We spent 7 days in Sri Lanka in December 2014 and this little island country has quickly become one of my favourite places visited so far. Sri Lanka largely comprises of the Sinhalese and Tamilians and is happily situated in the Indian Ocean, only an hours plane ride away from Ciombatore.
The country has beautiful untouched beaches, wild life reserves, coffee/tea plantations, lush green hill stations and ancient ruinous villages. With stark contrasts in weather and landscapes and with incredible cultural diversity as one can see in India; trying to fit in as much as possible in 7 days seemed challenging. With a little research though, we did manage to capture a little of everything and came away with a deep longing to keep going back.
We have detailed our itinerary below:
