Top 5 reasons to visit and volunteer in Sri Lanka

  • Elephants – Watching majestic wild elephants wander in tropical forest or lowland woodlands within one of the countries many national parks should not be missed!

  • The Southern coast – Explore the lanes in the old town of Galle Fort, surf in Miri or relax on the golden beaches of Unawatuna

  • Food – pineapple curry, egg hopper, kottu, roti, dhal, coconut sambal, deviled vegetables – it is a true vegetarian’s paradise!

  • Tea – Sri Lanka was formally known as “Ceylon” and the countries infamous tea has well-deserved reputation of being one of the best in the world. The train journey to the tea-tasting opportunities in the rolling estates surrounding Nuwara Eliya is often peoples highlight of their trip

  • The Cultural Triangle – A perfect trio of sites in central Sri Lanka include the ruins of Anuradhapura city, the ancient city of Polonnaruwa and the 5th century citadel of Sigiriya, where the stunning views are worth the steep climb up Lion Rock!
