Anyone have info on touring in Sri Lanka? I am planning a trip this September where I will have 10 days to explore. Advice is much appreciated!! My questions are:
- are there any books, people i should be looking into?
- given the current political climate (which is relatively good compared to previous years and to other countries), is it safe to tour alone as a 30yo english speaking female?
- are the roads safe? i have heard of the dangers in certain parts of India, but imagine a different country = different scene.
- any rec' routes/areas? i would like to board at night versus camp, so housing ~50km/day is ideal.
- any misc info about sri lanka, or things to pack?
Please pass the word along to anyone, as I have found little resources on this country and touring.
