Sri Lanka's so-called cultural triangle stands on its point on Kandy, the last Singhalese capital. Within this area are the great sites of ancient Lanka: at top left is Anuradhapura, the first capital, where centuries of kings built ever-larger domed monuments to Buddha. Nearby is Mihintale, a monastic city that grew up around the cave that sheltered the first disciple of Buddhism, Mahinda. The medieval capital, Polonnaruwa, is further south. It contains complete buildings and colossal rock sculptures. In the middle is Sigiriya, where a usurper built his royal palace on top of a loaf-shaped rock. Any one of these four sites is enough to impress even the most worldly traveller, taken together they are overwhelming.

The tropical beauty of East Coast, lying completely land-locked, it forms a glassy lake surrounded by hills covered with the waving foliage of coconut tress and palms of great variety. The white bungalows with their re-tiled roofs, are dotted about along the shore, and two or here men of war are usually resting at their ease in this calm retreat.

The West Coast, Arthur C.Clarke, one of Sri Lanka's most celebrated residents, described it thus: "And always it is the same: the slender palm trees leaning over the white sand, the warm sun sparkling on the waves as they break on the inshore reef, the outrigger fishing boats drawn up high on the beach. This alone is real; the rest is but a dream from which I shall presently awake."

The South Coast, the road to the deep south plunges you into a region rich in history and cultural interest, and there are several vast and impressive nature reserves, including Yala, Bundala and Uda Walawe.
It all begins at Galle, which is believed to be the possible location of the city of Tarshish, of Biblical fame, the source of a thriving trade in "gold", silver, ivory, apes and Peacocks.

The coolestspring is 29°C (84°F) and the hottest not more than 46°C (115°F).

Hermann Hesse beautifully described this area, " The wind had just swept clean the whole valley, I saw deep blue and immense, the entire high mountain system of Ceylon piled up in mighty walls, and in it's midst the beautiful, ancient and holy pyramid of Adam's Peak. Beside it at an infinite depth and distance lay the flat blue sea, in between a thousand mountains, broad valleys, narrow ravines, rivers and waterfalls, in countless folds, the whole mountainous island on which the ancient legend placed paradise."

The mountainous region of Sri Lanka is most famous for its tea plantations, the abundant rainfall combined with sunshine, cold nights and mists offered the perfect climate for producing high gown, aromatic treas.
15°C (altitude 1800m)

Traveling eastwards through a landscape of thrilling waterfalls, the road dives dizzily to Haputale, which was one of tea millionaire Thomas Lipton's favourite haunts. Here, in the Benedictine monastery of Addisham, you'll find a natural bird sanctuary with blue magpies, paradise flycatchers, green barbets, brilliant orange plumaged mini-verts hornbills, golden orioles and a host of other bird life.

The house resembles Leeds Castle in Kent, England, and was in fact built by Kentish gentleman, who filled it with imported carpets, porcelain, furniture and glassware. He even had an English chauffeur for this Daimler. Today it is run as a monastery, which produces homemade jams and jellies from wild guavas and fruit cordials for sale (open 9am-12 noon and 3-5pm). Though in no way a full commercial guesthouse, Addisham can accommodate up to 12 people by prior arrangements.To stand on a mountain, with the trees about you alive with the twinkling lights of a galaxy of fireflies, and gaze on villages thousands of feet below, is to experience the spirit of this island. The visual spectacle is often paralleled by the hauntingly sweet perfumes of the queen of the night or the large, white, pendulous angels trumpets and all around the silver bell sounds of tree frogs tinkle a mysterious melody.

Traveling through the mountains of Sri Lanka is always a rewarding experience. The high country combines with the monsoons to give the island at least four distinct types of forest, each with its own peculiar complement of plants and animals. There are wildlife sanctuaries in each area and all are irresistible, and quite accessible. Sri Lankans have always taken conservation seriously, perhaps due to their Buddhist principles, with records of animal protection found even in the ancient text of the mahavamsa
