Formerly known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka is an island state located off the southern tip of India and has a long and varied history. The written records goes back well over 2,600 years, faming the island as an important part of the Hindu legend of Ramayana. In this lore, the island referred to as Lanka is the fortress of King Ravana, who captured the wife of Rama, who was an incarnation of the Hindu God, Vishnu. Legend has it that Hanuman, the Monkey God, flew over to Lanka and set the capital on fire, destroying it. Rama and his remaining troops later crossed over from the mainland by building a land bridge across the sea. More recently, the island was ruled four times by the Portuguese, Dutch and the British. Sri Lanka was a colony from 1802 to 1946 before gaining its independence. The island suffered through a civil war which was peacefully resolved and is looking at a bright and prosperous future. This carefully crafted itinerary will show us all that the island has to offer from gracious cities and delightful beach resorts, to historic temples and jungles teeming with wildlife. The group will be strictly limited in size so we encourage you to register early.
