For the past decade, I’ve had the immense privilege of being part of the Blue Lanka Tours family, and what a transformative journey it has been. Travel is no longer just a hobby; it’s become an integral part of my existence which is something I live, breathe, and savor every day. To be able to share my wealth of knowledge with travelers from around the world is a profound honor, and it’s a role I cherish deeply.
One of my all-time favorite travel experiences is climbing the Sigiriya Lion Rock, known for being one of the eight wonders of the world, which is a remarkable honour as a fellow Sri Lankan due to its rich history. The Yala Safari comes right after offering one-of-a-kind encounters with the wild. It’s an experience so profound that I’d gladly embark on it again and again if given the chance.
Then there’s the heartwarming tranquility of a stroll around Gregory Lake, located in the heart of Nuwara Eliya. Boating and rowing on the lake adds a touch of magic to this serene landscape. The breathtaking sunset, the sheer beauty of the moment would take your breath away.

Climbing Sigiriya Rock
Scaling this historic landmark, often dubbed one of the world’s wonders, is an incredible experience. Given the chance, I would eagerly do it again. It’s a truly wonderful feeling.
Jeep safaris seem to be a favorite for everyone. Watching wildlife and embarking on the bouncy jeep ride is an outstanding adventure. It feels like a wild roller coaster on wheels.
Crossing whale watching off my bucket list was a dream come true. Given the opportunity, I would certainly do it again. Being out in the vast ocean, in serene stillness, and waiting for a colossal whale to grace your path is an unforgettable feeling that lasts a lifetime.
- Whale Watching: The whales don’t wait for you, so rise early for the best chances of sighting these majestic creatures. Only if you are ready for the motion of the ocean. Not for weak tummies.
- Luxury Yacht Experience: Pack essentials like sunscreen, swimwear, soft-shelled luggage, a dry bag, a spare pair of glasses, passport, and Visa.
- Stay Connected: 4G connectivity is readily available. Opt for a Dialog sim card and enjoy hassle-free connectivity. Just visit a small convenience shop to top up.
- Timing Matters: To make the most out of climbing the Sigiriya Rock, visit in the morning to avoid the heat and the crowds that gather in the afternoon.
