Sri Lanka
Host Country

Wonderful beaches, marvellous mountains, lush green forests, exciting wildlife, spectacular cities or ancient history, whatever you are looking for, Sri Lanka is the only unique destination that offers all the above excitements within a very short reach and in different climates. Sri Lanka , the magnificent island of paradise, is on the Indian Ocean south of India and is widely known as the Pearl of the Indian Ocean, owing to the inexplicable beauty and majesty, which Sri Lanka is fraught with.



Kandy, the Hill Capital was the last bastion of the Sinhala kings and is a charming city offering a living record of a magnificent past. Some say Kandy is the only other real 'coty' in Sri Lanka, other than Colombo. The easygoing capital of the hill country has a lot to offer - history, culture, forested hills and a touch of urban buzz. Only 115 km inland from the capital, climatically it is a world away due to its 500m altitude. Kandy was also the capital of the last Sinhalese kingdom. The town and the countryside around it, is lush and green and there are many pleasant walks both from the town or further afield. The town centre, close of Kandy’s picturesque lake set in a bowl if hills, is a delightful jumble of old shops, antique and gemstones specialists, a bustling market and a good selection of hotels and restaurants.

Kandy is a romantic city any time of the year, but in August, this ancient capital becomes the venue of one of the most legendary festivals in Asia, the Festival of the August Moon when thousands of people from all parts of the country and from foreign countries throng to the Hill Capital to witness the magnificent spectacle.
