Sri Lanka, which spans over 65,600 square kilometers, is the 25th largest island country in the world. Located in the Indian ocean, the country has a diverse landscape filled with dense jungles, steep mountains, and sandy beaches. Because of the rarity of flora and fauna, it is estimated that about 13% of the land surface is declared as a wildlife protected area (WLPA). Many jungle reserves like the Yala National park, Sinharaja Forest Reserve, Udawalawe National Park, Wilpattu National park and so on were established to preserve the wildlife in the country. The parks are open for safari and trekking trips. Tourists really enjoy such expeditions and hence they form the best part of Sri Lanka tour.

Sri Lanka has a long and rich history; the first reference of which is seen in Indian Epic Ramayana. Buddhism flourished in the country from 250 BC and many temples and monasteries were established throughout the land. The Anuradhapura period (377 BC – 1017AD) was the golden age of artists and sculptures who created astounding statues, temples, and palaces by carving into stone. There are still many monuments in Sri Lanka that are reminiscent of the era.
