Optimal Weather in Sri Lanka

November 8, 2017 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

The best weather in southern Sri Lanka is before the Yala monsoon, making February and March the optimal time to visit. Explore three Khiri Travel Signature Experiences in these urban spaces, balmy beaches and excellent wildlife adventures.

 

Colombo is a captivating city with its vibrant mix of modern comforts and historic preservations. Highlights include Fort, the busy central business district, while just east is Pettah, famous for its lively commerce and cultural diversity. Stroll the leafy embassy district of Cinnamon Gardens or Galle Face Green, the city’s ocean side promenade.

Exploring Galle is best done with a bicycle and/or a guide to explain all the historical memories of this World Heritage city such as the Galle Fort, center of Dutch rule in the 17th century.

Switch gears and head southeast for the wild openness of Yala National Park. Its undulating terrain is home to the world’s highest concentration of leopards and popular for elephants, crocodiles and wild boar. A spooky nighttime safari allows travelers a chance to spot nocturnal animals of prey.

The southern coastline also presents two engaging ecotourism opportunities: sea turtle conservation and whale watching. Dondra Head is one of the best locations in the world for seeing the gigantic blue and sperm whales together while Rekawa is a protected sea turtle nesting sanctuary.
