Travelers Have To Say

Nous revenons de 15 jours au Sri Lanka, en famille de 6. Nous avons fait notre circuit et nos réservations d’hôtels nous-mêmes. Ensuite on s’est mis à la recherche d’un chauffeur. Nous avons donc fouillé les forums pour trouver L’agence qui n’avait QUE des commentaires positifs: Atypique Lanka. A cela s’ajoute un bon premier contact téléphonique avec le propriétaire de l’agence Chamika (parfait francophone). Nous nous sentions donc entre de bonnes mains. Notre chauffeur Prasad (anglophone) nous attendait! Il était parfait.

Les Mumu – Forum du Routard. Août 2015.

Nous sommes partis a deux 3 semaines au Sri Lanka avec Atypique Lanka. Nous avions choisi une formule avec un guide et un chauffeur francophones, comprenant deux semaines de découverte et une semaine de plage. Nous avons choisi cette agence car elle semblait notemment proposer des hotels de charme, trés différents des hébérgements “basiques” offerts par les autres TO. Et nous avons été comblé !

nous avons découvert cette agence grâce à ce forum et effectivement nous avons été très satisfaits
Marjorie nous avait aidé et conseillé pour mettre au point le séjour, le choix des hotels était très bien ( standart ) hormis une fois où la demi pension n’était pas très bien, et Chamika, toujours en relation avec notre chauffeur et très à l’écoute, nous a offert un repas dans un autre restau !!!

Nous sommes partis 3 semaines avec Atypique Lanka en aout 2015 à 8 personnes (2 couples avec leurs 4 ados). Nous étions en relation avec Chamika tout au long de la préparation et du séjour.
Chamika s’est montré très présent et a su répondre à nos attentes en phase d’organisation. Il nous a proposé un circuit et des hébergements en fonction des souhaits que nous avions exprimés (lieux, sens du circuit,…). Il a procédé à plusieurs aménagements suite à l’évolution de nos souhaits.

Activities

raftingWith varying climates and geography packed into a small island Sri Lanka offers a range of adventures from the top of the mountains to the depths of the oceans.

Swimming or snorkeling are very popular but scuba diving and surfing are good additions to the potential activities to be done on Sri Lanka’s beaches. The sea around Sri Lanka is also one of the most challenging marine game fishing locations while white water rafting, kayaking and canoeing are some of the relatively new water sports practiced in the country.

Trekking and Hiking

Highlands of Sri Lanka with virgin rain forests, sacred mountains, lush tea gardens and plains filled with rare birds and insects coupled with mild temperatures and welcoming smiles of the villagers provide the ideal setting to an unforgettable walking experience. With multitude of roads winding through expanding mountains, lush green forests, paddy fields, parks and sleepy villages, Sri Lanka also offers many opportunities to keen hikers and trekkers. Climbing Adam’s Peak is a one in a lifetime memory.

Rafting / Canoeing

Kitulgala is a renowned place in Sri Lanka to practice adventure sports such as rafting. After coming off the slopes of Adam’s Peak, the clear waters of the Kelani River wind their way through the Hill Country of inland Sri Lanka before emptying into the Indian Ocean. With the Kelani’s special “Killer Fall” and “Butter Crunch” rapids, rafters are guaranteed a challenge, but are also offered a chance to relax, with small calm stretches allowing a refreshing swim in the river to unwind. Ideal times are from May to December. Canyoning is also possible in Kithulagala with plunge pools to jump in, “potholes” to wade across… and shoot down a few slides.

Diving / Snorkeling / Sailing

Sri Lanka offers world-class diving and snorkeling expeditions. Tropical fishes, magnificently colourful coral reefs and fascinating ship wrecks can be explored at several locations off the south coast of Sri Lanka. Bentota, Beruwela, Hikkaduwa, Unawatuna, Welligama, Polhena or Kirinda offers interesting diving and/or snorkeling spots on the southern coast of the island whereas Pigeon Island , off Nilaveli is a paradise of turquoise-coloured waters and abundant fish and coral life. Due to the monsoon seasons, west/south coast diving and snorkelling is generally best from November to April whilst the east coast waters are at their best from April to September.

Among the new activities in Sri Lanka you can also have an unforgettable sailing adventure on a catamaran and get the opportunity to snorkel, canoe, play with a stand-up-paddle board or swim around the boat while anchored in a breathtaking location. Sailing happens on west coast (Bentota and Mirissa) from October to March and in east coast (Trincomalee and Passikudah) from April to September.

Whale Watching / Turtle Watching

The ocean around Sri Lanka is the home to the gentle giants and the performers of the ocean. Dolphins and whales parade their presence at various locations around Sri Lanka during the months of December, January, February, March and April. Altogether 26 species of cetaceans rule the waters surrounding the country, making it one of the best locations for whale and dolphin watching. The whale watching can be done on the entire perimeter of the island, but the privileged places are Kalpitiya northwest and south Mirissa.

The island is also a sanctuary for sea turtles. Guests may have the chance to admire the different species of turtles: green, leatherback, loggerhead, hawksbill and olive ridley. Unfortunately, these are endangered species. Kosgoda and rekawa, south of Sri Lanka, are homes for turtles.

Cultural Heritage

heritageWith a history expanding over 3000years, Sri Lanka holds some of world’s ancient cities. Most of the cultural heritage of the island are situated in the Cultural Triangle. If Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya are the most famous there are also very nice unknown places.

Of all the ancient cities of the island, the most famed and most exquisite is the Kingdom of Anuradhapura. Sri Lanka’s third and the longest serving capital is also one of the most sacred cities of World Buddhists. It was the capital of Sri Lanka from the Fourth Century BC to the eleventh Century AD and was one of the most stable and durable centers of political power and urban life in South Asia. Anuradhapura is a World Heritage site since 1982. Sigiriya, a fifth century AD fortress and a water garden displays some of the most futuristic elements of landscaping and some of the oldest murals recorded in the country. View from the top is amazing with coconut trees, paddy fields surrounding the village. Sigiriya is a World Heritage site since 1982. Polonnaruwa, the second most ancient kingdom of the country started to decline in the 13th century and disappeared in the jungle. It’s only in the beginning of the 20th century that British rediscovered the ancient city. Polonnaruwa is a World Heritage site since 1982.

Wildlife

Despite its small size Sri Lanka is included among the top five biodiversity hotspots in the world. Ninety-one species of mammals live in Sri Lanka and the ocean around is home to large families of cetaceans including blue whales, sperm whales and lively dolphins.

Birds are also the glory of Sri Lanka’s wildlife with nearly 433 bird species, mainly found in Sinharaja rainforest and in Bundala national park. Although less celebrated, the island has one of the richest diversity of amphibians in the world with over 106 species. The country has long claimed to have the highest amphibian species density in the world with a high concentration in the Sinharaja rainforest.

Here are some of the most famous wildlife spots in Sri Lanka :

National Parks

There are 13 national parks and nearly a hundred protected areas in Sri Lanka. Udawalawe and Yala, in the South-East, are the most famous national parks for safari. In Yala you will encounter many species of animals including deer, crocodiles, wild boars, elephants, buffaloes and even a leopard or a bear for the lucky ones but also many tourists while Udawalawe is home to hundreds of elephants and less visited. National parks in the East (Minneriya, Eco Park, Kaudulla) are mainly homes to herds of elephants while bird lovers should head to Bundala National Park.

Tea Plantations and Waterfalls

Tea originated in China 5,000 years ago but it was Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, which made tea famous in the 19th and 20th centuries. Scotsman James Taylor is attributed to planting the first tea estate in Sri Lanka in 1867. Ceylon tea became famous and much loved for its unmatched quality and variety. The alchemy of land, sun and rain in the Paradise Island of Ceylon, as it was known then, presented the ideal climatic conditions for cultivation of tea.

Sri Lanka also has the largest number of waterfalls in the world. The geographical formation of the island with the central highland sloping down to the coastal plains has resulted in several rivers and streams starting from the central region flowing down the hilly slopes creating beautiful waterfalls in several places in the hill country.

The central highlands of the island with Nuwara Eliya, Hatton and Ella offer amazing walks with stunning views of stirring mountains carpeted with lush green tea gardens. You will also discover roaring waterfalls such as Bambarankada Falls (241m) and Diyaluma Falls (171m) which are among the highest or Ramboda Falls (116m), Dunhinda Falls (63m) or Baker Falls (22m) which are the most popular.

Sinharaja Rain Forest

The Sinharaja rainforest is a world heritage site and a significant ecotourism destination in Sri Lanka. This rainforest is home to nineteen of Sri Lanka’s twenty species of endemic birds and eight of Sri Lanka’s twelve endemic mammal species. Ceylon Blue Magpie, giant squirrel, dusky-stripped jungle squirrel, badger mongoose and endemic purple-faced leaf monkey and torque macaque are frequently seen. The reserve is also home to a large number of reptiles and amphibia.

The conservation value of Sinharaja is important as it holds a large number of endemic species of plants and animals and it is the last viable remnant of Sri Lanka’s tropical lowland rain forest.

Horton Plains

Horton Plains was designated as a National Park in 1988. At an altitude of 2,100 meters above sea level, Horton Plains spreads across over 3,169 hectares of the highest tableland of the island. The Park is home to a wide variety of flora and twenty-four species of mammal such as elk, deer, giant squirrel, wild boar, wild hare and porcupine. For bird enthusiasts, there are eighty-seven species, including many migratory birds. It also features many interesting attractions such as Bakers Falls, Chimney Pool and the famous World’s End, a 3700 ft sheer drop that offers fabulous views of the tea estates below and all the way out to the distant southern coastline.

Visitors to the park can follow a 10km loop that incorporates all of the spectacular features. The best time to visit is early in the morning as this is when the air is likely to be clearest so that you can enjoy the best of the views. In the afternoons, clouds tend to descend and the area becomes submerged in mist.

Horton Plains National Park, along with the Peak Wilderness Sanctuary and Knuckles Mountain Range comprises the Central Highlands World Heritage Site.
