Top 5 Sri Lanka experiences

Sri Lanka, which is located just below India, will not have you struggling to find activities to do while on holiday there. Here are our top 5 experiences to check out when abroad in Sri Lanka.
1. Hiking the Pidurangala Rock
Situated north of Sigiriya, Sri Lanka, this rock is an exhilarating climb taking 2-3 hours to reach the top. Once at the top you're met with an unforgettable view. Its relatively cheap at 300-500 Rs which is a reasonable price considering the experience.
2. Visiting Gal Vihara -
Gal Vihara is a carving of Buddha located in Polonnaruwa. Combininghigh craftsmanship and beautiful carvings makes Gal Vihara one of Sri Lanka's must-visits and will not disappoint by all means. 
3. Handunugoda Tea Estate - 
If you want to experience some of Sri Lanka's foods and flavours then this tea estate is your next trip. With an insight into the growth and production of the manufacturing of tea, then tea tasting accompanied by cake and all in a serene garden. Finally there is the opportunity to purchase some of the tea they make. All this makes for an excellent afternoon in Tittagalla, Sri Lanka.
4. Passikudah Beach -
If a relaxing day on the sand to the tune of gently rolling waves is more your forte then its worth taking a trip down to Kalkudah to visit Passikudah Beach. With white sand, warm sea and being fairly un-populated.
5. Habarana elephant ride - 
Located 210 km NE from Colombo this experience of riding on the back of a large elephant as transport for a safari, is definitely imperative to do before your trip to Sri Lanka is over.
