After five years, Australia’s cricket team is returning to Sri Lanka. Their tour of the island begins on 26th July and will run for six weeks, during which the team will play five ODIs and two T20s, as well as the three test matches.

 

Sri Lanka will be keen to prove themselves on their home turf, especially in light of their recent disappointment in the World T20. The reigning champions were knocked out in the quarter finals following a dramatic clash with England where they were defeated by ten runs.

Taking the Train from Kandy to Ella

 

Sri Lanka’s broad diversity makes it an island like no other. The beautiful beaches of the south, the mysterious mangroves that line the Mahaweli river, the cloud forests of Horton Plains National Park, the unique flora and fauna of Knuckles Mountain Range… the list goes on. Considering its size, this wide variety is astonishing.

Unarguably, some of Sri Lanka’s most spectacular scenery is found in the hill country: rolling hills covered with endless tea plantations, gushing waterfalls and plunging gorges and mist-shrouded mountains peppered with enormous fir trees.
