SRI LANKA
Natural Heritage & Cultural Wonders
January 25-February 7, 2019

We invite you to join this botanical and cultural adventure of discovery to the lush tropical isle of Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon), situated like a tear drop in the Indian Ocean, just south of India!

Explore this fascinating jewel of a country, led by Neela de Zoysa, an outstanding botanist and naturalist from SriSri Lanka Expedition Map Lanka who has been a popular instructor for the Society since 2011.

Discover many of the scenic, natural and botanic wonders of Sri Lanka, including:

  • Sigiriya, the dramatic rock fortress and World Heritage Site, renowned worldwide!
  • Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens, with a splendid avenue of palms and renowned for its orchids and fruit bats.
  • Sinharaja World Heritage Site, a global biodiversity hotspot with virgin rainforest and an abundance of endemic flora, birds, and butterflies.
  • Yala and Horton Plains National Parks, with a profusion of elephants and possibly a leopard strolling along the track!

Delight in the lush slopes covered with tea plantations as you traverse the cool mountainous highlands.

Also learn about the rich cultural heritage of this land of serendipity, from early Buddhist times to its Portuguese, Dutch, and British influences!

Join us for a delightful adventure to the Jewel of the Indian Ocean!
