What is the weather like in Sri Lanka?
 
 The weather is warm and tropical all year round in the Wilpattu area of Sri Lanka and there are no seasons. In July, August and September, these are traditionally dry months when the ‘Gathering’ happens. The 'Gathering' is when the largest number of Asian Elephants in the world gather each year at Minneriyia National park. The reason is due to the dry season when the Minneriyia National lakes remain the only water source in the area that doesn’t dry up.
