Location

Sinharaja Rainforest

Sinharaja Rainforest is a world heritage site and major ecotourism destination, which can also be described as a Tropical Lowland Rainforest or Tropical Wet Evergreen Forest which covers an extent of approximately 11187 hectares. Whatever its ‘technical’ name, it is undoubtedly a rich treasure trove of nature with a great diversity of habitats and a vast repository of Sri Lanka’s endemic species found nowhere else in the world.

Bird watching in this ecosystem is particularly interesting because it is home to 95% of the endemic birds of Sri Lanka, named as a world heritage site in 1989. This lowland evergreen rain forest is steeped in deep legend and mystery. The word ‘Sinharaja’ means, Lion (Sinha) King (Raja), and it is popular belief that the legendary origin of the Sinhala people is the union between a princess and the lion king who once lived in the forest. You will be privileged to learn of geology, plant lives and animal lives during the trekking with a naturalist.

Yala National Park

Yala National Park is situated in Sri Lanka’s dry zone, made up of scrub jungles, water reservoirs, brackish lagoons, and riverine habitats. It has the highest population density of leopards in the world, and is also home to a herd of 300 to 350 elephants.
