A Land Like No Other!
Sri Lanka is an island lying on a area of 65,610 sq km off the Southeastern coast of India in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Being a beautiful tropical island, it is known as the "pearl of the Indian Ocean". Although it's a small island, Sri Lanka has a proud history of over 2500 years. The ancient ruins which situated throughout the country are the living proof of that great history and those ruins have their own story of that glorious history and its culture.
Sri Lanka is a country with beautiful landscapes. Outstanding feature of the topography of Sri Lanka is a mountainous mass in the south central part of the country. In the upland area are two plateaus, Nuwara Eliya and Horton Plains, which are major centers of commercial tea plantations. The plateaus are noted for their cool, healthful climate. North of the mountains, and extending south, is an arid and gently rolling plain known as the dry zone.
Tropical rain forests and its wildlife make the island even more beautiful. Being a tropical island, it has the luxury of having warm sunny beaches around the country. Each and every year, many tourists visit Sri Lanka to feel this natural beauty.
