Despite Willpaththu National Park's location in Sri Lanka's dry zone, it boasts nearly 60 lakes and is renowned for leopard, elephant and sambar deer spottings.
We choose to visit this park, rather than Yala National Park further south because we believe it offers our customers a better experience.
Our standard, mid-range accommodation offers a good level of service, often with other amenities such as a restaurant, bar, garden or swimming pool.
Generally rooms will be comfortable with en suite facilities.
Moderate pace tours are ideal if you want a holiday which combines exciting activities and experiences with plenty of time to relax and unwind.
Typically you’ll be active and busy for part of the day but then also have time to rest and recharge your batteries.
We visit the Koneswaram Temple, which dates back to the 3rd century BC and the ornate design is similar to that of the coloured carved temples of Madurai in South India.
We start this morning with a visit to the mountain peak of Mihintale.
It is believed that this was the site of a momentous meeting between the monk Mahinda and King Devanampiyatissa, introducing Buddhism to the country.
Exploring Mihintale involves climbing a flight of 1,840 shallow stone steps leading to the summit of the Missaka Mountain.
There are excellent views from the top looking back to Anuradhapura.
