s wildlife. The unique mix of tropical beauty, ancient heritage and biodiversity makes Sri Lanka a delightful destination to visit.
