Sigiriya Rock

If you’re looking for a quick hike that will give you a great view into the history of the country, Sigiriya Rock should be your first stop. The site features the ruins of a grand palace, where you can see some ancient wall paintings and other breath-taking features that will give you a unique insight into the country’s formative years. There’s also a quiet Buddist monastery nearby, which will give you a great view of the Rock you just hiked.

Journey from Nuwara Eliya to Ella

This breath-taking train trip is hailed by many as one of the best train trips you can expect to take in your life. Offering 180 degree views of the stunning Sri Lankan hillside country, waterfalls, tea plantations and villages, the train trip offers you a great way to experience Sri Lanka few others can compete with.

Looking for something more relaxed? The beach town of Mirissa will provide you with some of the beach experiences you can hope to get in the country. Apart from just getting your chill on at the beach, you can also go surfing off the point or grab some snorkel gear and head into the water to catch a glimpse of the aquatic life.

Uda Walawe National Park

Found on the southern end of the island, the Uda Walwa National Park offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the wildlife of the South Sea, which includes buffalo, elephants, crocodiles, eagles, hawks, and if you are someone that can bank on your luck, a leopard or two.

These are just some of the awesome experiences you can expect from a visit to Sri Lanka. If you want to find out more about exploring one of the hottest destinations in the South Sea check out the tour from One Life Adventures.
