It begins at a working coconut estate a few miles north of Colombo. Here you can try some delicious fresh coconut and explore nearby villages and relax by the idyllic swimming pool. After unwinding in the countryside, head towards the Cultural Triangle to see the legacy of ancient Sri Lankan civilisations. Then move down south to the cultural city of Kandy and explore its old colonial Garrison cemetery and see the famous tooth relic from Buddha at the Temple of the Tooth.
Journey up to the nearby hill country to explore tea plantations with their stunning views and lovely tea pluckers. Move west to Uda Walawe National Park and spot leopards and elephants on safari – in their natural habitat. Finally end your visit on the south coast for a well earned rest on the beach. Do note if you travel in the summer months you can see the famous Elephant Gathering in Minneriya National Park near the Cultural Triangle. This is when some 200 or more of these creatures gather around an ancient reservoir as water sources dwindle, it's the largest coming together of elephants in the world and an incredible sight to behold.
Remember, we can change activities and hotels throughout this holiday as it's simply a starting point. Contact us today to talk to one of our specialist consultants.There is no obligation to go any further than that, but we think you'll enjoy it.
