Geography in Sri Lanka

Srilanka lies practically in the centre of Indian Ocean and thus has climate and cultural links with three continents. Monsoon winds driving against Srilanka’s peaks, support lush vegetation on the southern half of the island, but the northern half is dry zone. These winds affect the human culture as well; the South Asian landmass to the north has strongly influenced Sri Lankan culture in the past and continues to do so.

Overall, Sri Lanka has varied terrain but it mainly consists of flat lands but the south-central portion of countries inferior features mountains and step sided river canyons. Sri Lanka's atmosphere is tropical and the southwestern piece of the island is the wettest. The northeastern piece of Sri Lanka is drier and a large portion of its rain tumbles from December to February. Sri Lanka's typical yearly temperature is around 86°F to 91°F (28°C to 31°C).

An important geographic note about Sri Lanka is its situation in the Indian Ocean, which made it helpless against one of the world's biggest tragic events. On December 26, 2004, it was struck by an extensive tsunami that hit 12 Asian nations. Around 38,000 individuals in Sri Lanka were murdered during this occasion and a lot of Sri Lanka's drift was plagued.
