Sri Lanka has a well documented history that spans over 3000 years, and its location and deep harbours made it of strategic importance from the time of the ancient Silk Road through to World War II. It is a diverse country that is home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. Sri Lanka has a rich Buddhist heritage, and the first known Buddhist writings were composed on the island. Even today almost 99% of Sri Lakans claim that religion is an important part of their daily lives.
The island consists mostly of flat-to-rolling coastal plains, with mountains rising only in the south-central part. The climate is tropical and warm, and average yearly temperature ranges from 28 °C to 31 °C during the day and night temperatures may vary by 14 °C to 18 °C.
There are 103 rivers in Sri Lanka, and these waterways give rise to 51 natural waterfalls of 10 meters or more. Sri Lanka’s stunning coastline is 1,585 km long and the coastline and adjacent waters support marine ecosystems such as fringing coral reefs and estuarine seagrasses.

Responsible and Eco friendly travel
This is a request more than a fact or advice. Sri Lanka is a very beautiful and natural place. Because of this we request that all tourists be responsible when using facilities.
Water is one of the most essential resources in Sri Lanka as it is used widely for farming and producing electricity. As a part of our water conservation request you could consider the following while you are enjoying your holiday.
- Consider quick baths.
- Refrain leaving the tap open while brushing teeth or shaving
- Refrain throwing away drinking water
Use your waste considering the environment and we recommend using re-usable bags for shopping. Electricity, since it is produced by water, is also important not to waste. Please do not leave on lights or TV/radio while you are out and keep the Air Conditioning running only while you are in the room.
Wildlife conservation is a priority, especially the most endangered species. Please consider this when you go shopping and refrain from buying anything made out of an endangered species. Please also consider the sustainability and refrain from buying anything that is seemingly made in an unsustainable manner.
We advise that you strongly refrain from purchasing ancient artifacts. If you have any doubts please consult your guide.
