MIHINTALE
Set in Anurdhapura, the ancient city in the central province of Sri Lanka, significant both historically and religiously, Mihintale holds a quiet and peaceful environ around its rocky range. This spot where India’s King Ashoka’s son, reverend Mahinda, a Buddhist monk met the local King Tissa on a night with full moon and preached Buddhism, is still visited by many, after nearly 2300 years of this recorded meeting, especially in June on the full moon Poya day.

FORTRESSES
The Dutch had much influence in this island located in the middle of the ancient trade route. Dutch colonial days in Sri Lanka saw local food, architecture, clothes, religion and language feel their sway. Today, the grand Dutch fortresses stand strong having built in stone and coral, to withstand invasions and time. Take a look at these wonders considered a heritage, and now converted to charming venues themselves.

KANNELIYA
Its not just beaches in southern Sri Lanka that await discovery. Orienteering, rock climbing, trekking or hiking, whichever is your hobby – taking a walk along Kanneliya along the rainforest in this tropical isle, is an experience itself. A trip to see nature at its best, tourists are advised to trek with care, while enjoying themselves. Not something for the faint hearted… but surely a trip for the fit.
