The Cultural Triangle in Sri Lanka is an area that comprises Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Dambulla in the centre of the island, just north of Kandy, and the central highlands. It’s a wonderful destination for lovers of history, as this is the heart of culture in Sri Lanka. Here, you’ll find a bounty of UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the ancient ruins of royal dwellings and historic cities, Buddhist temples from the first century BC and stunning vistas, especially from the impressive granite rock ruins of Sigiriya.
For something a little different, visit the amazing National Parks, including Wasgamuwa, where you can see Asian elephants in their natural habitats as well as the chance to spot monkeys, rare birds and the elusive sloth bear and Sri Lankan leopard.
