Habarana is a small city situated in the centre of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle. Due to its location just halfway between Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa and between Kandy and Trincomalee, Habarana is a convenient location for package tourists who want to discover the cultural and natural attraction of the Cultural Triangle on day trips, instead of changing the hotel every second day. Habarana has a choice of mid-range hotels in particular. Besides being not far from World Heritage Site Sigiriya, Habarana is also situated in the immediate surroundings of elephant national parks and ecoparks and also offers traditional village life excursions with oxcart and elephant back ridings.
