Sri Lanka was always on my list and finally i got a chance to put all my research to test with this trip! As much did i try to stick to the itinerary i also altered plans according to the locals after i reached there.
A beautiful place, with generous people!
We took an early morning flight to Sri Lanka via Chennai and reached the airport, got a customised plan close to my itinerary drafted from a travel company. It got easy and accessible to places by booking a cab for the whole trip (approximately for a 10 thousand Sri Lankan rupees) From the airport the journey started towards the first destination 'Sigiriya'
On the way we stopped at Pinnawala which is famous for it's elephant orphanages. It could cost you a minimum of 1500 to 3000 LKR for a tour inside the orphanage depending on what you choose to do.
We got to learn many new things about elephants and their evolution. We also got a chance to bathe them. This place was worth the time!
