Best time to Visit Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka sees two moonsoon seasons so it is best to visit different parts of the country at different times of the year. The Yala Monsoon, which takes place from May through August, affects the Hill Country's south and west coasts. This is the best time to visit the regions to the north and east. At the other hand, the Maha Monsoon takes place from December to March and covers the regions north, east and west, leaving the west, south and hill country ideal for visiting. But both April and September are among the best holiday months, as the weather is good and there is no rain.
