Why Sri Lanka is the goal of the spirit and how it will change your life.
This year celebrates 70 years of independence and here are many good reasons to visit the country of the sun, from unobtainable leopards and abundance of curry, a trip to the mountains to the end of the world with miles of white sandy beaches.
Monkeys emerging from every corner, especially at the entrance to the temples, cows grazing peacefully on the streets and kindness as a natural attitude. Sri Lanka is an island as large as Ireland and 10-15 days are enough to get an idea of the country, including beaches and archaeological sites.
Our historic partner Jetwing Italia, for this summer, signals some unmissable excursions that offer unforgettable emotions like a hot air balloon ride over the area of KANDALAMA– Dambulla that will take you to fly at a height of 600 meters on the most beautiful archaeological area of the country and sometimes even higher to exploit
A night bicycle rideto explore Colombo is definitely the best way to discover the chaotic and throbbing capital and avoid daytime traffic, crossing interesting places, seeing glimpses that you would otherwise have never noticed, hearing sounds and noises of the night city and the life of its inhabitants.
A visit to the true paradise of cardamom cultivation, the isolated village of Meemure, in the Knuckles area, 15km from Corbetts’s gap, should not be ignored. The village is inhabited by people who have strong beliefs and live in perfect harmony with Mother Nature, using for their survival, the many good fruits and resources of the earth. In addition, you can hike in the forest of about 12 km and take a refreshing bath in the waters of the streams.
For lovers of thrilling thrill, a pure adrenaline experience and not really for everyone is the abseiling near Kitulgala. A wonderful and evocative waterfall is your starting point for an adventurous activity of rappelling. You will find yourself suspended in the air at a height of 35 meters: a huge expanse of water below you, above you only the sky. The waterfall “Hadunella” is one of the most famous waterfalls of the island and is ideal for this extreme sport.
For those who want to deepen the spirituality and religious culture of the country’s traditions, the meeting with a Buddhist monk in a Kandy Temple will dispel any doubt.
For those looking for absolute relaxation, the Passekudah beachis an unmissable destination. Located in a small, heavenly and exclusive bay north of Batticalo, at dawn it is filled with small fishing boats, offering romantic and unforgettable settings. In this area not frequented by mass tourism, you will find a few villas and small luxury resorts, places surrounded by nature but with all the conveniences of chance. Here Jetwing reports the interesting proposal for sea staysvalid from 1 September to 30 November 2018 with quotas starting from $ 110 per room, per night in bed and breakfast.
