You want some adventure. This trip around Sri Lanka that focuses on food is excellent. Learn to cook Sinhala at a local home in Kandy, partake in a Tamil family supper in Haputale, see the fish market in Negombo, and watch a culinary demonstration with a fisherman’s family in Mirissa. By the seashore, take it easy; in the highlands, cool off; and in the bustling city, meander. When you’re not busy eating, you’ll tour Sri Lanka’s rich cultural heritage, including its ornate temples, historic fortifications, and rural areas teeming with animals. What are you still holding out for? Sri Lankan diet has a lot of meat and seafood. A wide range of dietary needs can be met on several of our other tours to Sri Lanka. During our trip, we visit several temples, which calls for a certain amount of modesty. Please wear clothing with sleeves and slacks or skirts that cover the knees. When it’s hot outside, covering your arms and shoulders with a lightweight scarf is a wonderful option. Although Sri Lanka’s equatorial location ensures rather consistent temperatures throughout the year, the summer months there are extremely hot with brief, severe monsoons in the south-west of the nation. Use appropriate sun protection, and sip a lot of water. Sigiriya’s Rock Fortress, also known as Lion Rock, is magnificent. But people who are afraid of heights or perhaps hate them. The rock requires climbing many uneven, cramped steps and pathways in order to be scaled. We visit Udawalawe National Park in September and October, when Yala National Park is annually closed for infrastructure building and revitalization. Yala National Park is a stunning but well-liked tourist destination. When there are lots of visitors, we’ll adjust our plans to include a stop to Udawalawe National Park. This is done to lessen our negative effects on the environment and wildlife. For more information, please refer to the itinerary.
