Holidays in SRILANKA

Feb 21,2021

SRILANKA

Package Information

Sri Lanka is known as 'Teardrop Island' due to its shape. It is divided into nine provinces: Central Province with Kandy at its core, also known as the Hill Country. 

Package Highlights

The most glimmering Sri Lanka highlights are the ancient archaeological wonders of the Golden Triangle. People panic about which ones are the best to see. But they shouldn’t. They are all amazing. You just need to go with the right frame of mind and go Zen about it all. Going Zen when hiking or biking in the national parks is also a great way to go in Sri Lanka. And when you hit the coasts, particularly the undeveloped North East, inner peace just happens.

Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage

Set amongst the verdant hills of Kegalle is a unique orphanage, where the tiny tots weigh 60 kg or more. This is the Pinnewela Elephant Orphanage, the world's first and only elephant orphanage established to feed, nurse and house young elephants lost or abandoned by their mothers. Other occupants are elephants displaced from their natural environs by development projects or those found wounded. Visitors could see the baby elephants being fed milk from gigantic feeding bottles or bathed in the river which flows nearby – an unforgettable sight! Established in 1975, by the Wildlife Department and National Zoological gardens which subsequently led to a breeding programme through which more than twenty five elephants have been born since1984.
