Itinerary

ARRIVAL

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 Sacred City

PINNAWALA ELEPHANT ORPHANAGE

Visit Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage and witness the daily life of its pachyderm residents. Meet the rescued or abandoned elephants of all ages, see them play and bathe in the river, and watch the youngest of the herd being bottle-fed. You can help wash an elephant, feed them their daily fruit portions, or take photos with them, but a tip for their carer will probably be expected. The main attraction in Pinnawala is undoubtedly its elephant orphanage. Once a remote set of coconut plantations, the orphanage has changed the look and purpose of this small village, where an abundance of fresh water from the rivers helps create an ideal habitat for the nearly 100 elephants that call this place home. Visitors can observing the daily routine in the sanctuary, with the elephants congregating in the river to bathe and play, and staff members bottle-feeding the elephant calves reared on site.

KANDY

Some days Kandy’s skies seem perpetually bruised, with stubborn mist clinging to the hills surrounding the city’s beautiful centerpiece lake. Delicate hill-country breezes impel the mist to gently part, revealing colorful houses amid Kandy’s improbable forested halo. In the center of town, three-wheelers careen around slippery corners, raising a soft spray that threatens the silk saris worn by local women. Here’s a city that looks good even when it’s raining. And when the drizzle subsides, cobalt-blue skies reveal a city of imposing colonial-era and Kandyan architecture, none more impressive than the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, one of Buddhism's most sacred shrines. History and culture are on tap. Yes, the city is renowned for the great Kandy Esala Perahera festival (held annually in July/August), but its vibrant cultural life and attractions more than justify a visit at any time of year.

TEMPLE OF SACRED TOOTH

Kandy city is famed for its many sacred Buddhist sites and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth is a highlight. The temple is most likely to be at the top of everyone’s list of things to do in Kandy. The golden-roofed temple houses Sri Lanka’s most important Buddhist relic – a tooth of the Buddha!

NUWARA ELIYA – LITTLE ENGLAND

Sitting high up in the hills, the green and pleasant Nuwara Eliya offers both a rich history and proximity to pristine natural areas. Founded by a British explorer in the 19th century, the fledgling tea plantation town became popular with British growers and administrators thanks to its temperate climate. Well preserved and atmospheric, old colonial buildings and plantations provide a charming backdrop for tours of Nuwara Eliya. Most domestic tourists arrive during April to celebrate the Sinhalese and Tamil New Year. During that time, the ambience in town completely changes as crowds pack in and party in the old colonial hotels and in the main square.

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.
