  • Kandy & Hill Country

Kandy and the Hill Country

The Sri Lanka's Hill-Country offers the most scenic, mist-wrapped sceneries of dramatic mountain peaks and rolling hillsides, carpeted with tea plantations. A world away from the tropical beaches and sweltering cities in the lowlands, the peaceful highlands with emerald green landscapes and the cool climate are a nature lover's paradise.

The northern part of the Hill-Country has been shaped by strong Sinhalese traditions, that live on in music, dance and architecture. The historic city of Kandy, Sri Lanka’s last independent kingdom, is home to the famous Temple of the Tooth, the country's most revered Buddhist relic, and the spectacular Perahera festival.

In contrast, the southern region preserves the British heritage of the colonial era, when the production of tea was introduced to Sri Lanka. Especially Nuwara Eliya, set in the heart of the Tea Country, still retains the feel of the ‘old world’ in its grandiose colonial style buildings.

The sleepy little towns and villages like Ella, Hatton and Haputale, offer a perfect base for relaxing with lots of fantastic walks through forests and tea plantations to temples and waterfalls. And the more adventurous may hike up to the summit of the Adam's Peak, go for trekking in the Knuckles Mountain Range or head to the Horton Plains National Park, known for an astounding 1,200-meter-high cliff called the World's End.
