If there is a paradise on earth, it has to be none other than Sri Lanka. This island-nation is one of it’s kind. I mean, it gave us Jacqueline Fernandes okay? Jokes apart (not a joke, but anyway), anyone who has been to Sri Lanka will not shut up about it. It is that beautiful! There are so many different places to visit, so many things to do, so many adventures to experience and a lot more. It’s apt for every kind of mood, vibe, occasion and situation. So, let’s break it down for every mood, shall we?
1. Leisure Time
The palm tree rope swing at Dalawella beach should be the first spot for an unforgettable sunset. As the name says, there is a rope swing attached to a palm tree where you can swing your stress away and just appreciate the beauty of nature. Maybe take some pictures for your #PicOfTheDay on Instagram. Ask for the guesthouse called Dream Cabana for the exact location of the swing, it is right in front of it.
2. Trek Or Hike?
Have you ever trekked through tea-plantations before? If not, this will be the most treasured hike of your life. If yes, this will still be the most treasured hike of your life. That’s the power of Sri Lanka’s beauty. You can find this beautiful trail in Nuwara Eliya. There are also high chances of gaining a lot of historical information about it, so make sure to interact with the locals!
If you’re a hiking person, you’re going to love Little Adams Peak hike. It is a shorter hike compared to the average ones, making it all the more unique. It is located in Ella, again a picturesque place to explore!
