Adventure holidays in Sri Lanka should take in the Sri Dalada Maligawa
Sri Lanka is one of the "most beautiful countries in the world" and is ideal for people hoping to experience nature on an adventure holiday, according to a travel publication.
Wanderlust, a magazine and website which provides advice to adventure travellers and other holidaymakers, noted that the country has an abundance of culture as well as the natural splendour.
"Hanging like a tear-drop from the southern tip of India, Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful countries in the world," a writer for the adventure travel magazine noted.
"Amidst all this [beauty] there's culture too. Overwhelmingly Buddhist, Sri Lankans practice their gentle beliefs with a lavish enthusiasm. There are thronged temples and sacred relics, religious festivals and extravagant sacraments."
One of the biggest attractions in Sri Lanka, according to the publication, is the Sri Dalada Maligawa - or the Temple of the Tooth - a World Heritage Site which contains a tooth belonging to Buddha.
