01. Climb Sigiriya
Climb Sigiriya is Sri Lanka’s Seven World Heritage Sites, this rock-top fortress dates back to the 5th century AD. The atmosphere is more spiritual than militant: in its time it has served as an imperial palace and also Buddhist monastery.
The site is also regarded as among one of the most vital urban planning jobs of the initial millennium, as well as is residence to some of the earliest designed yards on the planet. Lookout as well for the mirror wall, a masonry wall that was so well-polished that the king could see his reflection in it.
02. Get up-close with elephants
You’ll see elephants almost everywhere you enter in Sri Lanka: working on a tea plantation, running wild in national parks, as well as leading the Esala Peraha parade in Kandy in all their bejeweled and sequined glory.
Uda Walawe National park offers you your ideal opportunity of seeing elephants wandering free. Created to protect the landmark of the enormous Uda Walawe Tank, this park is home to around 400 pachyderms and has extensive stretches of meadow along with scrub jungle as well as riverine woodland. It is one of the best places to visit bird watching in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is a beginner surfer’s paradise. Hikkaduwa on Sri Lanka’s southwest coastline is the preferred place where we attempted surfing. The sandy break cushions your fall, as well as the waves, are not the gigantic intimidating pipes seen in Hawaii or Australia. Also, specialist surfers can enjoy themselves in Sri Lanka though.
04. Whale Watching at Marissa Fishery Port
Be a part of the amazing whale viewing cruise ship from Galle to Mirissa fishery port. Dondra Point which is close to Mirissa is the bottom line to see heaven as well as sperm whales you can witness Blue Whale, Bryde’s Whale, Killer Whale, and Pilot Whale. Whale viewing is among the best things to do in Sri Lanka.
