February’s weather in detail

As with January, dry conditions in Uda Walawe and Wilpattu National Parks are good for wildlife spotting as the animals gather around water holes. There's also the chance of spotting leopard basking in the sun at Yala National Park.

Heading inland, warm and dry weather continues throughout the Cultural Triangle in February (avg temp: 27 °C). Temperatures in the Tea Country, around Nuwara Eliya, are cooler due to the higher altitude (avg temp: 20 °C) but predominantly dry making February a good month for trekking the Knuckles Mountain range.
