Sri Lanka

1 USD = 365.65 SLR

The Sri Lankan rupee has slowly gotten more and more favorable over the past couple of decades, but it completely skyrocketed this past year (a dollar converted to 201 SLR in February, and now look where we are). We’re more excited than ever to explore this incredible island nation, where you can see leafy tea plantations, Buddhist temples, golden beaches, and elephant sanctuaries in one memorable trip.

Adam’s Peak, Sri Lanka

Stairs leading to sunrise magic 
Start/end at Dalhousie; 9 miles (14km) round trip; more info

In world terms, this conical Sri Lankan mountain isn’t all that high at only 7360ft (2243m) – but don’t let its size fool you. It’s a punishing climb, favored by pilgrims who come to see the Sri Pada, or sacred footprint, said to have been left by either Buddha, Shiva or Adam, depending on which religion you happen to belong to.

There are six possible routes to the top, and the one most often used by trekkers is the Hatton Trail, a steep uphill slog involving numerous stairs cut into the mountain. To get there in time for sunrise requires both an early start and a hand from the weather gods: Sri Lanka’s jungly terrain means the peak is (unfortunately) often enveloped in clouds. Yet with luck, at the top you’ll have a memorable view encompassing the island’s westsouth and east coasts.

Mirissa – Concept La Mer

I samband med senaste besöket i Mirissa träffade vi på Michael Svensson .

Michael har rötterna i Jönköping och skulle snart öppna restaurangen Concept La Mer i Mirissa.

Ser fram emot att besöka Concept La Mer nästa gång vi kommer söderut. Lycka till Michael! Sri Lanka behöver fler entreprenörer som tror och satsar på landet.
