Why we love it
As well as its diverse wildlife, Yala is a landscape steeped in rich culture and ancient history. Let trained rangers guide you deep into the caves of Sithulpawwa in the heart of the National Park, a Buddhist monastery believed to date back to 2nd century BC. A haven of solitude and serenity, this heritage site offers a unique insight into the lost world of the secluded monks and ancient Sri Lankan kings of times gone by. This is a deeply moving cultural experience not to be missed.
