Best Places To Visit In SRI LANKA | Guide to Travel In SRI LANKA
LET'S TAKE A TRIP TO SRILANKA
Travel to Sri Lanka is seriously a great experience with different best beautiful places to visit in Sri Lanka. There are countless opportunities for unique, thrilling, and adventurous experiences, A problem for anyone considering a trip to Sri Lanka is narrowing down the list of things to do which is why, Today's I'll be sharing 12 of the highlights from my month-long trip around the country.
You'll find a ton of surf instructors on the beach and, for around $20, you can hire an instructor as well as rent a board and a wetsuit to then spend two hours learning the basics and heading out into the ocean. You will likely have no problem standing up on your first lesson with the big, stable beginner surf boards that they provide. After just one lesson, I was completely hooked and would love to head back to Weligama and rent a board on my own to continue practicing. It's extremely safe and very fun. This next activity I almost didn't include on this list because it's not a typical Sri Lanka tourist bucket-list attraction.

You will probably also like the Nine Arches Bridge in Ella. You can find the train schedules online and plan your visit around the train coming to watch it go over the bridge. You can walk along the bridge, but keep in mind that it's still being used, and there are several times a day where the train will pass over the bride, so it's definitely better to watch from a distance. Doing Adam Peak's pilgrimage is another can't-miss activity in Sri Lanka that I cannot recommend highly enough. Adam's Peak is considered to be the most sacred place in the country and believed to be where Adam first touched Earth. Reaching Adam's Peak is a mission; you will climb over 5,000 steps. So, while there is no technical skill involved, it's certainly a workout. I enjoyed this track way more than I was expecting. It wasn't even about the view at the top; it was pretty misty and you couldn't see much, to be honest. But it was very fulfilling and there's this sense of community, like you're a part of something bigger while you're climbing. Adam's Peak holds so much meaning to the Sri Lankan people, and it's beautiful to see that. You'll climb alongside locals and foreigners alike while also being amazed by the number of elderly Sri Lankan men and women that are making the track bare-foot.
The most visited spot in all of Sri Lanka has got to be the Sigiriya rock fortress. It's known by the locals as the eighth wonder in the world, and is famous for the palace ruins that you'll find on the top of this 200-meter rock. It may take you two to four hours to get to the top, but it's the most popular site for a reason, so you won't regret it. Many people also do enjoy hiking the nearby Rock Pidurangala. The view of the Rock Fortress from this hike is absolutely breath-taking, especially at sunset. Finally, while Sri Lanka is full of adventure, there are also so many opportunities to slow down, learn something new, and indulge in the food. Make sure you take some time to take advantage of the self-care opportunities.
Consider a drop in yoga class on the beach or in the mountains, getting a massage, touring a tea plantation, or even trying a cooking class. Trust me when I say that Sri Lankan cuisine is not going to disappoint. I feel like number 13 on this list should be eat the food. Eat all the food. Sri Lanka truly has something for everyone, and I would love to know in the comments down below which experience stood out most to you. It would be great if you could give this video a thumbs up as it helps it reach more people.
Thank you so much for reading, and I hope to see you in the next one.
