Sri Lanka is an island ringed with palm-fringed beaches. The landscape is a fertile plain that rises through rolling hills, planted with tea bushes, to misty mountains. Rain forests cover the southwest area. The forested slopes even rise into the clouds. The mountains are home to monkeys, elephants, and parakeets, while crocodiles lurk in the rivers. The rich beauty of the island inspired its name, Sri Lanka, meaning “the shining land”.
