Yala, world’s 19th best national park – Tripadvisor

Tripadvisor, Inc. the world’s largest online travel platform has picked Yala National Park the 19th best National Park in the world among 25 other Parks.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania tops the list while Jim Corbett National Park, India and Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya in second and third place respectively.

National Park is the most visited and second largest national park in Sri Lanka, bordering the Indian Ocean.

“There are many different reasons to add Yala National Park to your must-see list: the chance to go on safari and see a wild boar or majestic Sri Lankan leopard, the winding trails, and the fact that in some places the park even touches the Indian Ocean. However, two of the most popular reasons to visit are Sithulpauwwa, a Buddhist rock temple, and Magul Maha Viharaya, where folklore says an ancient king wed an abandoned princess. The history and artefacts found here transport you back to those ancient times,” Tripadvisor said.
