    Sri Lanka maintains lovely warm and tropical climate through all the year. The rainy monsoon season lasts from October to January. During the rest of the year there is very little rainfall. Therefore, people and animals must conserve that precious moisture.

May, June and July are probably the hottest months of the year and a great time to go on the beach for a little sunbathing.

Streams transform from cascades into waterfalls and rapids became calm rivers, which are flowing down into vastness of the Ocean. Sri Lanka has an amazing relation towards nature: although they belong to countries with the highest density of the inhabitants in the world.
