Sri Lanka is a land like no other with fascinating biodiversity, high and low altitudes, and scenic views that capture your heart. There is no end to the exciting experiences you can gain travelling each part of the island. Here are three of the most unique experiences to make your stay a memorable one on the island.
Safari at Yala
Among all the things to do in Sri Lanka, taking a safari in Yala National Park can be one of the most exciting while you explore the wilderness. Elephants, leopards, exotic birds and crocodiles in their natural habitats will wander free while you can observe, explore, and capture these wild animals on your reels. You can take lodging at Cinnamon Wild Yala, one of the best Cinnamon Hotels & Resorts on the island.
Also known as the Lion’s Rock, this ancient rock fortress is worth a visit during your stay in Sri Lanka. The architectural excellence you see here is uncanny, and the ruins of the palace, ponds, fountains, and traces of elevators shed light on the extravagance of the era. Sigiriya frescoes are another must-see, beautifully painted by the artists of the ancient world.
Visit a Tea Factory in Nuwara Eliya
Home to the best tea in the world, Sri Lanka’s tea plantations are a fascinating sight to the eyes. Amidst the plantations spreading across acres, you will find tea factories still running busy with old machinery that is used to extract the essence of the tea leaf. You can purchase a few tea-based items for yourself to take home as gifts or for personal use.
