yala national park
In a week-long trip, you can either cover the hilly north region or the picturesque south beaches and cultural high-points. Yala national park is very famous for wild safaris and one can spend one extra day to stay overnight in a camp before moving for Nuwara Eliya. Sunsets are the high point of a trip to the ceylon land and it surprises you with colors that you may have not enjoyed in a while.

Yala national park is famous for Leopards. But our tough luck that only on that fateful day, none of the approx. 100 cars in the jungle could spot even a single leopard. We did spot a few jackals outside the jungle boundaries though. Nothing rare except that. Before going on a safari, it would be good to check if its a holiday in SL or if the weather's too hot.
