Sri Lanka is a tear drop shaped island in the Indian Ocean, also known as the ‘Pearl of the Ocean’. This presentation will take you through its 2000 years of culture, colonial towns, tea plantations and National Parks. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage sites, going from sacred cities to cave monasteries and Dutch Forts, and ending up on idyllic, palm-fringed beaches. For a small country, Sri Lanka certainly packs a big punch.
Born and bred in Colombo, Mahiru, the manager of Travel The Unknown's Sri Lanka operations, was determined from an early age, to travel and explore the whole of Sri Lanka. The travel industry was a perfect fit, not just to discover it for himself as regularly as possible, but to also share it with others. Being an outdoor enthusiast, his favourite spots within the country are the national parks and hills that offer trails for soft hikes, waterfalls and stunning views, which can be enjoyed with a shot of arrack in hand. His favourite dish is the Black Pork Curry, which, he considers himself a master chef at preparing.Watch the recording of this event on YouTube. Visit our Sri Lanka page
