Dream Destination

Sri Lanka is a country of great natural beauty with scenery varying from palm-fringed beaches, mist laden highlands of the interior and diverse natural environment with an equitable climate variation within short distances.

The nature base consists of a coast line extending over 1,585 km with warm blue coastal waters, coral reefs and sandy beaches, primeval forests full of wild life, wetlands and mountain ranges with gushing waterfalls.

Sinharaja rain forest is a world heritage site. The bio-diversity in Sri Lanka is said to be greater per square kilometer of surface area than any other country in Asia. Sri Lanka is blessed with numerous natural eco systems.

Despite its relatively small size among its flora and fauna, 23% of the flowering plants and 16% of the mammals in the island are endemic. Of the 435 birds, 23 are endemic and within a short period birders will be able to see a large number of birds. According to researchers 1/3rd of ecotourists are birders. A U.S. National Survey on recreation and the environment showed that in 1994/1995, 54 million people took part in bird watching.

Sri Lanka is a dream destination for tourist around the globe. Natural beauty, friendly people blessed with Buddhism are the greatest assets of the country.

The man-made base consists of historic and cultural sites, some of which date back to over 2000 years. The kaleidoscope of these sites is fascinating. According to the World Tourism Organization, Sri Lanka has the advantage of having 49 sites classed as unique attractions, 91 as rare attractions and 6 World heritage sites.
