ELEPHANT GATHERING TOUR

9 NIGHTS, Round trip airfare on Singapore Airlines from $3,850*

Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, has a rich ancient and colonial heritage. The capital, Colombo, is situated on the coast, while the interior is filled with waterfalls, lush verdant countryside and tea plantations. Sri Lanka's ancient civilization and Buddhist tradition left behind magnificent World Heritage sites in the famed Cultural Triangle. Yet it retains a splendid ecological environment with miles of pristine beaches and unspoiled National Parks, with a large population of Asian elephants and Leopards.
