Gal Oya National Park in Sri Lanka’s eastern province has been chosen as one the ‘16 Most beautiful places to visit this spring’ on a Forbes article published in February.
Some of the other contenders include Indonesia, Geneva, Istanbul and Zion National Park and Lisbon. Gal Oya National Park is the only destination representing South Asia and was nominated to the list by the Co-Founder and Brand Director of Regenerative Resorts, Amanda Ho.
The national park is one of the few places in the island where visitors can observe wild elephants swimming in Sri Lanka’s largest man-made reservoir. The park also borders one of the last vedda (Sri Lanka’s indigenous) communities in the country.
