60 Awesome Photos of Sri Lanka To Inspire Your Travels

60 Awesome Photos of Sri Lanka To Inspire Your Travels

I was lucky enough to spend almost a month exploring Sri Lanka with friends. These are some of my favorite Sri Lanka Photos from our trip!

We had the most epic sunset at Sigiriya Rock, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Sri Lanka.

What Photography Gear do I use?

Do you want to know about the cameras, lenses, and different gear I use to capture my adventures? I’ve listed my four different cameras below but you can check out all my lenses, accessories, and favorite camera backpack in my article: MY PHOTOGRAPHY GEAR: WHAT’S IN MY BACKPACK

The elephant safari in Kaudulla National Park was a highlight for me. The cars sit pretty still and this mother and calf scurried in between the convoy.

Hiking to the top of Diyaluma Falls with no other tourists in sight!

The insta-famous rope swing in Dalawella Beach!

A beautiful sunset at the Movenpick in Colombo.

The Elephant Sanctuary in Pinawalla.

The sunset safari in Kaudulla was one of my favorite things to do in Sri Lanka.

Pidurangala Rock for sunrise is just across from Sigiriya Rock. Definitely, put this on your bucket list.

Sigiriya Rock explorations.

Hiking in Riverston with no other tourists around. Nature at it’s best with a great view of the knuckles mountain range.

The train from Kandy to Ella is my number one recommendation for things to do in Sri Lanka. You get to see first hand the local transportation, meet some locals and see the amazing sights out of the window. These are my favorite series of Sri Lanka Photos.

The nine-arch bridge in Ella is an incredible piece of architecture and something I will never forget.

Little Adam’s Peak hike in Ella was such an incredible sunset experience and only an hour hike.

Diyaluma Falls was 600ft high and refreshing after a one hour hike.

Enjoying the beach at Tangalle.
