Negombo-Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is filled with romantic landscapes and governed by rising mountains, lush forests, ocean-like tanks and gushing waterfalls that it is considered the lost paradise by many globetrotters. The golden beaches of the country have been praised for their picture postcard views since eternity. The dusk and dawn and many human activities connected to these times of the day create a vibrant picture along the coasts of Sri Lanka.

The central highlands of the island are filled with pictures of stirring mountains carpeted with lush green tea gardens, roaring waterfalls mingling with the clouds and landscapes shimmering in sunlight and disappearing under the rising mist. Travelling towards the top of the country to the North Central Valley of the Kings, mountains covered with lush tropical forests disappears under the glare of the sun, giving way to acres of light green carpets of paddy dotted with towering ancient white stupas and fed with oceans like reservoirs locally known as wewa. Giant statues of Lord Buddha rises above the forest line while ancient palaces stand abandoned.

Travelling further north leads to a drastic change in the landscape. North of Sri Lanka is a world apart from the rest of country. Colourful Hindu temples replace the white pagodas while sari-clad damsels roam the streets on bicycles.

On the western coasts of the country is Colombo, the capital city of the island, which displays a rich colonial heritage. A potpourri of races, religions and cultures, Colombo offers the best and worst of the whole country.
