Location

Sigiriya, Sri Lanka

Best time to go

Sri Lanka has generally good weather year round but does have two monsoon seasons in two different regions. From late May to late September, the southwest lowlands and central hills are affected and from November to February, the northeast side of the island is affected. March to mid-April is generally dry throughout the country as is June to September though it is hot.
