cultural triangle

Sri Lanka’s famous historical sites have become the staple of many a travel programme. The ruined old capitals of Polonnuruwa and Anuradhapura, the lion rock of Mount Sigiriya, and the Dambulla rock temple, possess a real sense of history.
To add to the delight, one of the joys of exploring the cultural triangle is the chance to indulge yourself with some of the most luxurious hotels on the island.
We can design a holiday with the cultural triangle at its core – but with so much more besides. You might like to take a hot-air balloon ride, or to cycle along peaceful, rural roads and tracks.
Visit spice gardens and enjoy an enticing Lifestyle possibility. Ayurveda, meaning knowledge of life, is a natural healing method believed to have originated in India and Sri Lanka about 5,000 years ago. Use your cultural exploration as an excuse for a thorough detox.
