My personal top Top 13 Places to visit in Sri Lanka and best to do in Sri Lanka that shouldn’t be missed when visiting. This video can be your Sri Lanka travel guide to plan your trip to Sri Lanka. These are again some of the best places to visit in Sri Lanka
Here are few of the best tourist attractions in Sri Lanka. And best things to do in Sri Lanka
1. Kandy to Ella Train: Taking the train is the most comfortable way to travel. You can meet other travelers and locals, read, listen to music, relax and watch the landscape. Train travel in Sri Lanka is both a beautiful and affordable way to see the country, and no trip is more scenic than the train from Ella to Kandy.
2. Lover’s Leap Waterfall (Nuwara Eliya): This a pretty little fall, and the walk is quite pleasant. Plan it for the morning when it’s clear.
3. The Single Tree Hill: The word “Single Tree” has been in existence from time immemorial. An excellent view of the sunrise can be seen from the top of this mountain. Situated 6890 ft above mean sea level and takes about 90 minutes to reach the top. Single Tree hill is the best vantage point to observe the beauty of Nuwara Eliya and the beauty of Haggala Mountain range.
4. Ramboda Waterfall (Nuwara Eliya): Ramboda Falls is 109 m high and 11th highest waterfall in Sri Lanka and 729th highest waterfall in the world. It is situated in Pussellawa area, on the A5 highway at Ramboda Pass.
5. Little Adam’s Peak: The Little Adam`s Peak, 1141 m high, is fairly easy to climb, with a good path all the way up. The trip is about 2-3 hours in total. It is not a challenging hike and it`s quite short, but gives you a good impression of the landscape around Ella and the view is fantastic!
6. Pidurangala Rock: Pidurangala is a massive rock formation located a few kilometers north of Sigiriya in Sri Lanka. It has an interesting history closely related to that of the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Pidurangala was formed by volcanic activity.
7. Horton’s Plain: Horton Plains is a beautiful, silent, strange world with some excellent hikes in the shadows of Sri Lanka’s second- and third-highest mountains, Kirigalpotta (2395m) and Totapola (2359m). The ‘plains’ themselves form an undulating plateau over 2000m high, covered by wild grasslands and interspersed with patches of thick forest, rocky outcrops, filigree waterfalls and misty lakes. The surprising diversity of the landscape is matched by the wide variety of wildlife.
8. The World’s End: The walk to World’s End is 4km, but the trail loops back to Baker’s Falls (2km) and continues back to the entrance (another 3.5km). The 9.5km round trip takes a leisurely three hours. Unless you get there early the view from World’s End is often obscured by mist.
9. Ella Rock: Ella Rock is a famous cliff, located high above Ella’s village, roughly a two hours strenuous trek from the center of town. The rock offers stunning views across the hill country and the plains below.
10. Jaffna Fort: Situated on the south side of the Jaffna peninsula at the water’s edge of the lagoon, the ancient Jaffna Fort is the second largest existing fort in the Island. Originally built by the Portuguese in 1619 and re-built and expanded by the Dutch during the second half of the 17th and the 18th centuries to facilitate trading activities of Sri Lanka’s northern region indicate not only of Jaffna’s strategic importance to Europeans but its significance throughout Sri Lanka’s history.
11. Mirissa Beach: Mirissa is 4km southeast of Weligama, and is another quickly developing crescent of beach.
12. Kankesanthurai or KSS Beach: KKS is considered to be one of the best beaches in the Northern Province; the other being Casuarina Beach. Untouched and less crowded this strip of shore provides unique experiences that one can only find in this northernmost coast. It is one where visitors step into pristine waters and enjoy a swim in the hopes of cooling off after a long day of exploring the town in the sun.
13. Whale Watching: The best place to spot whales is in Mirissa, a small tourist town on Sri Lanka’s south coast, popular for surfing and famous for whale watching.
14. Galle: The seaside town of Galle is 116 Km away from Colombo.
This video is just an iota of all the fun I had in my 15 days of my solo backpacking travel to Sri Lanka, not to mentioned under 500$. I traveled from the central to the bottom and then to the top covering as much ground as I could. I tried to fit as much as I could in this video. However, there is a lot I would love to share but I have kept it for my blog. I would be mentioning the itinerary that followed. If you consider this video interesting.
