Sri Lanka Info

Capital City: Colombo
Sri Lanka,formerly known as Ceylon, is in Southern Asia. It is an island country in the Indian Ocean, south of India.

Climate

Since Sri Lanka is a tropical country, you can expect the rain anytime of the year in most parts. However, the two major rainy seasons are North-East monsoon (October to January) and South-West monsoon (May to July).
Being an island, the climate of Sri Lanka changes dramatically from one part of the country to another. For example at Nuwara Eliya, in the hills of Central Province, has a temperature around -5-20 C throughout the year, whereas Hambanthota, located in the dry zone, has a temperature consistently around 30-35 C.

Terrain

Mostly low, flat to rolling plain; mountains in south-central interior.
 ▪  Highest point: Pidurutalagala 2,524 m
