WE WELCOME YOU TO SRI LANKA: AYUBOWAN! Upon landing at Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo, you will be met by a tour representative. Then proceed to the Yala via Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. And spend the rest of the day in leisure.
Yala is Sri Lanka's most famous national park. Forming a total area of 1268 sq km of scrub, light forest, grassy plains and brackish lagoons, it's very rich in wildlife and you're virtually certain to encounter elephants, crocodiles, buffaloes and monkeys. Plan your trip carefully, however – such is Yala's appeal that the main tracks and viewing spots can be crowded.
One of the most popular national parks in the country, Yala National Park boasts a wide variety of animals, and does important work in conserving and growing populations. Running wild through the forests and grasslands, leopards are perhaps the biggest attraction of Yala National Park, although safaris also seek out populations of Sri Lankan elephants and endemic bird species, such as the Sri Lankan grey hornbill. Long coastal areas provide a habitat for many species of endangered sea turtle, as well as a large number of waterbirds. Yala National Park is in Sri Lanka.
The fishing town of Mirissa has developed into a notable tourist destination. Once known for its hauls of tuna, snapper, and butterfish, Mirissa's reputation today rests mainly on the scenic quality of its sandy coastline and its wealth of whale-watching spots. A set of squat buildings sit by the sand, including guesthouses, cafes, bars, and seafood restaurants, but Mirissa tourism does not yet feature the same number of large resorts and high-rise hotels found in other beach towns. Overall, Mirissa's limited development adds to its relaxing, paradisal atmosphere.
Tucked away beneath prodigious Sri Lanka palm tree groves, hidden from the main shore of Mirissa, you’ll find the area’s hush little locale: the appropriately-named “Secret Beach.”
The ever smiling, mischievous dolphins will put on a show while some of the oldest and the largest sea creatures, the humpback and the blue whales, will nonchalantly glide past you, when you embark on a whale/ dolphin watching excursion off the Southern, Eastern or the West coast of Sri Lanka. Be fortunate to see Blue Whales; the largest creatures on earth, Bryde’s Whales, Sperm Whales, Killer Whales and Fin Whales. You can also meet pods of friendly Dolphins such as the Common dolphins, Bottlenose dolphins, Spinner dolphins, Risso’s dolphins and striped dolphins as they playfully somersault and dance on the ocean waves. There’s also a good chance of seeing flying fish, turtle, manta rays and even sharks.
This peaceful, round shrine in the middle of the Sri Lankan jungle acts as a beacon of peace. Looking across the water from Galle Fort in Sri Lanka, this Buddhist shrine resembles a giant marshmallow rising out of the rainforest. Built with the help of Japanese monks, the peace pagoda on Rumasalla Hill is one of three Buddhist stupas in Sri Lanka. Stupas are monuments that serve as beacons of peace for people of all nationalities and creeds, and the clean, rounded design of the Unawatuna pagoda exemplifies this. Visitors can walk or drive the shaded path to the Peace Pagoda and they will be rewarded with a towering, white bell-like structure surrounded by gold-painted statues. Sets of steps also lead to a walkway encircling the shrine which offers a 360-degree view of the jungle and bay.
Galle is a jewel. A Unesco World Heritage Site, this historic city is a delight to explore on foot, an endlessly exotic old trading port blessed with imposing Dutch-colonial buildings, ancient mosques and churches, grand mansions and museums. Wandering its rambling lanes you'll pass stylish cafes, quirky boutiques and impeccably restored hotels owned by local and foreign artists, writers, photographers and designers. Built by the Dutch, beginning in 1663, Galle's core is the Fort, a walled enclave surrounded on three sides by the ocean. A key part of the Fort’s appeal is that it isn’t just a pretty place. Sure, tourism now dominates the local economy, but this unique city remains a working community: there are administrative offices and courts, export companies, schools and colleges.Most travellers are utterly seduced by Galle's ambience, and it's undoubtedly southern Sri Lanka's one unmissable sight.
Visit the World Heritage Site of Galle Fort, a historic 16th-century fortress noted for its well preserved walls and Dutch colonial architecture. Jutting out into the sea on the Bay of Galle, the fort was built in 1588 by Portuguese settlers, while the Dutch solidified it and populated its walls from the early 17th century until the British took over. Take a stroll along the narrow streets and alleys of the fortified city, admire the typical Dutch-style buildings, or take a guided tour to learn more about its history.
Enjoy a swim at Jungle Beach, a secluded stretch of sand with gentle, calm waters. To access the beach, you need to drive or hike up to the Peace Pagoda, then climb down the steps through the jungle vegetation, meaning the beach remains less crowded than its nearby counterparts. Pick a sunbed near the beach bar, sunbathe, and have a refreshing drink, or drift further away to a quieter, more deserted part of the beach for some rest and relaxation.
The coastal town of Bentota boasts a number of seaside attractions to draw in guests. The golden sands of the beach serve the large package hotels in the main town, although some quieter spots can be found further along the coast. Turtle hatcheries also serve as a major attraction of Bentota, with different institutions doing good work to manage the population levels throughout the year. Known as a center of Chaplon tea production, the plantations and old estates here date back to the British colonial era, and bare the hallmarks of colonial British design.
Kosgoda is famous for its turtle hatchery operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1981 to protect Sri Lanka's turtles from extinction. The hatcheries pay fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the long sandy beach. Visitors are shown the huge tanks filled with new born but lively hatchlings. After being fed the hatchlings are taken to the sea and released when they are 2 -4 days old. They are not always released during the safer hours of darkness. Although October to April is the main laying season, some eggs can be found at Kosgoda throughout the year.
River Boat Fishing – 915 -hectare Madu Ganga Estuary is connected by two narrow channels to the Randombe Lake, forming a complex wetland system encompassing 64 mangrove islets. In the year 2000, International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) undertook a detailed biodiversity survey of the region & revealed the existence of no less than 10 major wetland vegetati on types supporting over 300 plant species & 248 species of vertebrates
The commercial capital of the country, Colombo has added modern touches to its colonial-era core, creating an exciting and eclectic coastal city. Sightseeing in Colombo takes in the colonial British buildings dotted across town, as well as the towering skyscrapers in the business districts, and the modern developments along the waterfront. The older quarters offer interesting antique shops and eateries, a number of public parks and gardens harking back to the city's colonial past, and new shopping districts that house a number of stylish restaurants, cafes, and malls. Colombo is in Western Province.
This evening, engage in a personalized walk through the city of Colombo, accompanied by a historian where you can experience firsthand the borrowed words from the Portuguese to the amazing architecture the Dutch/English left behind, see the vision and love the Englishman had for this land - all while learning and experiencing what being "Sri Lankan" is all about. The walks are generally 2-3 hours and are conducted in the evening-time allowing the body to battle the humidity levels and experience the wind-down time of Island culture. With this personalized walk, we guarantee to engage your senses and set it all a-buzz as you will experience (safe) local food and beverage.
Afterwards head towards Bandaranaike International Airport as for flight schedule, for your Departure in time to catch your flight. END OF THE TOUR IN SRI LANKA WITH A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES AND MEMORIES!
