Nature in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a Nature's wonder. The little island 270 km by 140 km in size has everything a nature lover will look for. The highly diversified island differs from city to city, district to district and province to province. Mountains, Plains, Water Falls, National parks, Sea, Beaches Rocks, Paddy fields, Tea Gardens, Rain Forests, Rivers, Landscapes, Streams all are beautiful. The Sri Lankan nature’s beauty blends in its wild life of elephants, birds, Dolphins, wales, animals, flowers and trees.

In Sri Lanka nature is considered as sacred. The world's first Wild Life Cuntuary was created by King Devanam Piyatissa on the request of Arahath Mahinda Thero (the sun of Great King Dharmashoka) who brought buddism to Sri Lanka.
