This holiday idea covers the sites of the cultural triangle as well as some amazing beaches near Trincommalee and the central hills near Kithugalla.
- Admire the 'Gathering of the elephants' in Minneriya National Park.
- Discover the real cultural triangle with our unique experiences without ever feeling 'templed out'.
- Enjoy the hills and the tea, without too much travel.
The weather is perfect for this holiday during the months of May to July, when the rest of the country is being hit by the south western monsoon. While the beaches in the south and west coasts are hit by frequent rain and rough seas during this time, Trincomalee is generally bathed in sunshine, with great snorkelling and diving opportunities in the calm seas just off shore. The weather remains great for this tour right through to October.
It’s however not just about the beach. We’ve included a few days of site-seeing in Sri Lanka’s famous cultural triangle. You will be able to take in Sigirya and Polonaruwa, before embarking on an elephant safari to see the famous ‘gathering of the elephants' which takes place from July to September.
