Be amused by grey langurs and toque macaques who sneak a look as they dart across high trees. Pedal through the untarred red paths, taking in the rural colours and stop by a roadside stall for a sweet king coconut drink.

Climb up the stairways of the Rock Fortress of Sigiriya marvelling at ancient art and architecture. Witness the redolent beauty of the Lion’s Paw Gate, Mirror Wall, frescoes and ruins of the ancient citadel sitting between water, boulder and terraced gardens. Head over to the ancient Dambulla Cave Temple and immerse in its aesthetically pleasing Buddha statues and murals spread across a number of caves. Partake in an adventurous wildlife safari in the Minneriya and Kawudulla National Parks, exploring exotic animals and birds of the island.

You are wandering the lush jungles of Habarana on an eloquent afternoon. As charged winds whip about lofty trees, stripes of apple-green sky flash into being. Habarana - a soul-stirring oil painting materializing from the dry sod…
