Our thoughts are with the people of Sri Lanka
We are deeply saddened by the news of the terror attacks that took place in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday. Our thoughts and sympathies are with the people of Sri Lanka and the friends and families of those impacted.
In light of these events, we have received news from our travel partners in Sri Lanka indicating that all of their staff are safe and well. In addition, we can report that Mountain Kingdoms did not have any clients travelling within Sri Lanka at this time.
On 25th April 2019, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) updated their travel advice to advise against all but essential travel to Sri Lanka, due to the current evolving security situation following attacks on 21 April 2019.
View up-to-date FCO advice for Sri Lanka - https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/sri-lanka .
We will be monitoring this advice in the weeks ahead.
If you are travelling to Sri Lanka with Mountain Kingdoms and would like to discuss recent events, please call 01453 844400.

We were very saddened to see the devastating effects of the severe flooding in Kerala in Southern India last month. It is a destination which is very popular with Mountain Kingdoms’ clients and although none of our tours are affected, there are areas which have been truly devastated by the catastrophic flooding.
