Termed as “Thaprobana” or “The Pearl of the Indian Ocean” formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka, being an island nation, has never ending variety to offer for someone visiting it for the first time or the hundredth time! In the tropical belt just above the equator in the great Indian Ocean lies a tiny pearl that lets you experience four ecological zones from lush rainforests to semi arid climates right from the golden sandy beaches to the heights of over 8,000 feet nestled in tranquil and picturesque mist-laden hills where time stands still. A journey through the bustling streets in cities to winding narrow lanes in the hills through thick fog will let you flavor busy modern city life to traditional peaceful villages, historical ancient cities to revered religious places, tiny streams to rivers snaking through mountains, lush village greenery to sprawling rainforests and adventurous wild life, multiethnic and multi-religious culture to colonial heritage, within a surprisingly a short period of time. It is also the home to EIGHT beautiful places listed by UNESCO as Heritage Sites and world famous ‘Blue Train ride’ in the mountains of Ella with breathtaking views which was crowned as the Best Place to Visit by the Lonely Planet in 2019.
