Map of Sri Lanka
For a small island, Sri Lanka packs a mighty punch.

Use our map of Sri Lanka below to start planning your trip.
Whether you fancy looking for leopards and elephants at Yala National Park, discovering the origins of your cuppa at Dambatenne Tea Factory, or climbing up to the palace in the clouds on the top of Sigiriya rock, Sri Lanka offers plenty to explore. Gain an insight into the rich and complex history which underpins this unique destination, wander through the ancient ruined city of Anuradhapura, a UNESCO world heritage site once populated by as many as ten thousand Buddhist monks, or gaze upon the magnificent Temple of the Tooth at Kandy.Find out more about Sri Lankachevron_right
