The South Asian terrain of Sri Lanka is diverse and wild — perfect for an adventurous hiking trip. The small island country, located in the Indian Ocean, boasts views of the Arabian Sea to one side, Bay of Bengal to the other and ancient shrines and temples within.

 

Sigiriya

Head to the ancient city ruins of Sigiriya — we are talking fifth-century cities and rock fortresses — on your trip to Sri Lanka. Head out on scenic hikes and climbing expeditions to Pidurangala Rock, or head to the canyons of Cobra Hood Cave. See some wildlife at Minneriya National Park and even sit back for a safari ride through the wildlife sanctuary.

 

Haputale

Located in the Badulla District, Haputale is home to waterfalls and scenic overlooks galore. Head to Diyaluma Falls, the second-highest waterfall in Sri Lanka, with one point drop. Hike to Lipton’s seat to take in panoramas of the famous tea farm, or stick to Eagle Rock viewpoint trails for sweeping views of the countryside.

 

Ella

Another small town in the Badulla District, so travelers could hit a few sites in one, Ella offers jungle views from Ravana Falls and the Nine Arches Bridge. You’ll feel completely surrounded by wilderness, with even the high-climbing mountains around you covered in forests below and clouds above.

Glen Ellen Star

On a recent trip to Sonoma County, my husband and I spent a night in Glen Ellen, California. We wanted to have dinner close to where we were staying and noticed Glen Ellen Star was a brief walk from our hotel.
