Minneriya National Park is located in the North Central Province and is closer to Minneriya tank. You can access the park from Dambulla, Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya. The park is a dry season feeding ground for the elephant population dwelling in forests of Matale, Polonnaruwa and Trincomalee districts.
Actions: Enjoy a full day visit to Dambulla Caves and admire the murals and statues. If you are taking lotus flowers, the monkeys will try to grab them.
