Sri Lanka Tourism Updates
Post Easter Sunday Incident
Habarana is a small city in the Anuradhapura District of Sri Lanka. The location has some mid-range and up hotels aimed at package tourists, and is a departure point for other nearby locations of greater interest. Habarana is a popular tourist destination for safari lovers as it is the starting point for safaris in the nearby Habarana jungle and the Minneriya sanctuary which is heavily populated by elephants. Elephant back riding is also an attraction in this small city. Habarana is situated nearby to the ancient rock fortress and castle/palace ruin of Sigiriya and is situated on the main road from Colombo to Trincomalee, Polonnaruwa and Batticaloa. The population of the city is expected to be in the area of 5000-10,000. The area has some of the best hotels in the country and the greenery and wild life has added value, making the location attractive for tourists
Habarana, located approximately 170 km from Colombo, is ideally located connecting ancient capitals of Anuradhapura & Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya/Dambulla on the cultural triangle whilst being en route to Passikuka/Kalkuda & Trincomalee, the famous beaches on the Eastern seaboard not forgetting the wildlife lover, an excursion to Minneriya or Kaudulla, is merely a half an hour away.
Famed as a round tour destination due to central location, Habarana enables you to use it as a base to visit all places of interest within the cultural triangle or as a point to break your journey before going to the East coast beaches for sun and surf or going on safari to Minneriya or Kaudulla National Parks to observe wildlife.
We have an interesting excursion available in Habarana, in the form of a traditional bullock cart ride. This maximum three hour program is designed for you to experience the real traditional Sri Lankan rural village style, where you will travel in a Bullock cart to a rural village through lush green paddy fields where you will be served tea and " juggery" along with lunch made to authentic Sri Lankan style. Traditional cooking methods, and a visit to a paddy field to see how the local farmers protect their crops from the wild animals, will be demonstrated. The finale of this excursion will be a traditional canoe ride in a lake in Habarana. Highly recommended as a "must do" activity when you are in Habarana to get feel the real Sri Lanka.
