Best time to visit Sri Lanka
Winter is the best time to visit Sri Lanka
The island country can be visited all around the year, however December to April is considered as the best time to visit Sri Lanka. The only major point of focus is which side of the country is to be visited in a particular month. If you are deciding to visit the West and South coasts and discover the hillsides, December to March is an ideal time for it. However, April/May to September is best to see the Eastern Coast. Also, know that this country receives two different monsoon seasons at different times. So it implies that where one part of the country is wet, the other can be dry at the same time. With Sri Lanka’s position being close to the Equator, the temperature of this island country remains relatively constant throughout the year.

Sri Lanka is a very clean and a beautiful country. I visited Galle, Mirissa, Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Sigiriya and Colombo in June. The beaches were quite empty (because of offseason), beautiful and clean. The mountains were mesmerising and the history related to the country was quite amazing. The train ride part from Ella to Kandy is a must take one. It offers you a combination of enchanting hills, tea plantations, splendid bridges and waterfalls.
