Marvellous Sri Lanka is the country of Theravada Buddhism followers, and also known as a “teardrop of India” in the world map. Being from India, the first thing which comes to my mind from my childhood memory is the Epic Ramayana Antoginst Ravana Island, and next is Asia’s most popular gentleman game, Cricket.
With time, I realized Sri Lanka is more than just a tiny island, which has its charm and offers plenty of joyful travel experiences. From shining beaches and unexplored wildlife to vast tea gardens, uniqueness of its cinnamon and thousand years’ old ruins on their soil, it has everything on its palate to offer! If you are an adventure enthusiast, then Sri Lanka is the place to be!
Travelling on this island will give you the lifetime satisfaction, which will linger on forever. The best part of the travelling here is the short distances between each destination, which gives you ample scope to explore more on your journey even if you are on a short holiday spree. And if you want to have the experience which can challenge your physique, you are at the right place to feel the thrill, and that’s Sri Lanka for you.
You may challenge the water magnificence in Sri Lanka through its water sports adventures such as surfing, windsurfing, white water rafting, scuba diving, kayaking, canoeing and snorkelling. The pristine beaches of Sri Lanka Island and the surrounding atmosphere near you make it one of the most desired location to enhance the water sports experience. If you are passionate for the sky heights, pump yourself for kite surfing, bungee jumping, zip-lining, paragliding and hot air balloon ride. If you are an explorer then the island awaits you for trekking, mountaineering, hiking, exploring, canyoneering, caving and rock climbing. These activities will give you goosebumps for sure. You can also gear up for mountain biking and cycling.
Taking wildlife safari is one of the best things that you can do here with your family. Sri Lanka’s national parks are home to various fauna such as Asian elephants, leopards, Sambhar and Purple-faced Languor, which can be easily spotted in the Yala National park. Wildlife safari lets you have an encounter with some cunning leopards.
Minneriya National Park ensures your encounter with elephants if you are a proud elephant watcher. This park estimated five hundred elephants in the vicinity. The safari trips can include your family members to experience the flora and fauna of Sri Lanka.
This tiny island is fast becoming one of the most popular destinations for travellers who are looking for a cost-effective adventures journey in Asia. The island completes a wide range of adventure sports and that’s the key to the success of this country.
