05 Amazing Travel Adventures in Sri Lanka – Awesome Experiences to Savour

A trip to Sri Lanka is a whirlwind experience of traditions, culture and loads of adventure. Whether you are sunning on a beach, climbing a mountain or on the lookout for wildlife, these experiences are awesome.

1

Enjoy Hiking in Sri Lanka

Hiking in Sri Lanka is a nature lovers dream come true; head over to the central highlands and you have a temperate climate to deal with, as well as, gorgeous surroundings to explore. For instance, the Horton Plains National Park is a wonderland, where some exotic fauna and flora thrive only there; and a hike to Bakers Falls and World End is unforgettable. Trek to the top of Adams Peak, an eight hour climb, rewarded with a stunning sunrise and expansive 360 degree views of the surroundings. You can wander through lush tea estates; explore charming little villages, march through verdant paddy fields, trek coastal plains and enjoy horseback riding in Dambulla or Nuwara Eliya.

Head Off On A Cycle Tour in Sri Lanka

Want to get off the bustling streets? Then take on a cycling tour and enjoy the serene solitude of this exhilarating journey. Cycling is very popular amongst tourists in Sri Lanka and many hotels in down south Sri Lanka offer the services of experienced tour guides, who conduct cycling tours. It is dangerous to cycle on roads which have heavy vehicles plying them, thus, cycling within a tour group, led by a local guide will ensure your safety. Of course, make sure to also enjoy the sun, sand and surf the south coast is so well known for; staying at hospitality chains like Mandara Hotels & Resorts provide all the rest and relaxation you need in-between or after a cycle tour.

Try a Spot of Diving in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is fast gaining a reputation as a diving destination. There are plenty of excellent sites along the west, south and eastern coasts recommended for diving. The West Coast especially comes highly recommended for diving since the place is well serviced by a number of diving schools, and the waters are havens for coral reefs, marine life and some wrecks. The East Coast too is renowned for its coral beds and colourful fish while in the south, divers have wrecks to explore and a range of marine life such as dolphins, turtles and other fascinating sea creatures to observe.

Climb a Historic Rock in Sri Lanka

The Lion Rock of Sigiriya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is a whole citadel built upon a 600 foot boulder, sitting in the middle of a forest. This 5th century fortress is a treat to explore; not only are there ponds, gardens and the remnants of a throne at the summit, the views are absolutely stupendous. But, that's not all, if you are an avid rock climber; do check out the gorgeous Ella Range, the misty Knuckles Range, Buttala, Horton Plains, Bambarakanda Falls, etc.

Set Off on a Deep Sea Fishing Trip

One cannot forgo a deep sea fishing trip on an island relying heavily on fishing as an economy. Ask your Sri Lanka resort tour desk, for details on joining a fishing tour, and they will hook you up with the best. There are plenty of tours available, especially if you are staying at a Sri Lanka hotel in the south, west or east coast. The waters too are plentiful, and just about every enthusiastic fisherman returns with a successful catch.
