Whether you choose to explore Sri Lanka on foot or on two wheels, it is a country that possesses great beauty. From the pristine beaches to the excellent wildlife spotting opportunities, there are so many reasons to visit this Indian Ocean paradise.
The far north is home to largely unexplored regions, where ancient ruins and religious sites can be found. The landscapes in this part of the island are as wild as the ponies that roam the plains, resulting in an authentic adventure that opens your eyes to the real Sri Lanka. Further south, you will follow more travelled routes to highlights such as the town of Kandy and the dramatic rock fortress of Sigiriya. Kandy, a photogenic settlement on the shores of Bogambara Lake, is famous for its Temple of the Tooth, which is a pilgrimage site for Buddhists all over the world.
The wild landscapes and national parks of Sri Lanka also present their own highlights. Not only is the country one of the largest producers of tea, it also gives explorers the opportunity to see endangered animals like the Sri Lankan leopard and the sloth bear.
