TOUR DESCRIPTION
This travel package is for those seeking a true Muslim-friendly holiday in Sri Lanka. Journey includes following cities Kandy, Dambulla, Sigiriya and Nuwara Eliya, with unique experiences hand-picked for the Muslim travelers. Sri Lanka is a diverse destination with an amazing range of experiences for such a small island. The recorded history of the Island dates back 2500 years when an exiled prince from north India drifted into the shores of Sri Lanka to establish the first known civilization here. For a small island, Sri Lanka can boast of a diverse landscape of golden beaches, rolling hills, forests and lush tea plantations.
Kandy is Sri Lanka’s second biggest city and the capital of the central province. The busy town is situated in a valley at an elevation of 600 meters, inside a wide loop of the Mahaweli River and is surrounded by hills covered with tropical vegetation. Home to the Sri Dalada Maligawa the beautiful temple that houses the tooth relic of Lord Buddha. Kandy is also a popular stop during July/August when the annual Esala Perehera (holy festival) takes to the streets of the city.
Nuwara Eliya is one of the coldest area in Sri Lanka, also known as “The Little England” due to its colonial British cottages and lush hill trees.
