Sri Lanka

A tropical island enchanted with its natural beauty, Sri Lanka, also called the Pearl of Indian ocean carries down a very rich heritage for centuries. The island has many scenic locations which add much value to the country.  Beyond the coastal areas, towards the middle of the country, the lands are covered by admirable ranges of gigantic mountains. It is one of the biodiversity hotspots in the world with species which are endemic to the country.  A warm and cosy climate is seen throughout the year.

Sri Lanka is home for people with high diversity in culture, language and ethnicity. Sinhalese being the main ethnicity in Sri Lanka, people majorly follow Buddhism. The country is well known for the warmness and generosity of its people. It has been a very peaceful environment after an unsettling past.

Amidst the rapid developments throughout the country, Sri Lanka has preserved a countless number of breathtaking attractions with most of it aging back to ancient times.Few of them being Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura Ancient City, Dambulla and Yapahuwa.
