Overview

Sri Lanka is an island off the southeast coast of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is separated from India by the Indian Ocean, in which lies the chain of islands called Adam’s Bridge.
Ancient Buddhist sites in Sri-Lanka include Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya, Dambulla, Panduwasnuwara, and Yapahuwa. All these places contain the remains of a great civilization which grew through the centuries under the influence of Buddhism, a gentle faith still preserved in Sri Lanka in its purest form.

The Sri Lankan conventional foods are spicy, and it is advised to approach curries with caution. There are many vegetables, fruits, meats and seafood’s available. Continental, Chinese, Indian and Japanese menus are available in Colombo and other touristic places. The specialty is basic curry, made with coconut milk, sliced onion, green chilies, aromatic spices such as cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, saffron, and aromatic leaves.

Sri Lanka is without a doubt one of the most scenic places on the planet, and well worth visiting. It’s world-renowned for thick, tropical jungles, its tea garden, elephant orphanage, perfect beaches and an entire calendar of colorful festivals.

Sri Lankan holiday booked through earthbound

This is the second time we have used Earthbound to arrange a holiday. Following a fantastic trip to Nepal earlier in the year, we used Earthbound to arrange a 8 day trip to Sri Lanka including 4 locations and getting us a ticket to England vs Sri Lanka in the cricket. Rajan was fantastic at answering all of our questions and liaising with an associated your agent in Sri Lanka. Everything went extremely smoothly and all our requests were met perfectly. I would highly recommend Earthbound.

Thousands of years of history and culture on one stunning island

Sri Lanka was our fourth trip arranged by Earthbound Expeditions. We have always been pleased with the professional, friendly and prompt attention provided by Rajan, president of the company. He has been very helpful in customizing trips to suit our needs and always selects good guides and drivers. There are many things to do in Sri Lanka. We especially enjoyed exploring the historical sites that had once been capitals of the country. Hiking to and exploring Buddhist pilgrimage sites such as Sigiriya fortress, Mihinthale and Dambulla Rock Cave Temple were also highlights of the trip. Visually the island extends from coastal beaches to cool lush green hills where large tea plantation hills are located.
