Sri Lanka traveling, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is an island situated in South Asia, located in the Indian Ocean, the southwest of the Bay of Bengal & to the southeast of the Arabian Sea. “The Pearl of the Indian Ocean”, yes you can compare this.
Sri Lanka is located between latitudes 5°55′ and 9°51′ N and longitudes 79°41′ and 81°53′ E and has a maximum length of 268 miles (432 km) and a maximum width of 139 miles (224 km).
You might say this pearl has been hiding in plain sight. Most of the travelers have passed overhead on their way to some other destinations, but years of uncertainty kept Sri Lanka off many itineraries. Now all that has changed. The country is moving forward quickly, as more & more people discover its beauty. Lying between the more trodden parts of India & Southeast Asia. Sri Lanka’s history, culture & natural beauty are undeniably mysterious. It’s the place you haven’t been to yet, that you should.
Where is Sri Lanka
So Much in So Little Island
Sri Lanka’s 2000+ years of culture can be discovered at ancient sites, almost everywhere, few places have as many Unesco World Heritage Sites (eight) packed into such a small area. Legendary temples boast beautiful details even as they shelter in caves or perch on prominent peaks. More recent are evocative colonial fortresses, from Galle to Trincomalee & Colombo to Jaffna., Safari tours of Sri Lanka’s pleasantly relaxed national parks encounter leopards, water buffaloes, all manner of birds and a passel of primates.
The best part is you can reach plenty of mountain peaks to hike, cliffs to climb & plains to camp. It will make your journey unforgettable. In that case I am here to help you out….tadaa
