It has been decided to formulate a national policy to uphold the standard of adventure tourism services. The decision was made during a discussion held at the Prime Minister’s Office with the objective of advancing the tourist industry in Sri Lanka.
Adventure tourism has become increasingly popular in the global tourism industry. Several programmes are operative to promote the adventure tourism service field in the tourism industry of Sri Lanka as well. The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority has established a website allocated for this purpose. It allows access to information on the locations that provide services for adventurous activities.
Adventure tourism has the potential to render the Sri Lankan tourism industry more attractive and directly contribute to the improvement of the national economy.
