Sri Lanka has a bounty of natural wealth and the island is one of the top ten biodiversity hotspots in the world. Pristine unspoiled beaches, thousands of years of old historical sites, gigantic ancient man-made reservoirs, primeval rainforest, the richness of wildlife, and delicious Asian cuisines are a few fascinating things that shock you.
If you’re a nature lover, then a Sri Lanka vacation is a compensating experience.
Sri Lanka is the stomping ground for over 5,800 wild elephants and is home to the leopard. It also has one of the highest rates of biological endemism (i.e. plants and animals unique to the country) in the world.
So not only do you have the priceless opportunity to take a Sri Lanka safari, you are likely to see plants and blossoms you will not see anywhere else in the world.
This tiny island is 65610 sq km in extent and shows a fascinating variation of landscapes and natural resources across the island. In the center of the country is the mountain that rises to 2500 meters from the sea level while the elevation gradually sinks in the surrounding area to zero near the ocean.
The hill country of Sri Lanka is one of the best places to experience awe-inspiring mountain scenery and breathtaking geography along with other interesting natural attractions.
The travelers also have the opportunity to engage in water-related sports such as whitewater rafting, diving, snorkeling, canoeing, kayaking, deep-sea fishing, and whale watching due to the abundance of inland water resources such as rivers, canals, tanks reservoirs, and the warm Indian Ocean around Sri Lanka.
If you love to have more extreme adventure sports such as rock climbing, paragliding, mountaineering, you are well on the way to accomplish your target in Sri Lanka.
Also, Sinharaja rain forest, knuckles mountain, and KDN are ideal places for people who look for less adventurous engagements such as trekking, walking, and medium difficulty mountaineering.
