Join us as we photograph and explore 'The Pearl of the Indian Ocean', Sri Lanka. With its rich culture, delicious food, ancient temples, amazing tea and welcoming people, Sri Lanka is fast becoming a must do photography destination.
With eight designated World Heritage Sites, Sri Lanka offers a wealth of experiences for the traveling photographer. As we travel from Columbo in a clockwise fashion through the country, we will visit and photograph palaces, temples, bazaars, national parks, the famous stilt fishermen, tea plantations and amazing wildlife. Previously known as Ceylon, Sri Lanka is the second largest exporter of tea in the world. During this workshop we will not only visit beautiful hillside tea plantations, but also take a scenic train ride to Ella, on which we will witness hundreds of shades of green of the countless tea plantations as they meet the blue sky in the horizon.
Beyond landscapes we will also experience some of this country’s emblematic wildlife by going on safari in a number of the national parks. During these safaris we hope to get the opportunity to see and photograph elephants, leopards, sloth bears, crocodiles, wild buffaloes and large flocks of migratory and indigenous birds. No Muench Workshop is complete without great food, and lucky for us Sri Lanka is known for its delicious and fresh foods. We will stay at some of the best hotels where we will enjoy the warm hospitality and great food of Sri Lanka.
