Best time to visit Sri Lanka

The beautiful island country can be visited all around the year, however December to April is considered as the best time to visit Sri Lanka. The only major point of focus is which side of the country is to be visited in a particular month. If you are deciding to visit the West and South coasts and discover the hilly regions, December to March is an ideal time for it.

However, April/May to September is best time to explore the Eastern Coast. Also, know that this country receives two different monsoon seasons at different times. So it implies that where one part of the country is wet, the other can be dry at the same time. With Sri Lanka’s position being close to the Equator, the temperature of this island country remains relatively constant throughout the year.  The weather of Sri Lanka is dictated by two monsoon seasons which brings rain to the west and south west coast from May to September, and the east coast and northern region between October and February.  The rest of the year is dry and bright; temperatures are genuinely steady all year, with coastal regions enjoying normal temperatures of 25-30 degree Celsius.

The climate of Sri Lanka is surprisingly complex, its equatorial position means that temperatures are fairly constant throughout the year. It is usually hot and humid by the coast getting cooler as altitude increases. So, regardless of when you choose to travel, you are likely to enjoy some good weather depending on where you go.
