Sri Lanka – Final Impression

Sri Lankan Elephant

Today, is the last day of 2019 year and the last day of the month with my travel impressions from Sri Lanka. I have to say, I’ve visited Sri Lanka kind of by accident, but I enjoyed my trip a lot. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you like my pictures and enjoy traveling with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish you a Happy New Year!

Sri Lanka – Eighth Wonder of the World – Sigiriya

Sri Lanka – Sigiriya

Sigiriya is one of the most visited and most famous tourist attraction in Sri Lanka.
It’s even called (mostly by locals) as the Eighth Wonder of the World.

While visiting Sigiriya, pay attention to the amazing paintings/frescoes!

Sri Lanka – Kandy Festival

Sri Lanka – Kandy

Kandy is also known for the festival called “the Esala Perahera” or just “the Festival of the Tooth”.
It takes place annually in June or August.
It’s basically a large, colorful procession with the tooth of Buddha.

I’ve seen it and felt a bit sorry to all elephantsโ€ฆ

Sri Lanka – Horton Plains National Park

Sri Lanka – Horton Plains National Park

Horton Plains National Park is a lovely area with rich flora and fauna.
It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When I think about Sri Lanka in general, the Horton Plains National Park somehow doesn’t fit to my image; of course it’s part of sri Lanka, but also something that you may not called as “Sri Lankan”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And, in the Horton, you’ll find a toilet with such a nice view;
ok a bit cloudyโ€ฆ
and yes, no glasses in this windows. ๐Ÿ˜‰
