Gateway to Sri Lanka’s central parks, Habarana is an excellent base from which to visit both the ancient cities of the Cultural Triangle and the Minneriya and Kaudulla National Parks. These parks are renowned for their elephant population, especially during August and September when hundreds meet to make the largest gathering of Asian elephants in the world.
Alongside the chance to view elephants in the wild and the beautiful landscape of the northern-central region, Habarana offers access to the ancient cities of Sigiriya, Pollunaruwa and Anuradhapura. With reclining Buddhas, vast dagobas, and towering rock forts, these cities offer a glimpse into Sri Lanka’s earliest kingdoms.
