Take one of the world’s most celebrated railway rides from Colombo and wind your way up paddy fields, jungles and mountains to reach this ancient hill capital that served as the last kingdom of Sri Lanka.
Whether it's a day out in Kandy, or sightseeing or hikes in Kandy, there’s no shortage of places to visit in this bustling hill capital. Buddhist traditions and natural beauty come together with temples, shrines and palaces scattered around the town’s centerpiece lake. The city center is characterised by noisy three - wheelers, bustling markets, and throngs of tourists, but the mist - capped mountain peaks of the Hanthana range are an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. Not to mention, these peaks also offer some of the best views overlooking Kandy town.
