king, Parakrama Bahu (1153 - 1186) who symbolizes both the rebirth of Sinhalese civilization born in Anuradhapura and its last fires. See the royal palace, the Temple of Shiva, and the group of Buddhist temples with the Vatadage (the circular chamber of relics), the rock site of Gal Viharae and its three statues of Buddha.

(Optional: explore the site by bike, 5.00 EUR per person)

 

Leave for Medirigiriya, a site dating from the second century and little known to tourists. This place is remarkable for its vatadage, which evokes that of Polonnaruwa. It has carved pillars (68 in total), a stone balustrade, and Buddhas meditating surrounding the dome. Nearby, you can see the remains of an old hospital.

Leave for Dambulla, where you’ll see the largest wholesale fruit and vegetable market in Sri Lanka, with produce harvested from across the country.

 

Continue to Matalae, where you’ll go to a spice garden at the gates of the old capital Kandy. Long before the tea plantations were cultivated, Sri Lanka was renowned for its spices, and you’ll learn all about them during your tour.

Visit a tea plantation and factory, where you’ll learn about the different processes in making tea.

 

Arrival in Nuwara Eliya, the former summer residence of the British governor, located at an altitude of 1900 meters. Thanks to its misty climate, Victorian villas, and rose gardens, it seems like England! Take a tour around the city and explore.

DAY 5: NUWARA ELIYA - ELLA - WELLAWAYA - UDAWALAWE NATIONAL PARK

There are normally between 40 and 60 orphaned elephants roaming and playing. Human contact is reduced to a minimum in order to maximize their chances of survival when they return to the wild.

 

Continue to Tissamaharama and settle into your hotel. In the afternoon, visit Yala National Park. It houses one of the densest leopard populations in the world, but due to their dwindling numbers, there are only fifty in this region. Yala is also home to elephants, sloth bears, sambar deer and spotted deer, wild boar, crocodiles, monkeys and buffaloes, as well as a wide variety of different birds.

Your Destination

Sri Lanka

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found on such a small area of land and a 2,000 year old culture, Sri Lanka is as fascinating as it is beautiful. A destination that is often skipped by many a traveller on their trips to India or Asia, Sri Lanka remains one of the Indo-Asian best kept secrets. Visit its ancient sites and marvel over its legendary temples, or see the sacred home of the world’s oldest living tree, Anuradhapura.

 

Take a tour in one of Sri Lanka’s national parks to encounter elephants, leopards, water buffaloes, and exotic birds, or spend the day relaxing on the dazzlingly white, often untrod, beaches. Try your hand at a little surfing or retreat up into the Sri Lankan hills to experience a more temperate climate and the lavish greenery of the tea plantations. In addition, you can even trek through the rainforests with an experienced guide or just take in the breathtaking vistas on a spectacular train ride. With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations, where the charm of the people will simply enchant you.
