A trip to Sri Lanka doesn’t just involve eating incredible food and lying on the beach. There are plenty of ways to stay active and get your heart pumping on this tropical island. From scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing on the South and East coasts to white water rafting in Kithulgala or hiking in the Knuckles and tea country, or summit the island’s highest mountain at Adam’s Peak to view sunrise with the pilgrims who make the journey from December to May in their thousands. The Hill Country has multiple options for short, easy day hikes and multi-day treks. Sri Lanka is a much under-developed and unknown destination for those looking for a more active and adventurous holiday.
