Description: 

UVS International invites you to travel differently, in a solidary way in order to help the population of Sri Lanka.

With its 20 million inhabitants, the island of Sri Lanka used to be a strategic axis in Antiquity and spices business. Now, it is well-known for its symbolic landscapes: rice fields and mesmerizing green plantations of tea or even the secrets and mysteries about ancient cities immersed in the tropical forest.

You’ll be able to see leopard and elephants, powerful animals from religious Buddhist legends but also monkeys and multicolored birds.
