Three Sri Lankan Scenic Tour Tips

September 20, 2017 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

Our general manager in Colombo shares three travel options for Sri Lanka that highlight wild things, scenic beauty and ancient Sri Lankan cultural heritage.

What could be more amazing than seeing a mother blue whale swimming with her calf? Sri Lanka offers the best chance to see these majestic mammals swimming off the southern coast near Mirissa. There is also a chance to spot sperm whales that tend to move in groups. Khiri Travel Sri Lanka offers an exhilarating adventure to go whale watching by helicopter. This journey is a top choice for travelers interested in high excitement and wildlife. Timing is critical but when the seasonal conditions are optimum, Sri Lanka has blue whales in concentrations not seen elsewhere in the world.

Another exotic ecotourism adventure in Sri Lanka is caving. Our supplier and guides will outfit your travelers with in all the necessary gear to make the activity safe and accessible. Belilena Cave contains artifacts and excavations such as skeletal remains, stone tools and animal bone implements that prove the existence of prehistoric man dating back twenty thousand years. Exploring a dark, damp, wild cave is an otherworldly but fun experience.

Sri Lanka is endowed with sites of incredible scenic beauty, which are also associated with ancient legends. Our local guides love to tell the story of Ravana Falls, a wide and beautiful cascade over rock outcrops and named after a king from the Hindu epic, Ramayana. There is also Ella Cave and the Dowa Temple connected to each other and the waterfall with a legendary tunnel. Dowa is known for the 4m tall, unfinished Buddha image carved into the rock face and other cave walls painted with colorful Buddhist murals.
