Day 4

Today you will arrive in the hill capital of Kandy, surrounded by greenery and the great Mahaweli River. Eminent as the center of Buddhism and the capital of the last Sinhalese kingdom, the name Kandy evokes romantic notions in people of a lost hill kingdom, a lake, tea plantations, and a famous temple.

At your convenience, become acquainted with the city of Kandy and pay your respects to the golden-roofed Temple of the Tooth Relic, which houses Sri Lanka’s most sacred relic, a tooth of the Lord Buddha. Admire the delicate hill-country breezes that urge the mist to gently part, revealing colorful houses amid Kandy’s forested halo. Visit the lively market places, Upper Lake Drive, and the grandeur of the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. To step up the tempo, attend a dance performance featuring traditional dances from the different regions of Sri Lanka.

Welcome to Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka’s tea-growing region! Visit a tea estate and factory to see how Ceylon tea is made.

Afterwards, drive around the town to see the same. Often referred to as “Little England, this genteel highland community does have a rose-tinted, vaguely British-country-village feel to it, with its colonial-era bungalows, Tudor-style hotels, well-tended hedgerows, and pretty gardens. Do also indulge in a guided stroll of the town; pass the 18-hole golf course, the colonial members-only Hill Club, and English-styled country homes.
