Castles in the sky are more than just a figment of your imagination. For there’s something very real
about this splendid island and its many wonders. In a serene moment of mediation you are elevated to
a higher stage of mind. Then the sheer majesty of Sigiriya rock Fortress with its breathtaking landscaped
gardens make you feel on top of the world. Ascend the mountain of Butterflies, a sacred ground to
pilgrims of four world religions. Visit caves that were home to prehistoric man and move amongst
the vestiges of ancient cities. 2500 years of civilization, eight world heritage sights and dozens of little
wonders await you come discover.
Surrounded by the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean, miles of golden sand contour the little
island in the sun. Here’s a vision of supernatural beaty. By day it’s a sacred ground for sun worshipers.
By night, the moonlit shores and the soft full of the waves echo romance and tranquility. Sip then
refreshing water of a kingcoconut and simply watch the day go by. Visit the unforgettable beaches of Sri
Lanka, and you’d always have its sand in your shoes.
There’s an exotic isle in Asia, where the traveler is guided by sheer instinct. Wake up to the call of
indigenous birds. Drink deep from a babbling brook. Tack in the moist air of a rainforest. Spend an
afternoon in the presence of snoozing leopards and bathing elephants. Watch an amorous peacock
flaunt its plumage against the flaming sunset. Turn your gaze towards the ocean to witnss pods of
frolicking dolphins at play. Dive deep to discover multi-hued underwater gardens and silent shipwrecks.
And as night falls, end one adventure. Start another.
There’s a greeting that every visitor to Sri Lanka becomes acquainted with. “Ayubowan” is “hello” and
“welcome”. But most importantly, it is the wish of long life upon the greeted. It is this wish that we carry
into the ancient practice of Ayurweda. Amidst the scent of warm aromatic oils. A heavenly massage
kneads away, your sins. In a bath strewn with tropical flowers your mind, body and soul are bathed in
virtue. Visit its wondrous isle of bliss. And it will breathe life in to you.
On a night illuminated by the full moon, the distant sound of cracking of whips and the beating of
drums creates the overture for an evening of magic. Soon, a fairy tale parade of dancers, musicians
and elephants adorned with rich drapes and gold and silver trimmings, come into vision. Whether it’s
celebration or veneration, the diversity of culture and religion in Sri Lanka keeps the spirit of festivity
alive, all year round.
What does it for you? The attitude of a ride on the crest of a surf? The rush of a rapid on a roamy river?
A safari through the jungle? A friendly game of beach cricket with the locals? Some golf in the gills?
Shopping. People watching or perhaps a ride in a tuk tuk through the bustling city. Choose your pace
and Sri Lanka will delight you at every turn.
A meandering ascent through the gills along the rise and fall of the blue green landscape emulates a
journey to heaven. The cool mountain air rejuvenates your spirit. Suddenly you catch sight of a white
veil of cascading waters. Tea gardens dotted with brightly affired figures. Their quick fingers picking out
the freshet leaves. And at the end of the journey, you are greeted with an invigorating cup of Ceylon tea.
At 4000 feet above sea level, altitude is only one reason to believe you’re in heaven.
