Things to do in Sri Lanka


Marco Polo’s impression of Sri Lanka was that “This is the finest island in all the world.”

Sri Lanka is a very diverse island.  You can discover Buddhist Temples, jungles, beaches, ancient ruins, mountains, lakes, tea plantations, animal preserves, and many other cultural and natural sites.  From AshtangaLanka we can arrange individual and group outings.

Some options:

  • Day trip to Kandy and see famous sites including the "Temple of the Tooth" and the Botanical Garden.

     

  • Day Trip to Sigiriya.   A UNESCO World Heritage site.
  • Day hikes with our in-house naturalist guide Aravinda.  He will take you on walks of any length and show you lots of things about the ecology of this area.  You can leave directly from the estate and walk for 1 to 10 hours.
