Oct 14, 2009 (LBO) - A Sri Lankan tourism package called the 'Ramayana trail' that covers sites mentioned in a 2,000-year-old epic poem popular in south Asia is drawing droves of Indian visitors to the island, officials said. The number of tourists visiting the island has increased sharply since the end of its 30-year ethnic war in May when government forces defeated the Tamil Tiger separatists.

The war had been the main deterrent to tourists.

The Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority has said the island hopes to attract 2.5 million tourists by 2016 and has launched several projects to increase the number of rooms to cater to the anticipated numbers.
