Holidays in Sri Lanka: An Adventurous Destination

Holidays in Sri Lanka: An Adventurous Destination

Sri Lanka is the most eye-catching destination for Asian tourist. For the richness of its natural resources and scenic beauty this country is called “The Perl of Indian Ocean”. This is why the tourists get attracted at the enhanced seashore for their beach holiday in the coastal areas. Some of the most famous beaches are Bentota, Hikkaduwa, Induruwa, Arugam Bay and more which will make your holiday memorable.

I’m very much exited to share the experiences of my journey in Sri Lanka.

Hikkaduwa and Bentota

Hikkaduwa is a Southern Province city in Sri Lanka. You’ll find wide range of colorful fish, golden sandy beaches and coral islands in here. Other Major sightseeing places are Moonstone mines, Tsunami photo museum, Hikkaduwa lake.

Another important checklist of your Sri Lanka trip is Bentota beach. You can have fabulous experiences of adventure sports like scuba diving, water-skiing, deep-sea fishing, paragliding, snorkeling and many more activities like this. The gleaming atmosphere of this beach will blow your mind if you take sea-bath for long time with your love ones.

Wild Life Experience

Wild life adventure is the most amazing and crazy part of this trip. There are so many national parks undertaken by their government who encourage tourist to see the natural activities of wild animals like elephant, leopard, rhino, wild bulls, several kind of deer feeding and fighting with each other.

Wilpattu, Yala, Minneriya are some of the largest park in Sri Lanka. You’ll have the opportunity to feel the nature from very close at the park obviously with safety and unbreakable protections. Seeing a leopard in Sri Lanka is a matter of your luck. They are only available on upper dry forest and they usually don’t like to appear among human crowd.

Minneriya National Park

This place is known as the get together point of fauna, flora and elephant. In Minneriya there are 24 species of mammals, 160 species of bird, 25 species of reptiles, 75 kinds of butterflies to capture your heart.

The purple-faced monkey and toque macaque is the main attraction among the tourist.

Their activities will make your visit more funny and unforgettable.

 Wilpattu National Park

This place is centered around “Willu” lake. You have to avail a Willpattu safari package with experienced jeep driver to enjoy the wild moments of elephant, leopard, birds and reptiles.

So, if you are planning for an adventurous trip then I’ll suggest you to visit Sri Lanka to make your trip more colorful and memorable.
