Sri Lanka has one of the longest histories, and this land has been mentioned in ancient scriptures of Ramayana and Mahabharata. The history of this country easily dates back to 2000 years on the written record. Sri Lanka is an island country located in the Indian Ocean, south of the Indian peninsular, and has a diverse topography, with mountainous terrains, waterfalls, agricultural landscapes, white-sand beaches, and a number of biodiversity and national parks. It is also imbibed with myths, legends, and rich culture. When here, you can soak your soul in the solitude of nature, hike nature trails, spend a splendid time by the beaches, and drown yourself in the long-standing history of the nation.  As Sri Lanka is a sub-tropical country, the climate here is usually on the warmer side, with scorching summers. They even receive heavy rainfalls that last until October. That’s why the ideal time to visit Sri Lanka is between November to March.  Sri Lanka’s ethnic classification indicates that it’s widely occupied by Sinhalese, Sri Lankan Tamils, and Indian Tamils.  Also, the majority of the people here identify as Buddhists, followed by Hindus, Muslims, and Christians.  During your stay in the land of Ravana, one should try to explore the local handicrafts, delicacies, and traditional dance forms like Bharatanatyam, Kandyan, and Sabaragamuwa dancing. As the largest producer of Tea in the world, Sri Lanka is best for its pure Ceylon tea, it is considered one of the finest teas globally.
