Water & Land Adventure Sports

Sri Lanka has something to offer everyone including the sports & adventure lovers. On the adventure side of eco-tourism, it has the potential to become one of the great adventure destinations in the world. A rocky, mountainous core rises in three steps from the centre of the island. Sheer rock faces abound in an island dissected with ridges and mountain ranges. More than 103 rivers cascade down to the ocean, allowing plenty of scope for canoeing and white-water rafting. Anything from easy, grade one stretches, to hair-raising grade six rapids, to make even a seasoned rafter's heart pump fast, is available. Sri Lanka 's potential for scuba diving is probably understated. In addition to the well-known reefs, several others lie unexplored, off the routine diving-circuit.

It is probably in trekking that Sri Lanka has the potential to stake a claim as a premier soft-adventure destination. Being a relatively compact island, it is not too difficult to design a trekking circuit that will run from the cool highlands to the humid, lowland rain-forests, or the parched-dry lowlands. A trek can start at altitudes where temperatures drop below freezing, and end only a few days later, in an almost desert-like environment. The mountainous core and seasonal monsoons work to produce markedly different climatic zones in a relatively small area. The trekker can experience mountain forests, alpine grasslands, tea estates, paddy fields and scrub jungles, all in the space of a week.

The warm waters - 27°C/80°F – around Sri Lanka 's coast encourage wonderful surfing, diving and snorkeling. The calmer inland waters offer windsurfing, water skiing, dinghy sailing and jet-skis.

Fascinating & Gushing Waterfalls in Sri Lanka


Sri Lanka , in comparison to its size, has perhaps the largest number of waterfalls of any country in the world. Indeed, there are nearly 400 in Sri Lanka . A recent study undertaken by the Lanka Council on Waterfalls (LCWF) - an organization set up to improve public awareness and understanding of water issues to promote the conservation and wise use of nature and natural resources - has recorded 382 waterfalls in Sri Lanka.

The waterfalls in Sri Lanka are well distributed and are not confined to the hill country. Even Colombo District has four waterfalls. Of course they are not very tall - two are just four metres each, another 10m and the fourth is 15m. Kurunegala District has just one - six metres tall. Gampaha and Hambantota districts have two each.

The largest number of waterfalls are in the Ratnapura district (109) followed by Nuwara Eliya (75) and Kegalle (40). Some of the waterfalls have very interesting stories attached to them, mainly folk tales and legends. The most beautiful waterfalls have been selected for stamps and there have been a number of issues featuring waterfalls.

The Enchanted Wildlife - Bird Watching, Safari

There is a long tradition of conservation rooted in its ancient traditions which teaches kindness to all living creatures and indeed Sri Lanka has an abundance of exotic and varied wildlife - whether it be on land or in the water.

Mammals - Of the 92 species of mammals in Sri Lanka , 14 of which are endemic, pride of place goes to the majestic elephant.

Despite human encroachment, the island's biggest cat - the leopard - continues to prowl the remaining small forest areas. Many species of deer - the Sambar, the Hog Deer and the Mouse Deer - as well as the Sloth Bear can be found in the Parks. Other mammals such as the Wild Boar, Porcupine and Monkey - especially the Grey Langur - are common throughout the island. In the north-western seagrass beds, the protected Dugong can still be spotted. The Bear Monkey, a subspecies of the endemic Purple-faced Leaf Monkey is confined to the montage region, whilst the others arc found across humid areas of the country. The highest endemic number of mammals in Sri Lanka are amongst the shrews, and the largest group of mammals-consisting of 36 species - are bats.

Butterflies - To the naturalist, Sri Lanka offers a tantalising array of interesting and unique butterfly forms. Of the 242 known species, 42 are endemic to the island.

Inland Waterways - With cascading waterfalls and as many as 103 rivers, all major groups of vertebrates can be found in Sri Lanka . Of these, the highest endemic species are found in the amphibian and reptile group. Most of the 107 species of fish are marsh and river dwelling.

 

An Orchestra of Birds for Bird Watching Lovers - The abundance of Sri Lanka 's bird-life makes it an ornithologist's paradise. Of the 435 recorded species, 230 are resident, and no less than twenty-three are endemic to the island. Most of the endemic birds, like the Sri Lanka Myna or the Yellow-eared Bulbul, are restricted to the wet zone. Others such as the striking red-faced malkoha and the Sri Lanka Spot-wingcd Thrush, can be found throughout the island, although confined to small areas of humid forest.

Among the best areas for bird-life are the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary and the Polonnaruwa Archaeological Reserve Area. Around mid-August, the first flocks of the species that winter in Sri Lanka begin to arrive with large numbers of waders from northern temperate countries - sandpipers, stilts, plovers and tcrns - finding refuge in the unique lagoons along the coastal belt

In the forested areas, migratory tree warblers, thrushes and cuckoos can be found. Reservoirs in the dry zone attract numerous types of ducks, whilst large water birds - including storks, herons and egrets - can easily be spotted in areas such as Buniala, Kalametiya and Wirawila in the north-western province. The eastern lagoons in the island, particularly Bundala, are especially famous for migrating flocks of flamingoes.

If it is Game Fish you are after, then there are plenty of Marlin, Barracuda, Yellowfin or Grouper to be found in the Ocean off Sri Lanka - as well as sightings of Dolphins and Whales.

The reefs and seabeds also offer another exciting attraction. For the skilled diver; underwater archaeologists or photographer submerged wrecks abound in coastal waters - from centuries old galleons to the aircraft carrier HMS Hermes (sunk in 1942), there are plenty of wrecks to explore.
