Sri Lanka, once known as Ceylon, is an island of legends.

Palm trees and elephant processions set the stage for the religious epic, the Ramayana, in which Lanka, the evil king, carries Rama’s wife from India to the island. It’s an island of tradition and environmental beauty unlike no other.


Sri Pada, the island’s sacred mountain, has the imprint of Buddha’s foot. If you are lucky enough to see the mountain’s refection from the top in the horizon at sunrise on a clear day it is certain that prosperity will follow. A temple in Kandy, in the central hills, enshrines the tooth of Buddha, it is believed. Ride a moterbike to Horton’s Point known as the “end of the world”. Take a train tthrough the tea plantations to Nuriwa Eliya or visit archilogical ruins in Annuradhapura. Sri Lanka welcomes you to explore its culture, its land.
