Walking Trail of Sri Lanka

15 Nights & 16 Days


This two weeks trip is one of the most comprehensive ways of doing Sri Lanka. There is little that the itinerary leaves out. The best part is that you get to see this paced out, as there are ample sections on foot. The hikes to places like Adam’s Peak, Horton Plains and Sigiriya add a new dimension to the trip. The last few days are spent in the tropical sun, unwinding on the beach. This trip touches, heritage and nature, both.
