Where to go in Sri Lanka in july: destination map

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

warning in july the weather is not the same depending on the city and regions of the country.

Although it is not perfect the weather in Sri Lanka in july is good in Wilpattu National Park, Trincomalee, Dambulla, Puttalam and Anuradhapura. I allows to savor tours in these locations. And even why not take a little time to sunbathe!

If you do not go the sun and blue sky, but, for example to discover the heritage, the cities of Arugam Bay, Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Batticaloa, Udawalawe National Park, Neluwa, Ella and Jaffna have a OK but just acceptable weather for that in july. Eventually, it is not advisable to travel to Yala National Park, Hikkaduwa, Negombo, Galle, Bentota, Colombo and Kalutara that month because the climate is rather unfavorable.
